Reasons to be Cheerful #1

The draft Local Plan has been published, and Kempton Park is excluded as an area for development.

The twelve week final public consultation began last Wednesday, and will run until 5 September.

All the Local Plan documents can be viewed at:

The Local Plan itself is at:

Draft Local Plan 2022 – 2037

Kempton Park is only mentioned in passing in the above document, because it is not scheduled for development. That is because it was rated as well-performing Green Belt in two Green Belt Assessments, which can be viewed here:

We are going through all these documents in depth, and will get back to you with what we find.

You will have plenty of time to submit your thoughts on the draft Local Plan, and it is very important that you do.

If you would like to hear more, Ann Biggs, the Spelthorne Strategic Planning Officer, will be giving a presentation at the LOSRA AGM at 8pm on Wednesday 22 June.
