Residents are being invited to have their say on building heights and good design for new developments in Epsom and Ewell.

Following recent changes in national planning policy, Epsom and Ewell Council is required to prepare a series of development management policies to guide and manage future development proposals.

A number of campaign groups have voiced their concern in recent weeks about an alleged "loss of vision" for Epsom town centre, fuelled by anger over the station development.

The council is now welcoming the views of residents and businesses to make sure its new policies are appropriate, and a consultation has started which runs until September 7.

The policies focus on sustainable and higher quality development and will also cover topics including managing new development in the green belt, climate change, heritage assets and managing new retail and employment uses.

They will replace the older development control policies in the 2000 local plan which are no longer relevant or out of date.
