EFFINGHAM NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN SUBMITTED

 

Effingham’s Neighbourhood Plan has reached a landmark stage. Following approval by Effingham Parish Council, and strong support from residents in a parish-wide survey, the Plan has now been formally submitted to Guildford Borough Council. The next steps will be a formal consultation, then a formal Examination which may require changes, aand finally a referendum of all Effingham residents to decide whether the Neighbourhood Plan is to be adopted.

 

You can view and download the Submission Neighbourhood Plan, together with the Evidence Base and supporting documentation, on the Neighbourhood Plan page.

The galleon used as this website's logo is the emblem of both the Parish Council and the village. It is the Ark Royal, the flagship of the English fleet in which Lord Howard of Effingham successfully faced the Spanish Armada in 1588. Sir Walter Raleigh had the ship built at Deptford in 1587 for his own use, but before launch she was purchased by Queen Elizabeth I for £5,000. Today’s HMS Ark Royal, 5th to bear the name, is still flagship of the ‘Senior Service’ – the navy. An emblem to live up to!
