Your Limpsfield, Your Future.
The Limpsfield Neighbourhood Plan (NP) is the community of Limpsfield’s opportunity to have a say on how Limpsfield should change over the next 20 years. It essentially looks at what Limpsfield currently has in terms of assets and attributes, services and amenities, infrastructure and planning guidelines for development of the neighbourhood and protection of its green spaces.
The NP, once submitted and approved, is due to come into effect in November 2017.
Since Limpsfield was granted Neighbourhood status, we are now able to draw up our own Neighbourhood Plan to submit to Tandridge Council.
The process includes public consultation, a referendum of all Limpsfield residents and a review by an independent Government Inspector. Once the contents of the plan have been signed off, the Limpsfield Neighbourhood Plan will become a legally binding document that has to be taken into account by Tandridge District Council and Government Planning Inspectors when approving future changes or development in Limpsfield.
The Limpsfield Neighbourhood Plan will influence local planning as to the character, concentration and location of any new houses; the protection of green spaces and Green Belt; the need for further infrastructure and certain public services.
Limpsfield Needs YOU! Yes it’s your future so if you want to have a say, apart from filling in suggestions forms and surveys or going to NP meetings, why not get involved with one of the Topic Groups? If you’re interested please contact the clerk, Geoff Dessent, firstname.lastname@example.org.
