The Elmbridge Borough Council (EBC) Local Plan consultation opened on 19th August 2019 as expected and now that we have access to the full consultation documentation our team are busy analysing the information.
The consultation information and online questionnaire is provided via the EBC consultation website which has had some technical problems, and some have had problems navigating the site and finding the questionnaire itself.
The technical problems seem to have been resolved but some are still having problems navigating the site. In particular, access to the online questionnaire is not obvious as it appears at the foot of the “A New Local Plan: The Options Consultation” page, which is not seen unless you scroll to the very bottom of the page.
The free EBC’s public meeting on the 2nd September 2019 for Cobham, Oxshott, Downside and Stoke D’Abernon is 'Sold Out' but we are pressing the council to provide an additional one for Cobham, Oxshott, Downside and Stoke D’Abernon. You can register to attend one of the other meetings even though their focus will be on a different area of Elmbridge. The dates of the meetings currently announced are:-
You can only attend one of the meetings and you must have a ticket. To obtain your ticket you must register online via the following link:
All these meetings will be webcast live so you will be able to attend ‘virtually’ via the following link:
The Cobham Green Belt Group will be having a public meeting in mid-September (venue and date to be confirmed soon) to give residents an opportunity to ask questions about the process and hopefully get answers. We will be inviting our councillors to join us at that meeting.
Our team are analysing the information provided and will provide advice and recommendations via the www.cobhamgreenbelt.org website by the 1st September 2019. This will enable our residents to take part before the end of the consultation on Mon 30th September 2019.
In the meantime, do register on the EBC Consultation website at
and look at the information available.
One of the key EBC documents is “The Options Consultation Document”. For your convenience we have made it available via the following link in case you have difficulty finding it on the Elmbridge Consultation Website:

We want to get this right so please bear with us while we conduct this important work.

During the Consultation period, Elmbridge will be "hosting" some Local Briefings which will be held in the Civic Centre in Esher – with the Cobham, Oxshott, Downside and Stoke D'Abernon focused briefing on Monday 2nd September 2019 at 7pm. These are ticketed events and you need to apply for tickets.
