3a

Place-making and the continued success of well designed, well-functioning places is fundamental to developing a growth strategy for the borough. What are the key characteristics that make your area a great place to live? (Maximum 500 characters)

It's individually. The area has the feeling of a village yet within fairly easy access to larger towns/Cities.

3b

What changes would you like to see in the borough over the next 15 years? (Maximum 500 characters)

A small increase in the number of homes. Not too many as it will spoil the character of the area.

4a

This options consultation document sets out 5 options for housing growth for the borough.  These are:

Option 1-intensify urban area
Option 2-optimise urban area and 3 area of Green Belt release
Option 3-optimise urban area and large Green Belt release
Option 4-optimise urban area
Option 5-optimise urban area and small areas of Green Belt release

 

Which option will best suit your area?

 
  • Option 1
  • Option 2
  • Option 3
  • Option 4
  • Option 5
  • Other

Please tell us why you have chosen this option (Maximum 600 characters)
This appears to be the best way to keep the character of the area, by allowing the green spaces to continue.

4b

Please give details of any alternative ways you think we could meet the government’s ambitious housing target for Elmbridge of 623 new homes each year for the next 15 years. (Maximum 600 characters)

 

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.

5.

How do you think we should plan for the new homes we need in your area?

  • Higher densities
  • Green Belt release
  • A mixture of higher densities and Green Belt release
  • Other

Please provide any comments here (Maximum 500 characters)
Using the unoccupied buildings within the borough.
