Following an initial consultation in the summer of 2022, Epsom & Ewell Borough Council have been working to develop people’s ideas into a new vision for the town centre. The council will be consulting the public on the new draft Masterplan from 24 November to 22 December to give residents, workers, business owners and visitors the chance to help shape the future of Epsom town centre.
The draft Masterplan sets out the council’s proposals for improving public spaces, green infrastructure, housing, transport infrastructure, improved wayfinding and public car parking. It also identifies four opportunity sites:
- The Ashley Centre and Global House
- Hook Road and Southern Gas Network
- Town Hall, Hope Lodge and Epsom Clinic
- Depot Road
The Masterplan will be a key part of the evidence base for Epsom & Ewell’s borough-wide Local Plan, which will guide decisions about planning, development and investment in the future.
Councillor Steven McCormick, Chair of the Licensing & Planning Policy Committee, said,
“If you live, work or study in Epsom, this is your opportunity to have a further say on the plan we’ve shaped with your help. The Masterplan is designed to improve the vibrancy and viability of the town centre as a key multi-purpose destination for the growing borough, and we want to hear your views.”
Respondents can view the draft Masterplan and give their views via an online questionnaire at https://epsom-ewell.inconsult.uk/ETCMP/. Paper copies of the draft Masterplan are also available on request by emailing email@example.com, or viewable in the borough’s libraries for the duration of the consultation. Feedback can also be sent in by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by post to Epsom Town Centre Masterplan, Planning Policy, Epsom & Ewell Borough Council, Town Hall, The Parade, Epsom, KT18 5BY.
