New Forest National Park draft Local Plan: 3 October - 28 November 2016

We are reviewing the local planning policies covering the National Park. This will result in the production of a new Local Plan which will be used to guide future planning decisions within the National Park.

Following an initial public consultation last year, we have published a draft version of the Local Plan and comments are invited between Monday 3 October and Monday 28 November 2016. Comments can be submitted via the online response form, emailed to or posted to: Policy Team, New Forest National Park Authority, Lymington Town Hall, Avenue Road, Lymington, SO41 9ZG.

More details on the draft Local Plan consultation - including the public drop-in events in October and November 2016 - can be found at
