Mole Valley District Council is in the process of updating its Local Plan which will shape development in the District over the next 15 years.  It is looking to optimise the use of land available and maximise the ability of local businesses to expand or adapt their activities within the District.*


To achieve this objective we need your help in understanding the constraints and issues faced by local businesses associated with the use and demand for business floorspace.   We need to ensure as far as possible that the supply chain of floorspace matches occupier demand.  The findings from this survey will be used by MVDC in shaping its Economic Development Needs Assessment, Economic Development Strategy and in the updating of the Local Plan.


Your responses will not be attributed and will be treated in strictest confidence.


Please complete and return the PDF Questionnaire below, and return to Mole Valley District Council.  Return details are given at the end of the Questionnaire.


You may also complete the Survey online HERE.


Thank you very much for your contribution.

After much anticipation, The National Family Business Awards are now open for entry. Previously known as the Red Ribbon Awards, they have been rebranded to reflect their growing reputation for discovering and celebrating the most outstanding family-owned businesses throughout all four corners of the UK.


The action-packed National Awards Ceremony returns to London's spectacular Wembley Stadium on 15th July 2017, where the Regional Winners will be announced and 10 family businesses will be crowned National Winners.


These awards are unlike any other and are the UK's leading and highest accolade for family firms. So if you are proud to be an independent British business, or know a company who deserves to be recognised.


Who Should Enter?

If you're an independent, family-owned business you should enter. It doesn't matter how big or small you are, where you're based or what industry you're in. These awards are about showcasing the most outstanding family firms from all corners of the UK.


The Entry Deadline is 10 March 2017



An opportunity which has arisen recently which may be of interest.


Mole Valley District Council confirms that there are now 12 new permit bays available in Leatherhead. They are located at the entrance to the Leatherhead Football Club. The area has been tarmacked, the bays marked out and signage erected.


The spaces are known as Guildford Road Permit Bays and are available at a cost of £700 per space per annum. As the council will only ever sell 12 permits and given that the permits will state Guildford Road, the spaces are guaranteed. The spaces are being offered at a slightly reduced cost due to their location away from the town centre.


The spaces are offered on a first come first served basis, can only be purchased for 12 months (no 3 or 6 month permits) and there is no quarterly payment option, due to their reduced cost.
