Effingham Neighbourhood Plan

Front PageProposal for a neighbourhood plan for Effingham

The Council designated the Effingham Neighbourhood Area (Effingham ward and parish) on 4 April 2013.

Effingham Parish Council has worked with the Effingham community and other stakeholders to produce the Effingham Neighbourhood Plan.

A neighbourhood plan is a document that contains planning policies for a single neighbourhood area. Adopted neighbourhood plans become part of the Development Plan for the borough and are used to determine planning applications within the neighbourhood area they cover, along with the Council's Local Plan and other considerations.


The neighbourhood plan and other submission documents can be found below under 'Consultation documents'. Printed copies of the document are available to view during the consultation period at the Council office main reception at Millmead and at the Guildford and Horsley libraries during usual opening hours.

Please respond to this consultation through the online comments form below. Alternatively, you can email or write to us using the details at the bottom of this page.

After the consultation we will publish your comment, but will not publish personal details such as your name and email or postal address. We will not accept anonymous comments.

Your comments will be provided to an independent examiner who will make recommendations about whether the plan should proceed to a referendum of residents, whether it should be amended first, or whether it should be refused.

The examiner will consider whether the neighbourhood plan meets the Basic Conditions and other relevant legal requirements, and whether the referendum area should be extended beyond the neighbourhood area (Effingham ward). Your comments should focus on these two points.

Your representation may include a request to be notified of the Council's decision on whether to adopt or refuse the proposed neighbourhood plan.
