The Elmbridge Draft Local Plan: Regulation 19 Representation

The Elmbridge Draft Local Plan: Regulation 19 Representation

Thank you to all of those who responded.

Update 1 November 2022

Work is continuing on the new Local Plan for Elmbridge. We had hundreds of responses to our Regulation 19 representation over the summer and had hoped to be ready to report back to Councillors at the November at Cabinet and Council meetings but we simply need a bit more time. We are still within our Local Plan timetable and hope to update residents soon.

Update 1 August 2022

Thank you to all those who submitted a Regulation 19 representation on Elmbridge’s draft Local Plan.

The next stage in the process is as follows:

  • We will spend the summer collating, analysing and reviewing the responses
  • The findings of the representations will be presented to Elmbridge Councillors for discussion in the autumn
  • All being well, the draft Local Plan will be submitted to the Planning Inspector, along with the representations and any proposed modifications before the end of 2022

Friday 17 June: Our Local Plan journey continues with the Regulation 19 representation. This is your chance to show your support for:

  • Protecting and enhancing the character of Elmbridge
  • Helping us to live more sustainably
  • Thriving high streets and parades

This is your chance to support a sustainable and thriving Elmbridge through the draft Local Plan.

Starting Friday 17 June and running for 6 weeks until 29 July 2022, you can let the National Planning Inspectorate know your views on whether the Elmbridge Draft Local Plan is legally compliant and sound.

We have had numerous consultations through the last six years, asking about specific sites, specific development, green belt use etc, but Regulation 19 is different:

  • This is the last stage of public engagement before submitting the Draft Plan to the Planning Inspectorate for examination.
  • This is a consultation on the proposed draft Local Plan policies; earlier consultations sought views on different options and issues which had to be considered before the council finalised this draft Local Plan.
  • All responses will be sent to the Planning Inspectorate in the autumn with the draft Local Plan and the evidence base documents
  • Only comments on the soundness and legal compliance of the Plan can be made and it must be targeted to a specific policy or paragraph in the Draft Plan

The Planning Inspector will weigh up the views put forward, and from experience we know that a draft Local Plan which is supported by its community as providing a framework for the future which reflects their aspirations and priorities is more likely to succeed. You can play your part. If you want to know more about how the Inspector assesses soundness, this explanation document can help.

To support you with the process a full questions and answers set on the Regulation 19 representation is available on our website and you can watch this short video on the Regulation 19 representation.



Thank you for your support.

Cllr Karen Randolph, Portfolio Holder for Planning and Environmental Health
