Epsom Town Centre Masterplan Consultation
This consultation finished on 22 December 2023. Thank you to everyone who took the time to respond.
Following our consultation in summer 2022, when we heard from 1,979 members of the public and interested parties, Epsom and Ewell Borough Council has produced a draft masterplan for the town centre. This masterplan will be treated as an "evidence base" document to support the emerging Local Plan (which covers the entire borough), guiding principles behind development of the town centre in years to come. It includes guidelines for developers, investors and infrastructure providers about specific major development sites and more generally, including suggested highways and public space improvements.
Community Safety Action Plan
This consultation finished on 17 December 2023. Thank you to everyone who took the time to respond.
Our borough has long been regarded as a safe place to live and work however when issues do occur, they create significant public concern and if not addressed at an early stage, can escalate quickly and attract further, more serious problems. There is also the aspect of hidden crime where the victim may not have a voice and where vulnerable people are subject to coercion, exploitation and abuse. The pattern of crime and anti-social behaviour across the country is changing, and Epsom and Ewell’s proximity to London as well as its excellent transport links means that community safety is a high priority for the Borough Council and is seen as central to the borough’s future success.
