Neighbourhood Plans: COVID-19 announcement

In light of recent announcements regarding COVID-19, Horsham District Council has reviewed its protocols regarding the consultation process for neighbourhood plans, a number of which were published for public consultation shortly before the government imposed the nationwide lockdown.

In order to continue to progress neighbourhood plans, we have made a decision to restart with the consultation process in accordance with government guidance. If you have difficulties in responding to the consultations online please contact neighbourhood.planning@horsham.gov.uk or call the following number 01403 215398 at the earliest possible opportunity so that we can take this into account. Each enquiry will be reviewed on a case by case basis.

Consultations will be kept under close review and please observe current COVID - 19 government guidance.
