Deleted User • No. As we said above most of Parcel 14 is not for sale or developable due to the above constarints
• We believe that the Council’s approach to only detail the largest three land masses is simplistic and erroneous. The actual amount of developable land is a more relevant and critical component.
• This should have been done across numerous parcels after a full investigation of Urban and Brownfield opportunities

Parcel 14 (Knowle Hill Park and north of Blundel Lane, Stoke d’Abernon):

• Parcel 14 topography next to Blundel Lane is steep, flood risk and was also a landfill site – so unsuitable for development
• Parcel 14 also has a Scout Camp which is widely used not just by Elmbridge but also by neighbouring boroughs including Kingston. Historic memorial present. Trustees stated it is not up for any Development
• Parcel 14 also has a number of extensive Ancient Woodlands
• Parcel 14 has extensive Common Land
• Parcel 14 is covered with protected animal species
• Parcel 14 has a lake at the top of it and springs around the lower levels and floods
• Parcel 14 has clay work mine shafts and underground bunkers used during the Second World War
• Millgate have put the vast majority of developable land out of reach of any future development
• Clearly this Parcel is totally unsuitable for any of the Council’s proposals

Parcel 20 (next to Portsmouth Road, Cobham):
• No part of Parcel 20 is suitable for development
• There are allotments on Parcel 20 which constrain development
• The Rugby Club has a very long lease on part of the land
• Protected species
• Common land, gas mains, agricultural status, mineral area, conservation area

Deleted User I would agree that if the land currently occupied by Rose Hill Nurseries became available together with part of the land from Woodstock Lane South to the RBK boundary became available then it might be developed but I would question the wisdom of this as set in my answer at question 6. 21 Mar 2017 13:38

Deleted User No. I believe this is the Council’s responsibility. In my view, the Council’s approach to only detail the largest three land masses is simplistic and erroneous. The actual amount of developable land available is a more relevant and critical component.

Parcel 14 (Parcel 14 (Knowle Hill Park, Fairmile Park, north of Blundel Lane):

• Parcel 14 has ancient woodlands and is home to protected animal species.
• Parcel 14 has a lake, many springs and floods frequently.
• Parcel 14 has clay work mine shafts and bunkers from World War II.
• Parcel 14 has a scout camp and a historic memorial.
• Millgate and Scouts which own circa 75% of land have informed the Council that no development will be allowed now or in the future.
• In summary, 85% of the land in question is off limits due to the above points.

Parcel 20 (next to Portsmouth Road, Cobham):

• There are allotments on parcel 20 which constrain development.
• The Rugby Club has a long lease on part of the land.
• Parcel 20 encompasses gas mains.
• Parcel 20 is about to have a large school opposite it with 1200 pupils. This will push the infrastructure to breaking point
