Duncan Crane It is a matter of fact there is no over-supply of four bedroom houses as those which come onto the market are bought at full asking process very quickly which suggests that supply does not meet demand. I also disagree with the assessment of the reasons for the so called ‘over supply’ of four bedroom houses. I believe this isn’t a supply side problem but a result of demand and that our community has attracted this demand precisely because of the poor provision of public services, poor provision of public transport and poor provision of suitable job opportunities particularly in the South of the Borough. The distance from the major sources of employment which for this Borough are found in London makes living in the Borough and commuting very expensive. Meanwhile the poor public transport links and heavily congested roads makes it difficult to reach other suitable job opportunities in the North of the Borough. Ultimately, the demand for such housing has to go somewhere and maybe Elmbridge is the best place for it to go. 21 Mar 2017 12:00

Walton is the biggest urban development in the area and opportunities should be investigated there 21 Mar 2017 11:46

Birds Hill Oxshott Estate Co.… Whilst Elmbridge Borough Council considers that homes with 4 or more bedrooms have been ‘over delivered’, it is important to take fully into account the Borough’s wider context of London, which is continues to see a proliferation of 1 and 2 bedroom apartments.

The demand for 4 bedroom family houses will continue to exist in Elmbridge and to restrict their supply would prevent families both within and outside the Borough that wish to move up from a smaller property. It would also lead to further increases in the price of the existing stock, as supply levels of such properties decrease relative to demand.
