The Caterham, Chaldon and Whyteleafe Neighbourhood Plan (NP) was passed by the Planning Policy Committee of Tandridge District Council on 24th September and will be given significant weight in all local planning decisions from now on-meaning that Planning Officers will need to take account NP policies in making planning decisions. The NP will be subject to a Public Referendum when Government Regulations allow-hopefully next Spring.
