On average Epsom and Ewell receive 35 planning applications per week. With regard to planning appeals, where a planning application has been refused by the local planning authority, there are around 3 per week, but again it can vary.

Epsom & Ewell News
Get Planning and Architecture sees the importance of staying abreast of current issues within architecture and planning news especially within local areas. This is so that we have an understanding of the needs of a borough and its residents.
Planning permission has been granted for a large and controversial project on the North East Surrey College of Technology (NESCOT) campus. After several schemes had been discussed and refused, including provision for student accomodation and the creation of 91 homes on the site on Reigate Rd, the second application for the development of a Care Home on the site was accepted by the council on 6th November 2014. A previous application for a care home on the site was refused by the council earlier in the year. The development on the 14 acre site will involve the creation of a dementia care home, a nursing home, and the provision of two buildings fit for 150 residents. The project will be overseen by developers the Goodman Group.
