Deleted User • Density depends on many factors so a definitive answer is subjective.
• Creative design should be used to maximise the opportunity with these developments.
• Stop giving away the urban sites for small densities and luxury such as the MOD site.

Woolf Bond Planning (strvwn Brown) See covering letter.

The key feature of the urban area in Elmbridge is the relatively low-density character within many of its settlements according to the paragraph 2.2 of the Elmbridge Local Plan: Strategic Options
Consultation (Reg 18) from December 2016.

At the same time the Land Availability Assessment form September 2016 identifies that due to the Borough's location within the Green Belt the amount of land available for development is constricted. Consequently, both of the documents highlight the high demand for property in the Borough and increasingly deepening affordability issues.

While we fully support increasing of density in urban areas, there remains an opportunity to allocate suitable and sustainable sites, such as Claygate House and its land to the rear (east), for housing development. This will help to deliver a broad mix of housing to complement higher density flatted schemes elsewhere in the Borough.

Deleted User I don’t think you can have a blanket ruling on this issue, in some cases a higher density level might mean that it will be possible to either retain, or provide an urban green space for recreational purposes but where possible I think this should be avoided. However, more blocks of flats near to railway stations would be popular with commuters. I would sooner see a slight chipping away of all levels of green belt rather than increase the density above 40 dwellings per hectare anywhere in the borough. That is not what Elmbridge is about. 21 Mar 2017 13:38

Deleted User • Setting a target depends on many local aspects which need to be factored in
• Creative design should be used to maximise the opportunity with these developments
