Do neighbourhood plans have to be evidence based and deliverable?

Yes, neighbourhood plans must have appropriate regard to national policy, including the National Planning Policy Framework and any evidence requirements set out in this. The Hove Station Neighbourhood Forum is abiding by the legal requirements and we are collecting appropriate, proportionate and up-to-date evidence to support our policies.

We’re also reaching out to the community to gather feedback through workshops and Have Your Say Days, and drawing on local research such as Brighton University’s recent study of the Hove station Area
