Planning Policy

Planning Policies are documents that help to decide how, where and when development in Horsham District takes place. These documents are used to help make decisions on planning applications and to plan the future needs of the district by assessing what changes are likely to happen and where.

The key Planning Policy document that a council must prepare is its Local Plan. The below documents support the Local Plan and provide information on how the documents are made.
