Epsom Town Centre Masterplan

The Epsom Town Centre Masterplan is being drawn up to provide a vision for the Town Centre that will drive investment decisions to ensure that Epsom continues to thrive as a place to live, work and visit.

The masterplan will guide how the town centre can change over the next 15 to 20 years, to respond to the changes in how we live, socialise, shop, work and become more sustainable. 

Informed by robust evidence and wide community engagement, the masterplan will provide a long-term vision of what Epsom Town could look like by 2040 and beyond by working with residents and key stakeholders.

Early engagement was undertaken between 25 July to 31 August 2022 to inform the Masterplan for Epsom town centre.
