What is this consultation about?

This consultation is to seek views on 5 options for meeting the borough’s housing need as part of the preparation of a new Local Plan to replace the Core Strategy.

Where can I find more information?

This consultation webpage includes the consultation document and all the supporting documents in the consultation library below.

Please see the Interactive Map to view the 5 Options.

A hard copy version of the consultation document is also available to view at the Civic Centre and the borough's local libraries. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide hard copies to take way at reception but you can print out the document from the library below.

Understanding the evidence

We have produced a useful summary paper to help assist with understanding how the technical documents have informed the options. Please see the evidence base to inform the Local Plan webpage which includes all the technical documents.

If you would like to read any of the evidence base documents in hard copy you will need to book an appointment at the Civic Centre. Please e-mail localplan@elmbridge.gov.uk to request this.
