Kingston Council is calling on people to suggest sites that would ideal for redevelopment in the borough.

It has just launched ‘Call for Sites’, which encourages individuals, developers, or any interested parties to submit details of sites available for redevelopment over the next 20 years.

Proposals for the sites, which can be occupied, vacant, derelict or on greenfield land, can be for any use. This includes residential, commercial, retail, leisure, recreation or Gypsy and Traveller accommodation.

You do not need to own the site to submit it.

Councillor David Cunningham, cabinet member with responsibility for regeneration at Kingston Council, said: “This is a hugely important time for Kingston.

“We are creating our new Local Plan, which will guide development and put policies in place to ensure that any growth is appropriate for our Royal Borough.

“As part of this, and to make sure that we’re considering all aspects of Kingston and the land on offer, we are asking people to tell us which sites they think could be redeveloped.

“Once the survey closes in December, we will get to work and look at each site to see what the future of the land could hold.

“We’ll look at capacity, availability and what the most realistic and sustainable use for the site is. If, after full public consultation and testing, the site is suitable, then we will consider it for that purpose as part of the Local Plan.

“If you know of a site in the borough that we need to be looking at, tell us. Now is the opportunity to truly shape Kingston’s future together.”

Call for Sites will run until December 29 at 5pm. Details of sites in the borough and to submit an idea go here.
