(3 votes)

The following news release has just been circulated by Spelthorne Council and announces to all residents the opportunity to have their say on the first stage of the New Local Plan’s preparation:

From Monday 14 May, Spelthorne Borough Council is consulting on a new Local Plan which will set out how much development is needed in the borough for the next 15 years and where it should go. The finished Local Plan will contain policies for deciding planning applications and allocated sites for housing, employment and other forms of development. 

The Council is at the first stage of preparing the new Local Plan, known as Issues and Options. The consultation paper sets out the key issues affecting Spelthorne to 2035 and the options the Council will consider in order to meet the borough’s needs. It will identify the challenges and constraints for development but also the opportunities Spelthorne offers for growth. 

Presentations are being held on 21 and 24 May and there are also a number of information events where residents can talk informally to staff:

Whether you are a resident, worker or business owner in Spelthorne, the Council wants you to have a say in shaping your Local Plan. The consultation document will be available from 12 noon on Monday 14 May. You can read it and respond online at www.spelthorne.gov.uk/localplan

Alternatively, email your comments to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or write to Strategic Planning, Spelthorne Borough Council, Knowle Green, Staines-upon-Thames, TW18 1XB.

After this consultation, the Council will draft the new Local Plan before carrying out further consultation later this year. The Plan will then be submitted to the Secretary of State for examination by an independent inspector who will confirm if it can be recommended for adoption. We expect this process to be completed by September 2020.
