Runnymede Local Plan 2035: Additional Sites and Options (ASO) Consultation

The Council is responsible for looking forward and setting the level of housing and employment provision that is needed in Runnymede up to the year 2035, as well as for devising a strategy which protects communities from flood risk and which safeguards valued landscapes. This task is an important one that has the potential to affect the lives of residents, visitors and workers in the Borough, both now and in the future.

The Council carried out its first consultation on the Local Plan in summer 2016. This was known as the Issues, Options and Preferred Approaches (IOPA) consultation. In light of the representations made during this consultation and following the collation of additional evidence, a further round of public consultation is now underway to give interested persons the opportunity to comment on the proposed amendments to the Council's strategy.

The Additional Sites and Options Consultation is open from Friday 12 May until Friday 23 June 2017. The consultation document can be viewed below and is also available to view in the following libraries: Addlestone, Bagshot, Chertsey, Egham, New Haw, Staines upon Thames, Virginia Water and West Byfleet.
