1939 (Elizabeth Ann) The key challenges that are dealt with in my answers to questions 1 & 2 are all vitally important and need addressing immediately……they all are very complex and impacting on each other. Overload of traffic causing severe pollution and congestion on the roads – this is dangerous and unhealthy, especially to our future generations growing up here; the infrastructure of schools, doctors’ surgeries, dentists, train services etc., is already under severe strain. There has been continuous building of very large houses filling up spaces in this area for decades, which has added to the massive increase of traffic and drain on the infrastructure.
Also, there has to be some way of accommodating the needs of elderly or infirm people here, who are having to downsize. In many cases, they are being forced, through lack of funds, to move away from the area at a difficult time in their lives. The retirement homes being built above shops in Cobham High Street will enable people to live there without cars and stay reasonably active by walking to shops and also, the surrounding open spaces. Other similar places could be considered without eating into valuable Green Belt.

1963 (Will Durston) Preserving our green belt is the most important challenge. Once we start to develop green belt land, there will be no stopping future development on other green belt sites. The development is irreversible - we won't be able to get our green spaces back, and future generations in the borough will have a lower quality of life. 21 Feb 2017 19:45

1981 (Oliver Bath) Keep the Green belt to keep our borough rich in open recreational spaces. The existing pollution levels are already unacceptable given proximity to the A309/A3/25. 22 Feb 2017 10:25
A Emery The quality of life for existing residents is paramount.

Hinchley Wood has already accommodated a major housing development in the Hinchley Park development, off the Kingston bypass.

There is already pressure on existing infrastructure - Thames Water have said the drains are archaic and can't cope with current housing levels, so any further development will be disastrous.

Getting a doctor's appointment can already be problematic.

Urbanisation ie preventing encroachment onto the Green Belt. Remember Communities Secretary Sajid Javid: "In 2015, we promised the British people that the green belt was safe in our hands and that is still the case."

The proximity of Hinchley Wood to the A3 and A309 and the M25 just a few miles away means pollution is already unacceptably high.
