A Local Plan is the key document that sets out the priorities and the policies for development in a certain area. It shows the opportunities for development in the area and states what will and will not be permitted.
The existing Local Plan (which was called the Local Development Framework) was adopted by Epsom & Ewell Borough Council in 2007. It comprises three documents that have been produced by the council. These are:
- Epsom and Ewell Core Strategy (2007)
- Plan E (2011)
- Development Management Policies (2015)
The documents can be accessed here: Current Local Plan.
We are now preparing a new Local Plan to strengthen our borough's future, while also delivering new homes, jobs, improved transport and green spaces.
