**** Woldingham Neighbourhood Plan: Consultation on Minimum Plot Size and Downsizing ****

Dear Residents,

 

The Parish Council has been working on the Woldingham Neighbourhood Plan. Once in place it will help shape the development of Woldingham over the next fifteen years. Last year we carried out a Residents' Survey. It helped to confirm a number of policy areas which residents wished to be given priority in the Plan. We are now seeking your further views on two of the policies in the Plan: a policy on minimum plot size for dwellings and a policy on smaller accommodation units for downsizing.We warmly welcome your participation in this consultation. We would be grateful if you could also encourage other residents to complete the consultation by post (you should receive your consultation booklet by post shortly) or online at Woldingham Neighbourhood Plan or surveymonkey.com/.

 

THE REPLY DEADLINE BY FREEPOST OR ONLINE IS 31st JANUARY 2015.

 

With best wishes

 

Frank Myers,

Chairman of Woldingham Parish Council

Chairman of Woldingham Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group

EXTENDING PERMITTED DEVELOPMENT RIGHTS CONSULTATION - YOUR PARISH COUNCIL RESPONSE

The Government has been consulting on various relaxations of the Permitted Development regulations that would allow the construction of home extensions measuring up to double the current size limits. Extensions of up to 8 metres would be allowed without the need to get planning permission - or even tell the neighbours! The Parish Council finds this unacceptable. For some time we have been campaigning for removal of anomalies in the current regulations and for their disapplication to the Green Belt. The new proposals would greatly increase the threat to the Green Belt around Woldingham. They would also be a big potential threat to the character of the urban part of the village. The claimed economic benefit has been widely challenged. We have issued leaflets encouraging residents to lodge objections to the DCLG online consultation by the response deadline of 24th December and/or to write as soon as possible to Sam Gymah MP, at the House of Commons. Please feel free to quote our arguments if you wish.

PLANNING

Reviewing planning applications is one of our major activities. To help preserve the character of the Village the Parish Council produced a Village Design Statement (VDS) that has been adopted by Tandridge District Council. Compliance with it ensures that our village maintains its unique desirable character, non-compliance is likely to lead to a failed planning application.
