Deleted User Parcel 14 (Knowle Hill Park and next to Blundel Lane, Stoke d’Abernon):
• With regard to Parcel 14 – the semi-rural nature, the topography of the land and the existing housing in the surrounding area
• Economics of building social/affordable housing in an area that is one of the most expensive in Elmbridge is unrealistic
• Infrastructure totally insufficient
• Moving from the current 8 hpd to the proposed 40 or 60 is quite totally out of keeping with the current environment

Parcel 20 (next to Portsmouth Road, Cobham):
• Infrastructure totally insufficient
• New school there next summer. 1200 New pupils with major traffic congestion
• Will adversely affect air quality in a heavily polluted area

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 do not consider this proposal appropriate for the reasons outlined below.

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

• A density of 40dph would be in utter conflict with the semi-rural nature, the topography of the land and the existing housing in the surrounding area.
• The economics of building social/affordable housing in an area that is one of the most expensive in Elmbridge is unrealistic.
• The infrastructure is totally insufficient, but constrained by the topography. Narrow country lanes and roads cannot be broadened easily.

Parcel 20 (next to Portsmouth Road, Cobham):

• The infrastructure is totally insufficient, but constrained by the topography. Narrow country lanes and roads cannot be broadened easily.
• A new school with 1200 pupils will already fill the road with large numbers of additional cars and buses every morning and evening.
• Air quality will be adversely affected by a massive increase in traffic.
