1939 (Elizabeth Ann) It is essential to retain the quality of life for people already living in this area. They are facing increasing and unacceptable levels of traffic congestion exacerbated by the very busy A3, the M25 motorway with thousands of cars and lorries thundering through every day, and the newly built M25 Service Station at Downside.
The increasing levels of pollution that people and children are breathing in are very noticeable when walking along the roads.
The infrastructure is under severe strain and unable to cope.
In my opinion, and that of many friends, and people who live in, as well as visitors to, the area, these are the problems that should be immediately addressed and not ignored.
Further development on local Green Belt should be avoided at all costs. With intelligent and sensitive consideration, other sites could be looked at and assessed including brownfield sites, which could have the space & potential for attractive and really affordable housing with parks and schools etc.

1963 (Will Durston) EBC need to retain the quality of life for existing residents in the borough, and also consider the infrastructure requirements for existing residents, not just for the increased development areas. 21 Feb 2017 19:45

1981 (Oliver Bath) We really need to think about the value green belt spaces add for local people. The recreation spaces are at the core of this community. Due to insignificant infrastructure congestion will be a major problem. 22 Feb 2017 10:25
A Emery Elmbridge has already stated previously that a central part of its core strategy is to protect the Green Belt - this must remain a priority.

The Government in its 2015 Manifesto pledged ours to be “the first generation to leave the natural environment better than we found it”.

In the House of Commons, Communities Secretary Sajid Javid said: "In 2015, we promised the British people that the green belt was safe in our hands and that is still the case."
This consultation document leaves no question that the green belt is not safe.

The quality of life for people already living in the specified areas will be diminished with an influx of new residents, which counteracts the aim at the top of this paper which is to address the challenges "to everyone who lives, works and visits the Borough."

There will be a dramatic increase in traffic on already busy roads around Hinchley Wood and Long Ditton Village, areas which have severe constraints due to enclosure by A309/A3/A243 and Portsmouth Road.

Flash floods in the summer of 2016 highlighted that the area is already at risk. This major issue will be exacerbated and drains will be overwhelmed with the advent of more housing.
