Application for the designation of a Neighbourhood Forum and Neighbourhood Area for Tadworth

The Tadworth Forum has applied to the Council to be designated as a Neighbourhood Forum, which would give it the powers to prepare a Neighbourhood Plan for the Tadworth Area. The Forum has also applied for land in Tadworth to be formally designated as the geographic area for which a future plan could be prepared.

The Council is undertaking public consultation on whether the Tadworth Forum should be formally designated, enabling it to prepare a Neighbourhood Plan, and that the identified Plan area is appropriate. Following this period of consultation, the Council will make a decision on whether to formally designate the Neighbourhood Area and Neighbourhood Forum for Tadworth.

Cath Rose, Planning Policy Team Leader said “The first step in the Neighbourhood Planning process is to identify the area for the Plan, and establish a neighbourhood forum that is open to all who live and work in that area. The Council is inviting views from local residents in and around that Tadworth area about the applications from the Tadworth Forum.”

The applications can be viewed online at www.reigate-banstead.gov.uk/TadworthNP.

Comments on the application documents must be submitted in writing by post or via email by 5pm on Tuesday 12 May 2015 to:
* Policy Team, Reigate & Banstead Borough Council, Town Hall, Castlefield Road, Reigate RH2 0SH; or
* LDF@reigate-banstead.gov.uk

A consultation questionnaire is available on the Council’s website or in hard copy on request by phoning 01737 276178.

If the Council agrees to designate the Tadworth Forum, no other organisation or body may be designated for the Tadworth area until that designation expires or is withdrawn.
