Linda Grey • No. In my view, exceptional circumstances have not been demonstrated.
• I suggest the Council look at recent law cases where High Court judges dismissed the position of Councils believing they had exceptional circumstances.
• National Guidelines state that “unmet housing need is not a justification” sufficient to build on Green Belt land.
• The Consultation document states that Green Belt boundaries should only be adjusted “with the support of local people”. Local people very clearly do not support this proposal.
• The Consultation document does not demonstrate that due consideration was given to other options, e.g. higher density, medium rise buildings and urban development on existing sites.
• Related to the previous point, the Council have failed to show areas where residents and business want Green Belt and other development such as opposite Esher Rugby club.

Mr Groombridge • No – National Guidelines state that “unmet housing need is not a justification”
• No – the Consultation Documents state that Green Belt boundaries should only be adjusted “with the support of local people”. The Council does not have this
• No – the Alternative Options paper does not demonstrate that the Council has given due consideration to other options e.g. Urban intensification, working with other councils
• No - The Strategic Options paper has only explored 3 parcels of so called weakly performing Green Belt. The work should have been completed at a much lower level. Who is to say that the next levels of your identified weakly performing Green Belt Parcels are not more suitable and have more developable areas
• No -We believe that the Council is taking the easy way out in targeting Green Belt and should re-focus on brown field sites. Consideration should be given to increasing the densities on these sites.

Richard Carr There are many areas in the UK which lend themselves to new-town developments, without having to even consider building on green belt land. In my view, the Council has taken the easy option without considering the impact of the local community or their individual wishes. 19 Feb 2017 22:26
