Timetable for preparing a new local plan

The Rushmoor Local Plan was adopted in February 2019 and we have to review it every five years. We reviewed the local plan in 2023 and decided that an update of the local plan policies is required and a new local plan will need to be prepared for Rushmoor.

We have published a timetable for the preparation of a new local plan. This is known as the Local Development Scheme (LDS).

The Levelling Up and Regeneration Act 2023 has reforms to the plan-making process, including to the form and content of local plans.

In 2023, the government consulted on some of the detail of these reforms, but we will not know the full implications until the secondary legislation is published. We expect this to happen later in 2024.

Therefore, our Local Development Scheme (March 2024) is subject to change. We will review this once further detail on these reforms is published by the government.
