Zdenek Cerny I don't consider the following stated exceptional circumstance valid:
- The land that is being kept open for the purposes of Green Belt is no longer meeting those purposes
The method of evaluating this circumstance is not clearly explained.
In my view most GB areas, including Area 58, successfully meet their prime purpose, i.e. prevention of urban sprawl. Although choosing Option 1 or even Option 3 could admittedly result in some reduction in the total GB land, the substantial presence of the remaining GB in all areas would continue preventing creation of a continuous urban sprawl.

Yomi Akin The document clearly states "The Green Belt is not an environmental or landscape designation but a policy for controlling urban growth. The fundamental aim of Green Belt is to prevent urban sprawl by keeping land permanently open. Therefore the most important attribute of Green Belts is their openness. National policy sets out the purposes of Green Belt as:
• to check the unrestricted sprawl of large built-up areas;
• to prevent neighbouring towns merging into one another;
• to assist in safeguarding the countryside from encroachment;
• to preserve the setting and special character of historic towns;
• to assist in urban regeneration, by encouraging the recycling of derelict and other urban land.

Yoko Crow -the Consultation Documents state that Green Belt boundaries should only be adjusted “with the support of local people”. The Council does not have this.
-We believe that the Council is taking the easy way out in targeting Green Belt and should re-focus on brownfield sites. Consideration should be given to increasing the densities on these sites.

Yatin Prema I wish to refer to Consultation questions 1,4,5 & 6. I support EBC’s evaluation and the selection of option 2. The Green Belt assessment, especially identifying Dark Green where Drake Park is proposed and the Light Green for Cobham and Long Ditton, is critical to ensure the effectiveness of the Green Belt. Maintaining Walton on Thames, Hersham and Molesey identity is so critical. 30 Jan 2017 10:17

Xerxes Pochkhanavala Green belts are there for a reason - to help with a better quality of life.

if you start taking them over for housing you have nothing left except concrete jungles and mass pollution. then 14 years later you will spend millions of public money trying to tackle pollution - so STOP the waste of money
