Amy Leftwich As above, more thought needs to be given to the current population and not just to the future. A development of this size in Long Ditton would have considerable negative effects e.g. a huge increase in volume traffic in an already congested area with most of this going close to schools etc. What about safety and health of current population? The extra pollution when we are already near the A3, A309 and other roads could only be detrimental to health of current population. 24 Feb 2017 13:52

Gill Money We need to focus on maintaining or improving the quality of life for existing residents and making sure it is robust to survive into the future before we do anything about changing the Green Belt. A major issue is the road network which is already congested with surfaces in poor condition. Cobham High St is an area of poor air quality already, more traffic arising from additional development in the area will make this worse and spread the pollution further out of town as more traffic idles while waiting to pass through it. The recent Housing White Paper urges respect for the Green Belt as a vital resource for local communities to work as both 'green lungs' to help reduce pollution and to control the spread of developed areas. I am not convinced that enough effort has been put into finding creative ways to increase the density of housing in more urban areas so that the Green Belt can remain undisturbed. Another priority is to address the challenge of the ageing population in Elmbridge by the provision of accessible accommodation, support and facilities - this best delivered close to village/town centres where community groups, shops etc are located so residents do not have to travel far to reach them. 16 Feb 2017 17:36

Hugh Singer There are the following additional key challenges:

• To retain the quality of life for existing residents in Elmbridge
• To retain strong protection for the Green Belt as set out in the Government’s White Paper
• To avoid further urbanisation and in-fill
• To maintain the environment and avoid further pollution

Jane Carr - To retain the quality of life for existing residents in Elmbridge
- To resolve the transport congestion in our area - Cobham/Stoke d'Abernon/Oxshott have severe constraints due to enclosure by A3/M25
- To retain strong protection for the Green Belt as set out in the Government's White Paper
- To avoid further urbanisation and in-fill
- To maintain the environment and avoid further pollution
