Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Strategy Consultation

The Council is required to conduct a review of the nature and extent of homelessness in the borough every five years and to develop and publish a Homelessness & Rough sleeping Strategy, setting out how the Council intends to tackle and prevent homelessness.

We are now consulting on our draft Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Strategy and the associated Action Plan. The strategy and action plan outlines our strategic vision and the six key objectives we aim to achieve when addressing homelessness within the borough. It sets out our commitment to preventing homelessness at an earlier stage and how we will work with our partners across all sectors to develop an integrated approach to tackling homelessness and rough sleeping.

The strategy will be open for consultation for 6 weeks from 12 July to 23 August 2022, and we would welcome your views. Through this consultation we will use your comments to help us to refine the strategy and action plan.

Full details of this consultation and the draft Homelessness Review, Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Strategy and the Action plan can be viewed below.

Previous consultations

Local Government Boundary Commission for England public consultation

New boundaries were being proposed for council wards in Epsom and Ewell Borough Council.

The Local Government Boundary Commission wanted to hear what residents and local organisations thought about the proposals. A 10-week public consultation ran from 5 October until 13 December 2021. Thank you to everyone that took part in this consultation. 

The Commission has published reports on a dedicated section on its website(link is external) where people can see further details.

Horton Cemetery local listing

This consultation ended on 31 August 2021 - thank you for all the views expressed. Your input will form part of a report that will be submitted to the Licensing and Planning Policy Committee in September. We were asking for the local community’s opinions (and the reasons for these views) on whether Horton Cemetery should be added to the council's local list of buildings, monuments and landscapes which have historical or architectural interest.  Local listing is a concept that is designed to ensure that the historic and architectural interest of buildings, etc that are of local importance, but do not meet the criteria for being nationally listed, are taken account of during the planning process.

Building Control Service - Best Value Consultation

This consultation ended on 29 August 2021 - many thanks if you expressed your views. A report is now being prepared for councillors which will be discussed at a forthcoming committee meeting. Building Control is a statutory service that aims to ensure the safety of buildings and the people who use them. Local authorities are also required to provide an ‘at cost’ (non-profit making) building regulation service. Due to significant challenges in continuing to deliver the service as currently provided, the Council was consulting on the preferred approach to future service delivery.
