The Referendum on the Neighbourhood Plan, which took place on 6th May 2021, gave a terrific endorsement.
The Plan received 6,923 ‘yes’ votes with 1,020 voting ‘no’. Almost 7 to 1 in favour.
Approval of the Caterham, Chaldon & Whyteleafe Neighbourhood Plan gives it legal status and ensures that planning takes full account of local requirements. It gives protection from inappropriate development proposals and will ensure that a rigorous and transparent set of rules are applied to planning applications.
Once the Planning Policy Committee of Tandridge District Council agrees that the Plan is “made”, the Parish and Village Councils will establish a Reviewing and Monitoring Group, to ensure that the Plan’s policies are followed.
We would like to thank all of the volunteers that have worked on the Plan over many years. Their work has now come to fruition.
