The Westcott Village Forum was established in 2012 to develop a Westcott Neighbourhood Development Plan. The Westcott NDP was formally adopted by Mole Valley District Council in December 2017, following a referendum of Westcott residents asking if they wished Mole Valley District Council to use the Westcott NDP to help decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area. 91% of those who voted in the referendum said yes. The plan covers the planning period 2017 to 2026 was developed by a group of local volunteers and followed extensive consultation with the local community. The WVA is now responsible for maintaining and updating the NDP, and monitoring planning applications in the context of the plan.
A copy of the approved Westcott Neighbourhood Development Plan can be found on the Mole Valley website www.molevalley.gov.uk/westcottndp Full details of the village survey results and all the documentation used in the preparation of the Westcott NDP can be found on the dedicated website www.westcottvillageforum.com
