Following suspension of the Core Strategy Hearings the Borough Council undertook further consultation on revisions to Policies CP3 (Housing Distribution) and CP10 (Camberley Town Centre) between 30th May 2011 and 11th July 2011. Copies of the consultation documents can be accessed by clicking on the links below:

The Core Strategy & Development Management Policies DPD (Pre-Submission Stage)

Comments made during the Options Stage of consultation were taken into account and a pre-submission version of the document was prepared.

The pre-submission document set out the detailed policies to guide development in the Borough up to 2027 and was open to consultation between 9th August 2010 and 24th September 2010.

The Core Strategy & Development Management Policies DPD Options

The options document set out all of the options considered for each policy issue and although no longer a requirement under the 2008 Regulations the document also set out the Council's preferred approach to each issue. Where possible, the options document also included examples of how a future policy may look, although this was not a requirement at this stage of plan preparation as detailed policy wording was subject to consultation at the pre-submission stage.

In preparing the options document the Council also undertook an Interim Sustainability Appraisal (SA). The SA tested each of the options in terms of their social, economic and environmental impact and was used to inform the choice of preferred approach.

The options document and Interim consultation was held from the 29th September through to the 10th November 2008. A copy of the options document, SA and consultation comments raised can still be downloaded by clicking on the following links: -

The Council has previously undertaken work on three separate DPD's namely, the Core Strategy, Housing Needs DPD and Development Control Policies DPD.

Work on the Core Strategy reached the preferred options stage under the old Regulations in 2005, but was put on hold, due to issues surrounding the Thames Basin Heaths Special Protection Area (SPA). Since this time the closure of the Princess Royal Barracks, Deepcut has been announced and will now become a vacant site within the lifetime of the LDF. Advice from Government Office for the South East (GOSE) also stated that the Core Strategy could be combined with Development Control Policies.

To take advantage of these opportunities and the simplified 2008 Regulations the Council decided to return to an options stage which amalgamates the Core Strategy, Housing Needs DPD and Development Control Policies DPD into one document. Previous work from these DPD's can be viewed by following links at the bottom of this page.
