Surrey Heath Borough Council has announced a string of public exhibitions where people can examine its recent site allocations plan, which sets out in detail a long-term vision for the borough through to 2028. The council is beginning the process of deciding where new sites for housing, employment, retail, transport and green spaces should be. Around 340 pockets of land across the borough have been raised as potential sites for allocation.
Residents and businesses are invited to study the plans in greater detail at any one of seven public exhibitions to be held between Tuesday (April 23) and May 15. Visitors will be able to view the potential sites, discuss any views or concerns they have with members of the council’s planning team and leave their comments. The majority of exhibitions will be open until 8pm, which the council hopes will give as many people as possible the chance to have their say.
Councillor Keith Bush, portfolio holder for planning, said: “These exhibitions are an important opportunity for people to have their say on the future of the area they live in. We want to hear from as many people as possible, including local residents and businesses on what they think of the sites suggested.”
The first exhibition will take place at St John’s Link, Church Road, Windlesham, on Tuesday, and is followed on Friday April 26 by one at Brook Church Hall, The Square, Bagshot. Camberley’s Adult Education Centre in France Hill Drive will host an exhibition on Monday April 29 before the proposals go on display at the Chobham Parish Pavilion Recreation Ground, in Station Road. There will be a display on May 11 at Frimley Community Centre, Balmoral Drive, while people in Frimley Green, Mytchett and Deepcut can view the plans at the Frimley Green Methodist Church Hall on May 13. The consultation concludes at the West End Sports Pavilion, Benner Lane, on May 15.
All exhibitions take place between 12.30pm and 8pm, with the exception of the one in Frimley, which will be between 10am and 2.30pm.”
