Local Plan Garden Villages Consultation

The Local Plan: Garden Villages Consultation will run from Monday 14 August to 5pm on Monday 9 October. This consultation is an opportunity for residents and other stakeholders to have their say on the location of a garden village development which forms part of the preferred strategy the Council is pursuing in preparing the Local Plan.

A garden village will deliver a number of key objectives:

  • Provide much needed homes for local people.
  • Protect the Green Belt by preventing a scattergun approach to development.
  • Enable the delivery of proper infrastructure to support homes in the district, including schools, a health care facilities, a supermarket and investment in roads.
  • Prevent over development of built up areas.

The locations the Council is seeking views on are:

  • Blindley Heath
  • Edenbridge, Land west of Edenbridge
  • Redhill Aerodrome
  • South Godstone
