February 16, 2020 11:21 AM

This draft plan, whilst largely inherited from the previous administration, offer opportunities for improvement and innovative policies which have been introduced by the Lib Dems.

More affordable housing

Affordable Housing ()The draft plan offers positive opportunities for our communities. For example, the plan will ensure that more affordable homes are built, especially in rural areas, and will encourage social rents and shared ownership. It will also prioritise smaller family homes in the mix.

Many young people cannot afford to live in Mole Valley: we need to build more social housing and homes for rent.

More energy-efficient homes

The plan will require new homes to be much more energy efficient in line with the Council's climate emergency policies.
