Caterham masterplan

We have adopted the Caterham Masterplan as a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD). The adopted SPD will help steer future development in a co-ordinated and planned way over the next 10 years. It will become part of the Local Development Plan (LDP) and used to help determine planning applications.

The adopted document reflects on the public consultation which ran from Monday 27 November 2017 to Monday 22 January.

A summary of the responses received during the consultation have been considered in drafting the adopted document. This is set out in the Statement of Community Involvement document which is published and available to view at
