Jamie Mainwaring Infrastructure, building more primary/secondary schools. 09 Jan 2017 12:00
Deleted User But retention of the character of the area is essential 09 Jan 2017 12:36
Deleted User Whilst I agree Elmbridge is an attractive place to live on the outside, there are a number of challenges that I feel need addressing:
1. The lack of school places - our local school only has sixteen spaces for next intake (there were over seventy parents at the open day) alternative schools are some distance away and require transport (adding to condensation).
2. Overcrowded public transport - the majority of peak time journeys are standing room only fares are high.
3. Heavily congested roads - it currently takes me an hour and fifteen minutes every morning to drop my daughter off to nursery, a three mile journey.

These are challenges that will not be helped with the addition of affordable housing.

Deleted User Hinchley Wood school is full. There are now 90 pupils per year in the primary school. I went to the same school 40 years ago when there were 30 per year. We will need another primary school and another secondary school if the proposed development between HinchleyWood and Long Ditton goes ahead.

It is also difficult to get a place at a GP surgery in the area and it is not always possible to get an appointment. We will need some more GP surgeries.

Kingston hospital is also full with high waiting lists. We will need another hospital.

The bus service between Esher and Kingston is overcrowded. The train service to London is overcrowded. The roads around the Scilly Isles, Hampton Court, Cobham, Esher, Hook and Tolworth and solid during the rush hours (7am to 10am and 4pm to 7pm). Commuting is already difficult.

The waiting list for cubs/ brownies, etc is 2 years.

The shopping in Kingston is overcrowded with 90 minute queues to park on a Saturday and Sunday.

If another 2000 homes are to be built with 5000 people, all these things will need greatly improving.

Kate Hedman As described above. In addition, the current development in Cobham especially but throughout the Borough has added increased pressure on roadways and created what can be considered dangerous traffic conditions for those of us with small children. 09 Jan 2017 20:26

Deleted User To protect/avoid development on our Green Belt so that it remains a key feature of our borough.

To address infrastructure requirements for existing residents (rather than just considering
infrastructure sufficient to support "any increase in development")

To maintain the environment and avoid further pollution.

To take account of the value of green spaces for the recreation of local people.

Catering for the health of the current population.

Deleted User The increase in road traffic and extra vehicles parking in Long Ditton due to the parking charges and other factors in Surbiton, resulting in less space for Long Ditton residents to park and potentially affecting the safety of children attending the local schools, especially St. Mary's Junior School which is opposite to where my wife and I live. 10 Jan 2017 13:08
