Drop in, have your say and shape the plans for the future of Tolworth

Local people are invited to shape the vision for Tolworth at a set of three drop-in events in the south of the borough this month.

Residents and visitors are being asked what they think of Tolworth, how it could be improved and any opportunities they see for change. Suggestions and comments will then be considered when drafting the Tolworth Area Plan, which will go to full consultation for final feedback later in the year.

Kingston Council are working with local people, the Greater London Authority (GLA) and Transport for London (TfL) to create the transformational plan for Tolworth. 

The Tolworth Area Plan, once adopted, will set out a development strategy to enhance the appearance of the area, as well as improving facilities for residents and supporting the local economy. The plan will also offer opportunities to bid for funding.

Cllr David Cunningham, Cabinet Member with responsibility for Regeneration at Kingston Council, said: 
“We are involving the community at an early stage as we want the future of Tolworth to be created collaboratively. We want to hear ideas for change and transformation from local people and combine this with the expertise of council officers, the GLA and TfL to create an exciting future for Tolworth. 

“Tell us what you think - be part of it, help shape the future of Tolworth and be proud of the result."

Come along to a drop-in event and have your say:

  • 11am to 4pm, Tuesday 13 June - Tolworth Library
  • 11am to 4pm, Friday 16 June - 21st floor, Tolworth Tower
  • 9.30am to 1pm, Saturday 17 June - Goals, Tolworth
