Kingswood Planning

ONE OF the most important functions of the KRA is in monitoring the many planning applications submitted each month for Kingswood. Some are major undertakings, like the development of the Legal and General site as a retirement village, or the proposed station development. Others are much smaller, but all have the potential to impact on the lives of Kingswood residents.

The KRA had two dedicated planning officers, John Lang and Keith Denyer, who examined every application that was made to the local planning authority, Reigate and Banstead Borough Council.  John and Keith retired from the KRA on 29 March 2022 and there is now a new team of four Committee members looking after planning for Kingswood, on behalf of the KRA.

The council invites the KRA directly to make observations on planning applications where appropriate, taking into account wider strategic planning and development guidelines for the borough as a whole. The planning officers work with the network of KRA road representatives and individual residents in assessing the impact of each planning application and will give a formal response, where necessary, to the local planning authority, Reigate and Banstead Borough Council.
