Draft Wealden Heaths Phase II Special Protection Area Supplementary Planning Document
1.1 The adopted East Hampshire District Local Plan Part 1: Joint Core Strategy sets out the development strategy for East Hampshire District (including the areas in the South Downs National Park) up until 2028.
1.2 This draft Wealden Heaths Phase II Special Protection
Area Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) provides guidance
for applicants where development proposals will result in a
net increase in residential development (including Traveller
Accommodation) within 400 metres of the Wealden Heaths Phase
II Special Protection Area (SPA). The document sets out the
approach that East Hampshire District Council ("the Council")
and the South Downs National Park Authority ("the SDNPA")
will take to help meet the need for Gypsy, Traveller and
Travelling Showpeople accommodation and rural affordable
housing exception sites as this need cannot be met solely
outside of the 400 metre buffer zone.
1.3 This document does not apply to developments outside of the 400 metre buffer zone of the Wealden Heaths Phase II Special Protection Area (SPA).
1.4 This draft Wealden Heaths Phase II Special Protection
Area Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) is available for
public consultation for a period of eight weeks between 22
January 2018 and 5pm 19 March 2018.
