The Ottershaw Society has just received notification that the Runnymede New Local Plan 2035 Consultation deadline has been extended to 5pm on Friday 26th August 2016 as set out in the email which can be found at the end of this post.

The Runnymede BC website, https://www.runnymede.gov.uk/localplanconsultation , has also anow got a copy of the Runnymede Local Plan 2035 draft Site Selection Methodology, which is an important and lengthy document showing how “Ottershaw East” , among other sites, was selected as a site for additional housing in the Borough. A copy of this document is attached.

We would urge anyone who supports our objection to the removal of “Ottershaw East” from the Green Belt to write to the Council at:
The Policy and Strategy Team, Runnymede Borough Council, Civic Centre, Station Road, Addlestone, KT15 2EH or e-mail them at planning@runnymede.gov.uk .  We must also stress it is vital that no standard “cut and paste” letters should be sent, as these will all be batched and counted as one objection.

Please Quote Your full name, address and telephone number and refer to the site “Ottershaw East”. Also please send a copy of your letter to committee@ottershawsociety.org

Remember EVERY letter counts !!
A big Thank-you to those who have already written to the Council.

The Ottershaw Society Committee
