The review of the Runnymede 2030 Local Plan commenced in January 2021 but was paused in September 2022 due to uncertainty at a national level because of the proposed planning reforms.
A meeting of the Council’s Planning Committee on 28 June 2023, revisited the pause to the Local Plan Review and a high-level timetable for resuming work on the Local Plan, based around three potential options were discussed. Members elected to proceed with the option for preparing a plan under the new plan-making arrangements (expected to commence at the end of 2024).

A further update on the government’s planning reforms was provided at the meeting of the Council’s Planning Committee on 25, October 2023. This included providing information about a further consultation paper, produced by the Government in July 2023, on the Levelling Up and Regeneration Bill and its plan making reforms, and setting out a high-level picture of the current and future workstreams of the Planning Policy team up until the new plan making system was expected to commence in late 2024.

At the time that this report was considered by the Planning Committee the revised NPPF had not been published. However, since then (on 26 October) the Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill gained Royal Assent and is now an Act. The Government have said that the publication of the updated NPPF should now take place.
