Tolworth Area Plan

About the Tolworth Area Plan

Tolworth residents engaging with planning officers

The Greater London Authority (GLA), Transport for London (TfL) and Kingston Council have jointly commissioned 'We Made That' as consultants to prepare an area plan for Tolworth. The Tolworth Area Plan will set out a vision and strategy to guide the type of development that will enhance the appearance of Tolworth, improve amenity for residents and support growth in the local economy. This document will give a clear understanding of what type of development should be encouraged, what good development looks like, and ensure that individual developments collectively deliver the vision for Tolworth and benefit the community. It will also be used to bid for funding for improvements in Tolworth.

Work on the TAP has been progressing since 2016 when early engagement was undertaken with business partners, local councillors and community groups. This was followed by community drop-in sessions in June 2017, when 345 members of the public took the opportunity to have their say on the plans being drawn up. The information gathered during the early engagement events was taken into account when drafting the Tolworth Area Plan.  

The Tolworth Area Plan is now in its final stage and we are running a second round of consultation which is open until 16 September 2018. Following this, the final plans will go to committee on 8 November 2018.
