Andrew Soye I think the balance between existing developments and existing green spaces is about right. I don't believe in the other options. 19 Aug 2019 09:13
BGL Group (Michael Fletcher) Greenbelt is great -BUT - it must serve a purpose for the community and be economically sustainable. For the community to benefit from the existence of greenbelt, and its owner sustain its management, current boundaries must change. 19 Aug 2019 09:34
Adrian Biddle I am strongly opposed to green belt development, as the green belt is the reason why people choose to live here. Open spaces such as recreation areas and car parks in the urban area are also important to the community and should not be given over to development. Option 2 seems to reach the best balance, as it limits green belt development to three weakly performing areas whilst at the same time avoiding the conversion to housing of important urban spaces. I am strongly opposed to option 3 and option 5, as these would destroy the character of the area and put huge pressure on minor roads. 19 Aug 2019 10:17
Mrs Verrill Because by not using existing built up areas you encourage urban sprawl and ruin the character of ancient leafy villages 19 Aug 2019 11:00
Lee Gibbs The area's infrastructure already cannot realistically cope. High streets and roads such as Fairmile lane are so busy at peak times, 5 minute journeys can take 30-40 minutes. Trains are too infrequent for the number of commuters. Too few school and amenities. 19 Aug 2019 11:18
Lesley Sullivan This appears to be the best way to keep the character of the area, by allowing the green spaces to continue. 19 Aug 2019 11:18
Michael Oszywa Protects the green belt without over developing urban areas. Any additional projects should be on brown field sites. 19 Aug 2019 11:20
John Turnbull Because it would keep the current aspect of the area which in 1971 was even more village then town 19 Aug 2019 11:26
Christine McIntyre It is the least worse option. 19 Aug 2019 11:34
Esher CAAC (Michael Phillips) I think that there should be a sequential test before any green belt is released.The significance of Green Belt to the setting of the Foley Estate C.A. is considered in the attached C A appraisal. 19 Aug 2019 12:06
