Local Councillors have recently thanked all residents who gave their views on the new Tolworth Area Plan. The consultation closed on the 5 November 2017 and the plan is intended to give some vital protection against developers and overdevelopment, including protection of our green belt and the Hogsmill surrounding area.
Many of the current overdevelopment issues we face in Tolworth have been caused by the decades old Tolworth Plan put together by the Lib Dems which left little protection against proposals for high density tall buildings, and notably failed to consider providing a new school or leisure facilities for residents.
Local resident and Conservative activist Tom Puddy said:
At last residents have been given a real chance to have their say for what they want on the area.
