Keeping an eye on your neighbourhood
A core aspect of our work and part of our broad commitment to the community is tracking key planning applications and the resulting decisions taken by local planning authorities.
We are not anti-development but pro-Weybridge – we always want to ensure a positive outcome for those who live and work in our area.
From planning consent on new developments to broader measures concerning traffic, parking and environmental issues, we’re at the forefront of strategy and feedback about significant projects.
We follow proposals in the Town Centre, Oatlands, St. Georges and Brooklands areas of Weybridge but also look further afield because neighbouring areas have a huge impact on traffic in our town. To see what’s happening now, view our Current Activities page for our planning update posts. Also visit the Elmbridge Council website for all current planning listings.
Experience and action – we’re there for you
With decades of experience, we know when a proposed new development poses problems and we produce our own feedback and suggestions as well as objections to the authorities.
We may take up individual concerns and queries from residents if an application has wider consequences. If we believe a particular project affects the area and clearly needs to be challenged or changed – we take up the matter on behalf of residents and Weybridge as a whole. All our work is done by volunteers and we hope that you join us and become a member of the Society, so that we know we have your support.
If you have specific queries about your own planning matter, then see the side panels on this page which provide guidance on a number of common issues.
Once an objection is taken up by the Weybridge Society, our Planning Panel liaises with local authorities and elected officials via letters and meetings to let them know about issues and ideas for improvements. From inception to completion and even onto appeals, we monitor what’s going on and ensure as far as possible that changes to Weybridge are ultimately positive for the look and lifestyle of the town and its residents.
A Respected Voice
Because we broadly represent the local population and have a long history, we are taken seriously by local authorities. Our reports and correspondences carry weight. We’ve been going for more than 60 years and have a lot of success to show over that time. See some of our successful Campaigns .
Keep Us Informed
Our Planning Panel works by area (Weybridge Riverside, Oatlands, Weybridge St. Georges – coinciding with Elmbridge Council wards) and we’re always looking for fresh faces to help us identify new developments in these areas and to track what’s going on at the Planning Consent level. For advice from the Society concerning any Planning Application in your neighbourhood, to alert us to a specific project or to offer help in your area, please contact us.
