Deleted User Preservation of Greenbelt must give in order to meet the housing targets 09 Jan 2017 12:36
Deleted User I would strongly disagree, the community feel is what makes Elmbridge (Oxshott in particular) attractive. We have recently moved out of London to distance ourselves from overcrowding and many of the families we have met have done the same. The addition of social housing and additional traveller sites will only dilute desirability. 09 Jan 2017 18:10
Kate Hedman I agree that some of these items are indeed challenges the Borough faces but belive strongly that maintaining the integrity of our community (including the environmental aspect) is just as important. 09 Jan 2017 20:26
Deleted User I disagree. I believe the key problems facing Elmbridge are:

1. How to preserve the density of traffic using existing transport infrastructure including rail and road. Additional houses would further pressure that infrastructure

2. How to preserve value of area that makes it a desirable place to live - desirability of houses are a function of the area they sit in, including green belt land and the type of accommodation

3. How to preserve look and feel of the area - increased density of dwellings removes much of the distinguishing character of Elmbridge

John Girdley Change is inevitable and EBC must plan for such changes but public consultation must be more than a tick box affair.

The issues of infrastructure, transport and medical services must be addressed before any thought is given to accommodating London Overspill.

Deleted User We need to protect our green belt in this area.
Elmbridge has already stated previously that a central part of its core strategy is to protect the Green Belt and this should remain so.
Us as a family and families in the area use this space for leisure.

To resolve the transport congestion in our areas:
Long Ditton Village/Hinchley Wood have severe constraints due to enclosure by A309/A3/A243 and Portsmouth Road.
We need to maintain the environment and avoid further pollution. We need to catering for the health of the current population.
To preserve the character of Elmbridge is extremely important for all who live here.

Deleted User I fully understand that there is a need for more housing to be built, it is just a question of where the building takes place, and all factors have to be taken into consideration before any decision is made. 10 Jan 2017 13:08
Deleted User more detailed impact analysis on Impact on amenities, infrastructure, house prices, crime, standard of living, transport with validation.

What about impact on Hinchley Wood residents standard of living?

Michael Gadbury I feel the policy to build more houses in the areas proposed, and in the South East generally is wrong. The government is putting pressure on local government to change Green Belt land to allow building development in areas where the fundamental infrastructure will not support such developments.
A policy of building new towns and villages (outside of the overcrowded South East region) would be much more sensible.

Elmbridge has already stated previously that a central part of its core strategy is to protect the Green Belt and this should remain an absolute priority.

The council should look to retain the quality of life for existing residents in Elmbridge
The council should look to address infrastructure requirements
The council should address the severe transport congestion in our area – Cobham/Stoke d'Abernon/Oxshott have severe constraints due to enclosure by A3/M25 and the proximity of Parkside and Danes Hill schools
The council should protect our Green Belt and look to avoid further urbanisation and in-fill

The council should take account of the value of green spaces for the recreation of local people
