Former Local Plans

Wealden District Council has worked on a number of Local Plans in the past that can be found at this webpage. This includes the Non-Statutory Wealden Local Plan that was approved by the Council on 14 December 2005. More recently, Wealden District Council has worked on the Strategic Sites Local Plan and the Wealden Local Plan that both reached the Examination in Public (EiP) stage of the plan-making process but were later withdrawn by the Council on 27 May 2015 and on 19 February 2020 respectively.
