Caterham, Chaldon & Whyteleafe Neighbourhood Plan

Planning the future of our four parishes

CCWNP UPDATE 17th February

We have been working hard during the last six weeks on providing the examiner with updated information on the local Green Spaces we have chosen  to preserve and also updating him on the Housing  consents that have been given in the in the Neighbourhood Plan area between 2015 and the end of 2019. The Examiner needs this information in advance of the Public Examination on the Plan, which will take place at the Soper Hall on March 10th.

I have still to hear what the agenda is for this meeting but will publicise this the moment I get it, hopefully this week. I do know, however, that the examiner has already visited the area to familiarise himself with the development situation. I hear from Tandridge that he is very pleased with all the work that has been going on which he says will make the examination much easier to conduct.

I would also like to thank all those who have been working hard during the last few weeks to satisfy the examiner’s requirements.

The ‘Submission Version’ of the Caterham, Chaldon and Whyteleafe Neighbourhood Plan is now available to view (see below)

    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.

     

    We are about to publish the ‘Submission Version’ of the Neighbourhood Plan. This will be delivered to Tandridge District Council, who will consult on it for approximately six weeks. It is important that you have a look at the document and give your views, even if it is simply to offer your support.

    Then, the Plan will be examined by an Independent Examiner. After that, there will be a local referendum, which will be open to everyone registered to vote in the Neighbourhood Plan area. If we achieve a majority of 51% or more, the Plan will be ‘made’ and will form part of the Local Plan, and will carry weight in determining planning policies.
