1. Evidence and research

Information about the evidence which the Council uses to develop planning policies.

National policy requires that our planning policies are based on an up-to-date understanding about the economic, social and environmental characteristics and prospects for the area.

The evidence below is a collection of documents and reports which are used to inform development of our emerging policies. It has been divided into individual topics to provide an easily accessible resource.

  • Housing
  • Economic development and employment
  • Infrastructure and transport
  • Retail, leisure and town centres (including. Redhill town centre)
  • Landscape, townscape and the natural environment
  • Flooding
  • Sustainability Appraisal (SA) and Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA)
  • Habitats Regulation Assessment (HRA)

The Council also carries out regular plan monitoring which also feeds into the plan-making process. More information about the type of information we collect is available on the Plan Monitoring page.
