FEDORA (David Cooke) As above.

Also this potential erosion of Green Belt is the thin end of the wedge.

One can imagine that every time more housing is needed a further parcel of Green Belt will be released.

The classification of Green Belt in terms of weakly, moderately and strongly performing areas is highly subjective considering only 2 of the 5 purposes for which it was created. The Knowle Park to Brick Pit area in particular prevents merging of the villages of Oxshott and Stoke D'Abernon.

Also the Knowle Park to Brick Pit area is particularly unsuitable for removal from the Green Belt because:
1. Access would have to be via Fairmile, Water, Littleheath or Blundel Lanes which are narrow and already overcongested.
2. There are ancient woodlands on part of the site.
3. The Brick Pit has wildlife and widely used recreational walks around it.
4. There is a public footpath through the site from Richards and Irene Road to the Stoke Road along the current edge of the Knowle Park estate.
5. There is a scout camp on the site requiring surrounding countryside.
6. The area contains fields used for grazing horses.
7. There is a high pressure gas main under some of the fields near the railway bridge.

Deleted User The consultation document does not highlight the associated impact on infrastructure. While employment opportunities are good in the area, the bigger challenge is the stain on roads and public transport as well as schools. Considering many people in the area are schooling locally, schools that are significantly strained and not equipped for the already growing popoulation. Additionally, the roads and train links are not strong enough to sustain the additional weight of commuters or leisure drivers in the area. We already have one of the busiest lines to Waterloo and very strained roads especially with the A3 and M25. Considering in particular the long ditton proposal, housing is the start of a bigger problem. 08 Jan 2017 09:54
