Local issues affecting residents of Ashtead

The draft Local Plan, 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.

The consultation will be widely publicised over the seven week period and Mole Valley District Council (MVDC) is encouraging everyone with an interest in the district to take part and have their say on the locations identified for development and the planning policies proposed. MVDC will be holding a number of consultation events* where members of the Planning team will be available to answer questions about Future Mole Valley at a variety of locations and times.

The draft Local Plan and supporting evidence documents will be available to view online at futuremolevalley.org and in hard copy at MVDC’s offices in Dorking, the HelpShop in Leatherhead and libraries in the district. The consultation will be available by visiting the same website. For more information, please email This email address is being protected from spambots.

Councillor Margaret Cooksey, Cabinet Member for Planning, said: “The seven week consultation period is your opportunity to get involved in Future Mole Valley. If you live, work or indeed want to move to or around our beautiful district in the next 15 years, we want to hear from you. We need help so that we may successfully shape our draft Local Plan and ensure that, whilst we need to plan for new homes and infrastructure, we also safeguard what makes Mole Valley a desirable place to live.

“We want to ensure that the amount of development the government requires us to plan for in the district over the next fifteen years is in the best interests of residents and businesses alike. I would urge you to have your say. Look out for the postcards we will be mailing out to homes and businesses in Mole Valley containing more information about key dates and how you can get involved in the consultation.”
