The Plan is made up of two parts. Part One, the statutory part, sets out background, vision and proposed policies for the Hove Station Neighbourhood Plan Area. Part Two contains the aspirations by the Hove Neighbourhood Forum that cannot be part of a statutory planning document. We have also produced a short summary covering the essential elements.

How to Have Your Say

As part of the Regulation 14 Consultation process, we now invite comments on the draft plan. Please clearly indicate which policy or paragraph you are commenting on. The deadline for feedback is midnight, 11th May, 2019.

Once it has gone through a number of consultation steps, the Plan will be subject to a local referendum where the question will be:

Do you want Brighton & Hove City Council to use the Hove Station Neighbourhood Plan to help it decide planning applications in the Neighbourhood Area?’

We want to ensure there are no surprises before this referendum, so please take a look at the full plan or the summary and tell us what you think. You may also want to check our Frequently Asked Questions, or send us an email with any queries.
