LPP2: Site Allocations and Development Management Policies

Chapter 2: General Policies

2.1  These are policies that will be relevant to all development within the Borough, regardless of location and type. Principles such as the importance of good design, which underpin these policies, have not changed significantly in recent years. As such, many of these policies carry forward the basis of policies in the Waverley Local Plan 2002. However, these policies have been updated to minimise repetition, comply with national policy, and meet the current and future challenges in the Borough.

When considering the policies in this Chapter, it is important to remember that the Development Plan should be read as a whole. This means that all relevant policies in Local Plan Part 1, relevant neighbourhood plans and other chapters of this document will be taken into account in determining planning applications, along with other material considerations. In addition, the minerals and waste local plans produced by Surrey County Council also form part of the Development Plan and must also be considered.
