As part of the Local Plan the Council has produced an Area Action Plan (AAP) for Epsom Town Centre. This is Plan E.
Plan E is a long term strategy for the town centre and provides a framework for future change up to 2026. It is a long term 'spatial' strategy which will help deliver not only the Council's objectives for the town centre, but also the Local Strategic Partnership and partner organisation's goals and aspirations. It builds on the vision for the town centre set out in the Core Strategy.
As the main town centre in the Borough, Epsom plays a vital role in the community, being the focus for a range of services and activities. Like all town centres, it faces a variety of challenges and pressures. It has seen significant change in the past few years and this is likely to continue.
It is therefore important to plan to ensure that Epsom reaches its full potential and remains a vibrant and distinctive place where people want to visit, work, live and study. Plan E has been produced to help achieve this, and maps out a way forward for the town until 2026.
Plan E was formally adopted by the Council on 8 March 2011.
