The initial consultation on the draft Local Plan for Tandridge closes on 26 February 2016. Anyone with an interest in the area has four weeks left to give their views to the District Council on various possible approaches to how the area is improved, developed and protected.
The final agreed Local Plan will set out the vision for the district for the next 20 years and provide a framework for the future improvement, development and local protection of the area and Green Belt. The Council knows how important the openness of the district is to residents and is committed to protecting its green spaces in the long term.
The Council is asking for views on:
§ Affordable local housing.
§ The number of schools, doctors and type of transport needed in future.
§ The local environment, its greenness and openness.
§ How the area’s needs are met over the next 20 years.
§ The availability of business premises and local workforce.
§ Any other challenges facing the district.
§ Will not change the protection of the Green Belt or put the Green Belt at additional risk.
§ Will not set where new building will take place nor how much there will be.
§ Will not change current planning rules.
§ Will not change the boundaries of our towns and villages.
David Weightman, Chairman of the Planning Policy Committee said: “Please help shape our area’s future. If you have an interest in Tandridge it’s important you take part in our consultation running until 26 February.”
