Linda Grey 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

Mr Groombridge • We believe that this is the responsibility of the Council and would request that details of further options be provided. If the Council has not fully evaluated all the other options in these three areas it clearly must do so.
• 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. 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. This is a real asset to the local community. There is also a Historic memorial present.
• Parcel 14 also has a number of Ancient Woodlands
• 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

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

Richard Carr The area 58 must be considered as a whole because declassification will mean that eventually the whole area can be built upon once building consent is approved.
The impact on local transport and communications can only be considered by taking the area as a whole.
