The Neighbourhood Plan : Over to you

After three years of development, Effingham’s Neighbourhood Plan has reached its crucial ‘Pre Submission Consultation’ stage. The Parish Council is seeking formal comments from residents and other consultees, before the Plan is submitted to Guildford Borough Council. The Plan is the result of extensive engagement with residents, and other interested parties, through public events, surveys, and workshops. It is the Plan that the Effingham Neighbourhood Plan Advisory Group (ENPAG) believes best meets the views and aspirations of our community.
The specific purpose of the Neighbourhood Plan is to set planning policies for the parish that will help shape and determine planning decisions in Effingham, including the number and type of new homes, where those homes are built, the protection of our Green Belt countryside and landscape, and design principles to preserve the character of the village and wider parish.

We will be delivering survey forms to all households in the parish over the next two weeks. Residents and interested parties can also comment upon the plan by using the comment form below or by downloading the survey by clicking on the link. Completed surveys can be returned to the Parish Clerk at :
