Ockley: a historic village in Surrey close to the Sussex Border
By now many people will have picked up the fact that Mole Valley is consulting on its Local Plan from 3 February to 23 March 2020. It is very important that as many people as possible take part in this consultation. This draft Local Plan (called 'Future Mole Valley') sets out how development in Mole Valley will be planned over the next 15 years and identifies locations for new homes and other development, whilst continuing to protect the countryside. You will shortly be receiving communications from Mole Valley through the post. You can also find out a lot about it at: www.futuremolevalley.org
Mole Valley have emphasised that this is a genuine consultation and they are extremely keen to have feedback from the community. Mole Valley are organising a roadshow in Ockley on 21 February 2020 at the Village Hall, 3 to 7 pm at which their staff will be on hand to answer questions.
Parish councillors will also be there to help. You are also welcome to attend the parish council meeting on 2 March 2020 when the subject will be on the agenda.
Meanwhile if you have any questions please do make contact with parish councillors – they will be only too pleased to help if they can:
Dick Thomas, Jo Page, Amanda Barclay, Simon Figg, Lucy Hogarth, James Lee-Steere, Barry Thorne
or contact us through the parish council website.
