Tandridge District Council Press Release 5.1.17
Council thanks residents for taking part in the Local Plan Sites Consultation
The Local Plan: Sites Consultation which gave residents an opportunity to comment on sites being assessed as part of the creation of a new Local Plan has now closed. The Council would like to thank all the residents that took part either by attending one of the eight drop in sessions held across the District or by submitting comments.
All the comments received are being processed and added to the consultation portal. The comments will be analysed and taken into account as the Council prepares the next version of the Local Plan. The analysed representations will be set out in a statement of consultation, which will be taken to a future Planning Policy Committee and available for the public to view.
The next step is the preparation of a draft Local Plan containing all the policies and proposals to shape the development of the District for the next 20 years. This draft Local Plan will be the subject of public consultation before it is submitted to an independent examiner.

Councillor Peter Bond, Chairman of the Planning Policy Committee, said: “Thank you to everyone who took part in the Local Plan Sites Consultation which ran for eight weeks. All your comments are now being reviewed and will be taken into account for the preparation of the next stage of the Local Plan. The final Local Plan will set out where homes, jobs, community facilities, shops and infrastructures can be delivered and identify the areas that need to be protected. We want to ensure we create an environment where people want to live, work or visit.”
