The draft Local Plan
Developing a sustainable and thriving Elmbridge is at the very heart of the draft Local Plan presented to our residents in 2022. We want the borough to be a great place to live and work. The Plan sets out a vision for a digital Elmbridge; one where we will provide the right homes in the right places for our residents, become a hub for an agile workforce, offering flexible workspace, fast connections, accessible transport options and welcoming hospitality.
The level of detail, of investigation, of collaboration, of consultation and of sheer hard work, that goes into a Local Plan cannot be underestimated. The Planning Team has lived and breathed this Plan for years and their journey is not over yet.
Kim Tagliarini, Head of Planning and Environmental Health, is rightly proud of her team’s dedication to the Elmbridge community:
“No group is more committed to the Local Plan in Elmbridge than the Planning Policy and Strategy team. They want to support Elmbridge residents and businesses; they want to ensure a thriving and sustainable future for the borough. To do this, they have scrutinised evidence, drafted and redrafted, asked the difficult questions, come together to test findings and they have supported each other when the journey seemed long and insurmountable.”
The Elmbridge draft Local Plan has been developed with the needs of residents and businesses at its heart. It is a Plan that will help secure a thriving and sustainable future for Elmbridge. Providing the highest quality environment for people to live. We believe this Plan will support our residents as their lives continue to evolve post COVID pandemic, it will support our businesses as they strive for success and it will support an agile workforce seeking more and more to balance work and play.
