The Seaford Neighbourhood Plan and supporting documents were first issued for comment in November/December 2017. The proposals were strongly supported by the vast majority of the public and statutory consultees (such as the South Downs National Park Authority and Lewes District Council’s Planners). However, there was some criticism of the Sustainability Review. Comments from the public on the Plan, as well as from statutory consultees, were taken into account in drafting a revised Plan for a second consultation which took place in November/December 2018.

The responses to the second consultation have been used to revise the Plan further – see Consultation Statement below.
