The Council has received its first application from a local community to be allowed to prepare a Neighbourhood Development Plan.

The Tadworth Forum has applied to the Council to be designated as a Neighbourhood Forum, which would give it the powers to prepare a Neighbourhood Plan for the Tadworth Area. The Forum has also applied for land in Tadworth to be formally designated as the geographic area for which a future plan could be prepared.

Tell us your views

The Council is undertaking public consultation on whether the Tadworth Forum should be formally designated, enabling it to prepare a Neighbourhood Plan, and that the identified Plan area is appropriate.

Cath Rose, Planning Policy Team Leader, said "The first step in the Neighbourhood Planning process is to identify the area for the Plan, and establish a neighbourhood forum that is open to all who live and work in that area.

"We are inviting views from local residents in and around that Tadworth area about the applications from the Tadworth Forum."

Following this period of consultation, the Council will make a decision on whether to formally designate the Neighbourhood Area and Neighbourhood Forum for Tadworth.
