The next stage of the Neighbourhood Development Plan has now started, which is to pull together all the information received into a Draft Plan. This will take approximately two months, though there is not a fixed schedule.
The Draft plan will review of each of the 3 wards individually and the Parish as whole taking into account the architecture, landscape, transport etc, as well as the sites that may be considered for development along with your views and comments. We have commissioned both a landscape assessment and a housing needs survey (which you will receive by post). The aim is to provide a picture of where we are now and what can be done to improve the Parish and keep it both sustainable and a desirable place to live and work in.
This is only a brief guide to the content but every every household will receive a full copy of the draft plan later in the year to give you a chance to review and comment on it (the six week public consultation period) before it goes to Mole Valley District Council for their thoughts (a further minimum of six weeks) then a planning Inspector to check content and process before eventually being adopted or rejected in the Public Referendum.
