The policy team is working on the production of a number of Local Plan documents. Once adopted these will form part of the Development Plan for the borough. Documents are produced in accordance with Government Regulations. Emerging policy documents are a material consideration in the determination of planning applications. The amount of 'weight' given to a document depends on how developed it is.

What is the Local Plan?
|A local plan sets out local planning policies and identifies how land is used, determining what will be built where. Adopted local plans provide the framework for development across England. Our planning policies are contained within the Core Strategy and the Development Management Policies Document|

Consultation on our new planning document - Your involvement in Planning
We adopted our Statement of Community Involvement in 2006. Over the last 10 years there has been considerable change to planning legislation, the use of social media and electronic communication. It is therefore timely to update the document, its requirements and procedures.
Our new document is called Your involvement in Planning and aims to set out how you can become involved in both the planning policy and development management (planning applications) processes.
We would welcome any comments that you may have on this document. Please email them to LDF@epsom-ewell.gov.uk by 5 pm on 28 October 2016.
