Mole Valley Spatial Strategy – time for a rethink?

The Mole Valley District Council (MVDC) Local plan identifies sites in Ashtead and elsewhere in the district for the development of housing, health facilities, leisure, cultural facilities, new public open space, early years’ education, business, and commerce.

With 90% of MVDC land categorized Green Belt or Countryside the result could be further intensification of construction within Ashtead if the current Spatial Strategy is maintained.

The Inspector will examine the plan in detail and will be holding public hearings, probably in June. When satisfied, the Inspector will produce a report and, if the Inspector’s findings are satisfactory, the Council will formally adopt the plan. More here
