The South East Plan
On 28 February 2013 the Secretary of State laid in Parliament a statutory instrument to partially revoke the Regional Strategy for the South East (modified to retain Policy NRM6: Thames Basin Heaths Special Protection Area), which came into force on 25 March 2013.
(A policy relating to the former Upper Heyford Air Base in Oxfordshire saved from the Oxfordshire Structure Plan was also retained.)

- The South East (Partial Revocation) Order 2013.

- Earlier Environmental report on the revocation of the South East Plan.
The Secretary of State published the final version of the South East Plan (also known as the Regional Spatial Strategy for the South East) on 6 May 2009. This replaced the Regional Planning Guidance for the South East (RPG9). The South East Plan is available for download from The National Archives website.
