Draft Surrey Heath Local Plan: Preferred Options (2019 - 2038) Additional Site Allocations for Gypsy and Travellers and Travelling Showpeople Regulation 18 Consultation

SHBC Doc Title

Surrey Heath Borough Council is in the process of preparing a new Local Plan. The Draft Surrey Heath Local Plan: Preferred Options (2019 – 2038) sets out the Council's preferred approach to development in the Borough up to 2038. 

As part of the plan-making process, the Council is required to address the needs of groups with specific housing requirements; this includes making provision for Gypsy and Traveller and Travelling Showpeople sites within the Local Plan, through the provision of pitches and plots. 

This consultation sets out a series of additional proposed site allocation options for Gypsy and Traveller and Travelling Showpeople accommodation. 

You are welcome to comment on every proposed site allocation option, or you may choose to only respond to certain options. You may also use Question 1 to provide general comments not specifically related to the identified site allocation options, or to suggest alternative sites that the Council could consider allocating for Gypsy and Traveller and Travelling Showpeople accommodation.

Consultation

The consultation is open for response from 12:00 midday on Monday 8th August to 12:00 midday on Monday 19th September 2022.

The Draft Surrey Heath Local Plan: Preferred Options (2019 - 2038) Additional Site Allocations for Gypsy and Traveller and Travelling Showpeople (Regulation 18) document can be found under 'Consultation Documents' below.

The documents that provide evidence for the Draft Local Plan can be found here: https://surreyheath.gov.uk/residents/planning/planning-policy/development-plan/evidence-base

The Online Comment Form below includes 5 questions which seek to obtain your views on each proposed site allocation.

What happens next?

Your comments will be considered as part of the process of preparing the next version of the Local Plan, known as the ‘Pre-Submission’ or ‘Regulation 19’ version. This will be subject to further consultation in early 2023, prior to the Local Plan being submitted for independent examination. We are keen for local people to tell us their views and we would therefore encourage you to get involved and have your say on the additional proposed site allocations.

All comments submitted during this consultation will be considered as part of the process of preparing the Regulation 19 version of the Surrey Heath Local Plan. We will also publish an Interim Consultation Statement as part of the preparation for the Regulation 19 Plan identifying the main issues raised and our response to these.
