Site Allocations DPD consultation deadline extended

Date: 

Monday, 16 November, 2020

Due to the recent national Covid-19 lockdown and, associated restrictions that came into force from 5 November 2020, the deadline to comment on the proposed main modifications to the Site Allocations Development Plan Document (DPD) has been extended.

The consultation will now close at 5pm on Monday 14 December 2020.

The Site Allocations DPD is an important document that the Council has committed to prepare to enable the delivery of its Core Strategy, which was adopted in October 2012. The document identifies urban and Green Belt sites for future housing, employment and infrastructure within the Borough, to ensure we meet our future development requirements.

The Site Allocations DPD was submitted to the Planning Inspectorate during July 2019, following a comprehensive consultation process. Subsequently, a series of public examination hearings were held in December 2019 to determine whether the Site Allocations DPD was ‘sound’ and legally compliant.

At the request of the Inspector, the Council is now consulting on the main modifications to the DPD that might be necessary to make it ‘sound’ and legally compliant. The outcome of the consultation will be taken into account before the Inspector submits his report to Council.

An online Zoom video session will be held on Thursday 3 December 2020 at 4pm where officers will answer questions. Call 01483 743871 or email planning.policy@woking.gov.uk to register your interest.

View the proposed main modifications and have your say.

All responses must be submitted by 5pm, Monday 14 December 2020.

Residents wishing to submit their feedback by email to planning.policy@woking.gov.uk or in writing to Planning Policy Team, Woking Borough Council, Civic Offices, Gloucester Square, Woking GU21 6YL.

Residents that require a paper copy or a USB stick containing the relevant documents should email planning.policy@woking.gov.uk
