How To Get Involved

Throughout the preparation of Cranleigh’s Neighbourhood Plan, there have been many opportunities for residents to have a say on what they want for the future of the village. The information we have gathered has helped to inform the the final draft of the Neighbourhood Plan.


Current opportunities to get involved


Cranleigh Community Showcase

View the final Neighbourhood Plan and chat to members of the steering group on Saturday 21 May, 3 to 6pm at the Village Hall.

Final chance to have your say

We have now entered the pre-submission consultation stage. We strongly feel that the Plan reflects people’s views but if after reading it you feel we have got something wrong, then we urge you to get in touch so we can consider your comment and if necessary, revisit our evidence

We enjoyed having a stand at Cranleigh carnival and had chance to talk to lots of people about the progress we are making on the neighbourhood plan. People were very positive about living in Cranleigh and were pleased to have another opportunity to give their views about the future of the village.

Concern was expressed about traffic and parking bur we received some good suggestions and ideas for possible solutions.

We held a workshop to look at what should be included in the first draft of the Neighbourhood Plan.

It was a very productive meeting.
