Future Mole Valley Draft Local Plan Consultation: Impact on Bookham

Public Meeting Follow Up.

Thank you to everyone who came along to the Public Meetings on the 5th and 13th and the contributions to the discussions.

The key messages from the event were how unhappy residents are with the impact on:

  • Education

  • Roads

  • Drainage

  • Health

  • Retail

  • Ecology

We will be regularly updating this page with additional information for you to consider when completing the consultation. The Future Mole Valley Draft Local Plan is a complex piece of work and to help you steer you way through it the Resources section below has links, presentation and downloads for your use.  

The MVDC draft Local Plan consultation finishes on 23rd March 2020 and during this period you are strongly encouraged to participate in the consultation. You do not have to complete all of the consultation; you can submit just the areas you feel strongly about. In parallel the BRA will be making a consolidated submission to the process based on the key areas detailed above.

If you can help providing expertise to the BRA and other village groups which the BRA is working with such as the “I Live in Bookham” social media team, or want to keep in touch about the  impact that the MVDC draft Local Plan might have on our village and day to day lives in the future please sign up below. Thank you.
