Our New Local Plan

Epsom and Ewell Local Plan 2017-2037

The Council is preparing a new Local Plan to strengthen our borough’s future, while also delivering new homes, jobs, improved transport and green spaces. Formed in consultation with residents, the new Local Plan will put in place a clear strategy to bring investment, growth and prosperity to the borough. It will also set out strong guidance about the type of growth we expect to see, protecting the borough from ad hoc and inappropriate development. Our new Local Plan will cover the period to 2037.


We are developing a new Local Plan which will ensure that Epsom and Ewell continues to evolve as a modern market borough, which offers a special and unique place for people to live, work, learn and enjoy themselves.


The borough’s previous Local Plan and related strategies were successful in helping to mould the borough into the welcoming and successful place that it is today.  The new Local Plan will have a similar role, responding to the latest challenges we face as a borough and listening to the views of local people to help shape an even better future for decades to come.

Shaped by you

The views of local people are key to this work. It is essential that the borough’s future is formed by those who live and work here, and we will be undertaking further public consultation this spring to hear your views.
