1. Revitalisation of Leatherhead Town Centre

    Councillor Chris Townsend, who is Leader of Mole Valley District Council, has been closely involved in developing plans for a major revitalisation of Leatherhead Town Centre, with the help of substantial European Union funds to come to us through the Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership. One hundred million pounds may be available if a master plan to be developed by Mole Valley District Council to bring a major re-organisation to the town by proposing solutions to the problems of a moribund daytime economy and inadequate traffic circulation is accepted for a grant. The Council has agreed to Chris’s suggestion that it should spend half a million pounds over the next two years developing the plan.
