Caterham Masterplan

Tandridge District Council is working with the community, including the CR3 Forum and local businesses, key stakeholders and the Parish Councils to produce a viable Masterplan for Caterham Valley and Caterham-on-the-Hill.

The Masterplan aims to deliver a vision for Caterham Valley and Caterham-on-the-Hill based on previous community consultation exercises, in particular the Town Centre Design Statement (TCDS), building on the Neighbourhood Plan.

The Masterplan will:

  • Make the Valley and the Hill more attractive places to shop and spend leisure time in
  • Improve the facilities and infrastructure
  • Keep and build on local character
  • Make it easier to travel to and from the two centres

Masterplan Timetable

The Masterplan is being prepared in a staged way. We are currently in Stage 2 and are consulting on the Masterplan options. The Masterplan stages are:

Stage 1: Baseline (Autumn – Winter 2016/17)

Understanding the Now: Parking surveys and Transport Statement, Property Market Assessment, Planning Policy Review, Stakeholder Consultation, Townscape Analysis and Socio-Economic Review.

A number of baseline reports have been produced and can be viewed here.

Stage 2: Option Development (Autumn – Spring 2016/17)

This stage of the project will set out ideas and options for delivering key projects in Caterham Valley and Caterham-on-the-Hill.

Stage 3: Masterplan and Implementation Plan (Summer 2017)

Taking into account community feedback and project testing, the draft Masterplan and Action Plan for Caterham Valley and Caterham-on-the-Hill will be established for further consultation in summer 2017 before producing the final Masterplan.

Stage 4: Final Masterplan (Summer/Autumn 2017)

The final Caterham Masterplan will be produced and approved by Tandridge District Council.
