The following welcome email has been received from the Council:
Spelthorne Council has extended its public consultation on a new Local Plan for the Borough, which sets out proposals for where housing, employment and other development will be built up to 2035. The original consultation period already exceeded the statutory minimum 6 weeks to take account of the Christmas break. However, the General Election wasn't originally expected and therefore we've again extended the period within which local residents can respond.
The consultation will now run until Tuesday 21 January 2020 and gives another two weeks for residents to give their views on the proposed allocations and policies.
A Council spokesperson said: "Effective consultation and engagement with the local community is vital in the preparation of a new Local Plan, which will affect all our residents. We've already had a large response but we recognise that the elections are some people's priority at the moment. Extending the consultation gives us more opportunity to arrange further public presentations if needed in the New Year to ensure everyone is fully informed and can have their say."
- The Local Plan consultation opened on Tuesday 5 November 2019 and now runs up to Tuesday 21 January 2020
- Three more public information dates have been added to provide further information to residents on the Local Plan for Spelthorne; Tuesday 10 & 17 December at 7pm and Monday 16 December at 2pm. Book now for your place here
