Draft Plan now available to view

Effingham Parish Council is pleased to announce that the draft Neighbourhood Development Plan for Effingham is now available for residents to view and pass comment upon. A formal public meeting is planned for this coming weekend (see prior post), when the plan will be presented by the council who will take questions from residents.

Following feedback from residents the plan will be redrafted to accommodate views expressed before a village wide consultation takes place via a survey to be delivered to all residents asking for feedback. Following the results of the survey, the final plan will be redrafted for a formal ‘Regulation 14’ submission to Guildford Borough Council. This represents the first formal stage of submission of the plan.

Prior to this stage the plan will also be assessed by an Independent Inspector to ensure that it meets all regulatory requirements ahead of a formal submission.

This is an exciting stage in the development of the Plan and Effingham Parish Council wish to thank all residents and community groups for their considerable efforts in supporting development of the plan policies, and making the plan possible. We hope to see as many residents as is possible at one of the two meetings this coming weekend.

Copies of the plan (including supporting appendices and village design statement) are available by clicking on the links below:
