Planning Matters ARCHIVE

Planning applications are one of the biggest causes of worry for local residents.  We have produced a Planning Guide to advise residents affected by a planning application (see panel, right).

Elmbridge Borough Council provide excellent online access to planning application information:  follow this link to Elmbridge Planning Services, then click on 'Search for planning application'

When a planning application is causing concern, residents should express their concerns in writing to the relevant planning authorities.  PP&DRA is also prepared to write to the town planners, and to discuss issues with the relevant officers and our local councillors.  You can view some example letters by clicking on the links below.
