The Runnymede Local Plan was adopted in 2001 and sets out our policies for guiding and controlling the way that buildings and land are used and developed in Runnymede.
The 2001 Local Plan will eventually be replaced by the New Local Plan. Information on our progress with the new local plan can be found on the Runnymede 2030 Local Plan (Emerging) .
The 2001 Local Plan was intended to serve up to the end of 2006 but from 28 September 2007, the majority of the policies have now been 'saved' under the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 and continue to form part of the development plan.

The Council has adopted a number of Supplementary Planning Guidance Documents and other useful guidance on submitting better quality applications. These can be seen in the Policy documents and guidance page.
The saved policies in the Runnymede Local Plan, alongside policy NRM6 of the South East Plan (which is concerned with development near the Thames Basin Heaths Special Protection Area), and the policies in the Plan produced by Surrey County Council (which relate to waste and minerals) form the development plan for Runnymede.
