Heads Up!

A very important consultation on our new Local Plan begins on Monday, 14 May.

The Council will be publishing an Issues and Option document at noon on Monday. The document will set out four Options that the Council may use in approaching the problem of building 590 new dwellings per annum, a target which the government has imposed on us. (The current housing target is 166 per annum.)

We will not go into details here right now, but we will make the Issues and Options document available here on Monday. We will be taking legal advice on this paper and will let you know our analysis as soon as we can.

The consultation period will last six weeks, ending on Monday 25 June. It is vital that you make your preferences known during this consultation. Submitting your views using a simple online process on the Spelthorne Council website will also automatically register you for further information and consultations as the Review of our Local Plan continues.

Various public consultation events will be held throughout the Borough during the consultation period. See below (click on the image for a better view), or go to https://www.spelthorne.gov.uk/localplan .
