Tandridge Local Plan update
The impact of the proposed Garden Village upon Junction 6 of the M25 emerged as a sticking point in Tandridge District Council’s draft local plan. The council’s bid for Government infrastructure money had been turned down. The upshot is that Tandridge District Council are conducting a transport modelling study of the impact on Junction 6.
The Government Inspector assigned to examine the draft plan identified the potential for Junction 6 congestion and was not convinced that the Garden Village would meet Tandridge’s housing land supply adequately. He has set out two options: withdraw the draft plan and start again or undertake very extensive work to put the existing draft plan right. The Tandridge Planning Committee will be considering these options. Please read the official communication here.
