Surrey County Council (SCC) have updated its 2050 Place Ambition Document. This outlines the proposed long-term ambitions and priorities for Surrey local authorities and their strategic partners. The strategy is currently undergoing a refresh, a consultation on the Surrey Place Ambition Version 2 is now live, running until 4 March 2022.
SCC in two documents setting out a) priorities and b) a implementation framework what collectively the county needs to achieve over the next 30 years in terms of “good growth” and how we intend to deliver it.
SCC believe there are real opportunities for Surrey to grow and become even more attractive as a place to live and work. This needs to be balanced with the challenges that include climate change, not overloading our infrastructure, improving the quality of the environment and enables sustainable growth.
The Place Ambition has been developed by the Surrey Future partnership and is intended to promote a long term, co-ordinated and cross boundary approach to planning and managing the impacts of growth. The Place Ambition will be used to support accessing funding and investment opportunities for infrastructure and to support a zero-carbon future.
