Planning Committee to consider application for re-development of Ellice Road

The planning application for the re-development of the Ellice Road car park in Oxted will be considered at the Planning Committee on 5 April. To view the agenda for the Planning Committee please visit www.tandridge.gov.uk/elliceroad.

 The application is for a car park with 300 spaces, including disabled parking provision, mother and child spaces and charging points for electric cars. To view the planning application, visit www.tandridge.gov.uk and search for planning application reference 2018/350.

 If the planning application is agreed by the Planning Committee, it will need to be sent to the full Council meeting on 20 April for the Council as a whole to decide whether to grant planning permission. If it is approved work is expected to begin in June and be completed by the end of the year.

 While Tandridge District Council owns Ellice Road car park and has submitted the planning application, it is in the Council’s capacity as the planning authority that the application will be considered and subject to the same criteria as any other planning application received.                                                                                                    

The delivery of additional visitor and business parking for the town is key to the RegenOxted programme, which will also lead to the removal of the gasholder, an Urban Redesign project and a hub to encourage the start-up and growth of local businesses.
