Last call for comments on council’s five-year plan



A consultation that has been running over the summer on Reigate & Banstead Borough Council’s new five year plan – “Reigate & Banstead 2025” – closes on Monday 16 September at 5pm.

The plan outlines the council’s proposed priorities for the next five years, and covers not just the things it must do by law but also the services it wants to deliver over and above those, for the benefit of the borough and residents.

The draft plan and a summary are on a council webpage along with details of how to submit comments including via an online survey.

Objectives are listed around three themes of people, place and organisation.

Cllr Mark Brunt, council leader, said earlier in September: “I would like to thank all those who have participated and given their views so far – whether via the survey, in writing or in person. We value your comments.

“I would encourage anyone who lives or works in the borough and has not yet looked at our proposals to visit our website and fill out our short survey by the 16th.

“Reigate & Banstead is your borough, and our final plan will be better with your input.”

Following the consultation, comments made will be taken into account as the council finalises the plan. It is anticipated that the final version will be adopted by the end of the year.

The consultation opened on 22 July.
