Caterham, Chaldon & Whyteleafe Neighbourhood Plan

Planning the future of our four parishes

Neighbourhood Plan passed by Tandridge District Council on 24th September

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.

About the Neighbourhood Plan

The Neighbourhood Plan is an important document, created from an evidence base that will be used to determine planning applications within Caterham, Chaldon and Whyteleafe (view map).  It will be formally examined and subject to a local referendum, which, if successful means that it will sit alongside the Tandridge Local Plan offering detail relevant to our area.

The Plan has been developed over many years by a Steering Group comprising volunteers from the four Parish and Village Councils (Caterham Hill, Caterham Valley, Chaldon and Whyteleafe).  These volunteers have worked over a period of eight years undertaking research and accumulating evidence, which has been distilled into the current version of the neighbourhood plan. 

Importantly, the Neighbourhood Plan provides a tool for us to protect the special character and green spaces that we have. It will also enable us to receive 25% of developer contributions (Community Infrastructure Levy) coming from development in our area. This money can be put towards community projects.
