the plan and proposed approach


What is neighbourhood planning?

Neighbourhood Planning is a way for communities such as ours to develop their own approach to deciding the future of the places where they live and work.

It is not a legal requirement but a right, which communities can use to determine the development and use of land and to make other improvements to their neighbourhood, including the development of homes, shops, offices, infrastructure and their design.

We want a Neighbourhood plan for Horsham because it will set out our community's vision for the un-parished areas of Horsham for up to the next twenty years. The Neighbourhood Plan has legal status so, decisions on planning applications must take the Neighbourhood Plan into consideration. Communities can put in place planning policies that will help deliver that vision or grant planning permission for the development they want to see.

Proposed Policy List Published! (18 Aug 2018)

The proposed policy list reflects the things that matter to the residents of Horsham shared with Blueprint through its extensive programme of consultation over the last four years. The proposed policy list can be viewed here.

Why Horsham Blueprint?

Because the Neighbourhood Plan will be a blueprint for the development of Horsham 10, 15, 20 years into the future

Why the “hands logo”?

Because neighbourhood planning is for everyone with a stake in the area. We would love everyone to put their “hands up” and be involved
