Dear Sir or Madam,

The Runnymede 2035 Local Plan Issues, Options and Preferred Approaches (IOPA) document was the subject of formal public consultation between Wednesday 6th July and Friday 26th August 2016. Thank you to everyone who participated in this consultation. During this period, a total of 740 duly made representations were received by the Council. An additional 22 representations were received after the formal consultation closing date. The Council has accepted these representations as if they had been duly made, and their content has been taken into account with that of all the others.

The Council has produced:
• A document confirming the name of each person who submitted a representation and their unique ID number.
• A document that summarises the representations made and also provides officers responses.

Both of these documents can be found on the http://runnymede.us6.list-manage.com/track/click?u=6c6a6897c2a95467ef42cad29&id=be50f45813&e=b77c10502b of the Council’s website. Officers have sought to respond to the key points raised in each representation.

An e-newsletter has also been produced (which includes up-to-date information about what the team has been working on since the IOPA consultation, and what they will be continuing to work on over the next few months) and a summary of the methods of public engagement used during the IOPA consultation.
