Our consultation process

Consulting with residents is a key part of how we prepare our planning policies and is required by  national policy. The way we consult on planning policy is set out in the adopted Statement of Community Involvement (2020)

Residents who want to give their thoughts on the Local Plan or upcoming Neighbourhood Plans will need to register their details online.  A Guide to registering has been prepared to help you. You can also register by e-mailing, or by writing to Planning Policy, Council Offices, 8 Station Road East, Oxted RH8 0BT.

When you register your details, an account will be created and you’ll receive an e-mail confirmation. It’s important you keep this e-mail or make a note of your username and password, as you’ll need it to submit your views in future. When setting up your account, if you don’t receive an e-mail confirmation, please check your spam folders or get in touch. Anyone who has previously commented on our policies preparation or the Local Plan should already have an account or will have had one created for them.

Your name will be published against any comments you make and anonymous comments cannot be accepted.

Any questions relating to consultation or registering for notifications can be directed to the Planning Policy Team using our contact us form.
