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)

Cobham has always been a very 'Local' village, more of a town now - and on any given day its obvious that the capacity to absorb people and cars have been exhausted, the high street is often a very busy thoroughfare - taking in traffic from both M25 and A3 when those get problems.

3b

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

Less traffic and less construction that involve a one family house developed into a mega development, too many people and too much traffic - See above!

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)
My two previous observations are my reasons: la Cobham, enough development, the town totally unsuited for more.

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)

 

Surely there must be other areas more suitable, a big 'No' to more in Cobham.

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)
England is a large country with lots of space outside already established areas - go there!

6a

Are you aware of any planning issues that need to be addressed in our detailed day-to-day planning policies?

  • Yes
  • No

6b

If yes, please specify which planning issues

  • Density
  • Design / Character
  • Building heights
  • Parking
  • Conservation Areas
  • Historic features (e.g. listed buildings)
  • Sustainability / renewable energy

  • Other

Please provide an explanation of the issue(s) (Maximum 400 characters)
What building/development that has happened has not really been in keeping with the character [sic] of Cobham - please do not make it worse.
