Draft Caterham Masterplan Consultation – your chance to help shape the town’s future

At 9am on Monday 27 November an eight week consultation about the Draft Caterham Town Masterplan Supplementary Planning Document will start. The consultation runs until 5pm on Monday 22 January 2018 and will help establish guidelines to help shape and deliver an ambitious regeneration plan for Caterham town centre and Caterham on the Hill over the next ten years.

The document and a feedback form will be available to view at www.caterham-masterplan.org.uk. Hard copies will also be available in every library in the district and at the Council Offices in Oxted. There will also be a number of exhibition events where councillors, council officers and representatives from Nexus, the planning and regeneration consultancy, will be on hand to guide residents and businesses through the plans and answer any questions. These drop-in events are open to everyone.

Venue Date Times
Unit 18, Church Walk Shopping Centre, Station Avenue, Caterham CR3 6RT  Thursday 14 December 10am to 7pm
Caterham Hill Library, Westway, Caterham CR3 5TP  Friday 12 January  2pm to 6.30pm
Caterham Hill Library, Westway, Caterham CR3 5TP  Saturday 13 January

Comments received during the consultation will be reviewed and any necessary changes made before the final version of the Caterham Masterplan is adopted by the Council.

Councillor Peter Bond, Chairman of the Planning Policy Committee, said: “We look forward to hearing what residents have to say about the ambitious draft plan to regenerate Caterham before the Council finalises it as a Special Planning Document which will form an integral part of the planning process. We will be at the exhibition events to answer any questions and would like to encourage everyone to come along and find out more.”

Councillor Michael Cooper, Chairman of the Caterham Town Working Group, said: “This plan represents a united vision for the future of Caterham, and the Caterham Town Working Group will continue to work closely with the Council and landowners to make sure it is delivered. We have already seen great progress with an exchange of contracts on the Rose and Young site and the owners of Church Walk Shopping Centre are looking to submit a planning application in spring 2018. We now want to hear what residents think about the possibilities for the future of Caterham.”
