Burstow Parish Council is in the process of developing a Neighbourhood Plan for Smallfield and the wider Parish.
A Neighbourhood Plan is a document that contains planning policies that will be used to guide how we want our parish to develop over the next 15 to 20 years.
The Plan is our chance to have a real say in what happens in Burstow in the future.
At the moment, planning applications in Burstow are decided upon by members of the Tandridge District Council Planning Committee, who are guided by the policies contained in the Tandridge Local Plan. The Burstow Neighbourhood Plan will include much more local detail to help make decisions that benefit the parish.
Tandridge current Local Plan was adopted in 2008 and is therefore quite dated. The District Council is writing a new Local Plan and you can see the draft here. Our Neighbourhood Plan will sit alongside the Local Plan and both will be used to determine planning applications.
