Elstead and Weyburn Neighbourhood Plan

A formal application was made by Elstead and Peper Harow Parish Councils to designate the Neighbourhood Area and was publicised in accordance with the relevant regulations. No adverse comments were received. On 9 June 2015 we designated Elstead Parish and the Weyburn site within Peper Harow Parish as a Neighbourhood Area.


A Neighbourhood Planning Referendum relating to the adoption of the Elstead & Weyburn Neighbourhood Development Plan 2013-2032 will be held on Thursday 20 June 2024.
