Burwin Investments (Mark Wingfield) New housing in Elmbridge should now be focused toward 2/3 bedroom houses. 17 Dec 2016 11:28
Mick Flannigan Obviously many people need greater availability of smaller "starter" homes rather than big 4- and 5-bedroomed houses. However, we are seeing a proliferation of high-density units which are unattractive and unhealthy little boxes. 19 Dec 2016 13:56
Deleted User Depends on where. People choose to live in certain areas depending on the houses there. Example, people choose Cobham knowing there are are mainly larger houses. Many people choose to purchase and live in these areas not only for what the area has to offer, but also as an investment in the property, so certain areas should retain higher price housing. 05 Jan 2017 19:32
FEDORA (David Cooke) But it must be sensitively done in areas where subdivision of plots would not be a problem. 06 Jan 2017 13:27
Deleted User But important is the space we provide to these homes. We must not cram a lot of homes into small spaces. Some of these new builds are very attractiveness but they do not allow for space to breath or even park. It should be considered that not just residents visit. With a more spaced out population we should consider population movement and allow for space for further development of a plot for those investing today. 08 Jan 2017 09:54

Rachel Warren Current developments seem to be large family homes that are unaffordable to many local residents - surely this can be resolved within existing planning frameworks 08 Jan 2017 16:28
V Braun Generally speaking, I am in favour of letting market forces determine. However, in our Borough, I presume there are a lot of wealthy property investors originating from outside of the Borough, who may unfairly skew the demand. 08 Jan 2017 19:36
James Chowne The current size and supply of housing is appropriate for the area and changing this would be to the detriment of the local environment. 08 Jan 2017 20:09
Deleted User • Yes. But we believe smaller sized houses are feasible in existing urban areas and that a more joined up thinking and cooperation across boundaries is required in order to find an optimum solution
• Urban renewal and regeneration continues to be of higher priority and we believe the Council should be seeking to further identify and invest in brownfield sites. Increased density in such areas will allow for the provision of smaller, more affordable homes
