Welcome to Ashtead Community Vision – we are a new group set up in response to the recent Localism Act. We want to make sure that Ashtead’s residents, businesses and organisations have a chance to shape the future development for our village.

Because we do not have a Parish Council we have to do this by establishing an Ashtead Neighbourhood Forum. The Forum will be empowered by Mole Valley District Council to prepare a Neighbourhood Development Plan which will feed into the Local Development Framework  for MVDC  for the next 20 years.

“Neighbourhood Development Plans provide a great opportunity for you to have more influence on how the place in which you live and work will change over time.” CPRE guide to Neighbourhood planning

We want ALL the community to get involved either by being on the Forum, helping the preparation of the Neighbourhood Plan, or by making their views known via consultation and surveys.

Over the next couple of months will be having some public events to give you a chance to find out more and ask questions, and to recruit members for the Forum and to help, please see ‘Latest News’ for the dates
