1939 (Elizabeth Ann) There are many services that would need improving to accommodate even more new developments - from roads, rail services, bus services, waiting times in doctors' surgeries etc. etc.All this would be extremely complex and very expensive. 11 Feb 2017 16:28

A Littler Dedicated cycle routes that don't require the cyclist to give way more often than a car making the equivalent journey, and which adults feel are safe enough to allow their children to cycle for school and leisure.

Adrian Hartley Schools – As a result of continual building in the area,
local schools are struggling to cope with the current
demand, let alone any additional demand.
The situation at Hinchley Wood Secondary highlights
this. Children in Claygate who are unable to get in to their
local school are offered places in Epsom, and from The
Dittons, it’s Hersham.
There is unlikely to be space within Area 58 to
accommodate a school in addition to housing and our
experience of Surrey CC is that they prefer to increase
capacity and build new schools more centrally to the
County, rather than on its borders. It is unlikely that a
secondary school would be built on the ‘housing’ land
and a new primary school would only exacerbate the
secondary school problem.

Adrian Larkin The New Local Plan (Strategic Options Consultation document) contains numerous flaws and
inconsistencies. The methodology is subjective and flawed
 Entire premise of the consultation rests on the requirement to build 9,480 new homes. The
probability of this forecast being correct needs to be understood – is it enough to remove Green
Belt status forever? Particularly in light of the Government’s concerns around the lack of a
standard methodology to assess housing need.

 The document has only explored 3 parcels of so called “weakly performing” land – other parcels
of so called “weakly, moderately or strongly” performing may be more suitable for development
e.g. nearer to higher urban areas
 No consideration given with the proposals for access to jobs and employment. Limited
employment opportunities in the immediate areas
 Economics of building lower cost housing on these areas of Elmbridge is unrealistic. What
makes the Council think that the difficulties of preventing developers from building larger
properties would change in the future once the Green Belt status has been removed?
Elmbridge strategy does not support the stated EU requirement which seeks to preserve and
enhance the quality of life of its residents, both current and future. In our opinion Elmbridge
proposals directly contradict these EU directives
You could also use this part to voice your opinions on the consultation process itself. For example:
 Object to the nature of the questions, which can be seen as manipulative and self-serving;
seeking to justify the Council’s recommendations and is therefore not truly consultative, but
merely ticking boxes, despite assurances from the Council to the contrary
 The consultation has been extremely difficult to understand and respond to due to:
 Timing of this consultation being launched just prior to Christmas
 The lack of information provided to local residents at the ‘exhibitions’
 The length and complexity of the documentation; and
 The length and complexity of the questionnaire which all seem to lead to the suggestion that
the Council is simply going through a process and is not seriously open to any challenge
from local residents, despite assurances from the Council to the contrary
