This is the first time Mole Valley District Council (MVDC) has submitted a Local Plan in almost a quarter of a century and the first time it has submitted any planning document in a decade.
The plan sets out a strategy for where development will be located in Mole Valley over the next 15 years. It includes policies for combatting the climate emergency, delivering affordable and senior residents’ housing, supporting the economy and defending Mole Valley’s Green Belt, heritage, landscape and biodiversity. It also identifies 63 site allocations for the development of housing, health facilities, leisure, cultural facilities, new public open space, early years’ education, business and commerce.
