Neighbourhood Plan 2023 -2040
Creating a better future for the Farnham’s
Welcome to the Farnham Royal Neighbourhood Plan page.
Here you can find useful information about the Neighbourhood Planning Process and specifically information on the work being done for the residents of Farnham Common and Farnham Royal to develop a plan for the future of the two villages.
The Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group has been working since late 2019 in consultation with residents to gather insights and data to build a plan which will help guide in the future development of the Farnham’s up to 2040.
We have identified four key objectives to help us in developing our local plan:
- Design coding to manage the quality of infill and other schemes and prioritising the mix of any future housing schemes to deliver smaller homes
- Defining a green infrastructure network important for wildlife and our local communities to protect them from loss, improve their condition and number/size
- Securing investment in traffic management schemes to make active travel to the Farnham Common Village Centre and other services and facilities more pleasant
- Protecting community and commercial services and facilities including retaining and enhancing the vitality and viability of Farnham Common Village Centre

What is a Neighbourhood Plan?
A Neighbourhood Plan is a land use document.
Once a neighbourhood plan is made (adopted) it becomes part of the development plan for the area. This means that its policies will carry full weight when planning applications are decided. Its policies must therefore relate to the development and use of land and buildings – things that need planning permission.
