Andrew Soye I think the space near the Fairmail pub looks interesting, if some development was needed. It has close access to big roads and is unlikely to have a major impact. 19 Aug 2019 09:13
BGL Group (Michael Fletcher) Option 3 is also suitable for enabling flexibility needed to balance needs. 19 Aug 2019 09:34
Adrian Biddle Much existing housing in Elmbridge is inefficiently utilised. There are too many very large properties. Elmbridge council can use planning policy to exert control over this. Many of these larger properties are now ageing and require redevelopment. Changing planning policy to block major refurbishment or replacement with single dwellings, in favour of multiple smaller detached family homes, would contribute many of the required homes. The government, for their part, could not both insist on so many new homes whilst at the same time opposing a planning policy aimed at delivering this. 19 Aug 2019 10:17
Mrs Verrill Allow councillors to work from home and use the vast
oversized council buildings for flats. Make use of disused commercial buildings for flats.

Lee Gibbs Utilise the large areas of land on the way to Guildford from the Elmbridge area. 19 Aug 2019 11:18
Lesley Sullivan This is difficult as I feel that the target is too ambitious. The infrastructure could not cope. It would totally change the area from a countryside feel to that of a town. A joint initiative with the London Boroughs nearby might give a solution. 19 Aug 2019 11:18
John Turnbull More flats to be built in urban areas with some green belt release 19 Aug 2019 11:26
Christine McIntyre By forcing developers to build more, smaller, units on demolition sites. Two very large semi detached houses built on Queens Road, Hersham at prices approaching £one million. Four smaller, affordable, homes could have been built here. 19 Aug 2019 11:34
Esher CAAC (Michael Phillips) The 5 options cover most alternatives. Increased urban density would help. You could happily add a storey to most town centres and retain the existing character 19 Aug 2019 12:06
Geoffrey Bills I do not recognise nor agree with Elmbridge trying to meet the so called 'ambitious' target for Elmbridge which adds weight to my view that we as a,semi rural district,not an urban one,need to secede from this unsuited to us council and create a new one which reflects the area's needs with conservation being the most important.The figure having clearly been arrived at by a housing demand assessment carried out in cooperation with the London Borough of Kingston and effectively thereby driven by the GLA's demands.Not Surrey County Council which 'should' be the relevant policy maker here not GLA. 19 Aug 2019 12:20
