Welcome to the Issues and Options (Regulation 18) Consultation page.
The Runnymede 2030 Local Plan is the key document that will provide the framework to guide the future development in the borough of Runnymede.
It sets the vision and objectives, and a focused spatial strategy to achieve these.
It will include policies for managing development and infrastructure to meet the identified social, environmental, and economic challenges facing the area up to 2030.
The Local Plan will set out what development will be needed and where it should occur as well as identifying key areas that should be protected.
