Last chance to have your say on development sites

Date: 

Monday, 9 November, 2020

Local residents who wish to comment on the proposed main modifications to the Site Allocations Development Plan Document (DPD) must do so by Monday 16 November.

The Site Allocations DPD is an important document that the Council has committed to prepare to enable the delivery of its Core Strategy, which was adopted in October 2012. The document identifies urban and Green Belt sites for future housing, employment and infrastructure within the Borough, to ensure we meet our future development requirements.

The Site Allocations DPD was submitted to the Planning Inspectorate during July 2019, following a comprehensive consultation process. Subsequently, a series of public examination hearings were held in December 2019 to determine whether the Site Allocations DPD was ‘sound’ and legally compliant.

At the request of the Inspector, the Council is now consulting on the main modifications to the DPD that might be necessary to make it ‘sound’ and legally compliant. The outcome of the consultation will be taken into account before the Inspector submits his report to Council.

To view the proposed main modifications and have your say, please visit www.woking2027.info/allocations/sadpdexam/mmconsultation

All responses must be submitted by 5pm, Monday 16 November 2020.

Residents that require a paper copy or a USB stick of documents, or further information should contact Woking Borough Council’s Planning Policy Team on 01483 743871 or email planning.policy@woking.gov.uk
