Draft Settlement Investment and Development (ID) Plans-Esher

What will Settlement ID Plans do?

1.19 The Settlement ID Plans have 3 distinct roles;

  1. Protecting sites in their current use –these are designated to ensure that they are not lost to other uses.
  2. Identifying key sites for new development – these are allocated and will act as a framework within which the Council can plan and manage growth in the future
  3. Assessing infrastructure needs- these will need to be prioritised in line with the delivery of new development in an area, together with an assessment of its impact and the aspirations of the local community.

1.20 Each ID Plan will differ dependant on its local character, the capacity of existing infrastructure to accommodate growth and the opportunities available for new development and environmental enhancement.
