On 4 November Tandridge District Council (TDC) issued a second consultation exercise on its emerging Local Plan. This is an important document for our community as it will shape future development within our Parish.
Although TDC is specifically seeking views on those sites it has identified as having development potential in its ‘Sites Consultation’ (Regulation 18) document, a number of other reports have been published on which comments are also invited.
Many of these reports are quite complex and technical documents. So, Nutfield Parish Council is publishing its initial report on this consultation exercise to assist Parishioners wishing to make comments. Prior to the consultation deadline, we will also publish our full response to TDC in respect of their ‘Sites Consultation’.
TDC is required to take account of the views of those living and working in its District and at a later stage will be required to outline how the main issues arising from this and other consultations have been addressed. So, all responses are important in shaping the policies that will eventually appear in the draft Local Plan.
While the Parish Council will be making a response, it is important that as many Parishioners as possible make individual representations on any issues where they have concerns. Please note that petitions are only usually counted as a single response regardless of the number of signatures, so although it is a busy time of the year for everyone, writing an individual letter, however brief, holds more weight.
The last date for submitting your responses is 30 December 2016.
