Jamie Mainwaring You would simply be building on top of each other. A horrendous outcome. 09 Jan 2017 12:00
Deleted User Focussing on higher density will make it easier to support ne communities (transport links, schools etc) but the addition on densely populated developments to areas that have historically enjoyed open space will not only upset existing residents but create unbalance in services/infrastructure 09 Jan 2017 18:10

John Girdley Local roads are already inadequate. Hundreds of new residents will merely add to local traffic chaos. 10 Jan 2017 10:46
Deleted User Area 58 (between Hinchley Wood and Long Ditton Village):
Infrastructure totally insufficient to support high density housing. For example:
• Hinchley Wood Secondary School cannot cope with the current numbers in the feeder schools so any development on this area would disadvantage people from those feeder schools living further away eg. Claygate and Thames Ditton pupils who are offered
places in Hersham and Epsom as alternatives.
• Surbiton Station is already exceeding capacity.

The Council should seek to develop social/affordable housing near to the major sources of employment and nearer to better service provisions

Building social/affordable housing in Area 58 (Long Ditton/Hinchley Wood) is unrealistic:
• Market forces will ultimately dictate prices as usually happens
• Placing social/affordable housing in this area will not meet the needs of those people who need easy access to job opportunities and good public transport links, neither of which exist in this area.

Air quality in an area already polluted by nearby roads

John Millward For the two areas in Cobham, a mixture of semi detached houses, town houses and small blocks of flats (<12 flats per block and no more than 3 storeys) should give a density of around 60DPH which would increase delivery without unduly affecting the area.

I cannot comment on the Long Ditton area as I am not familiar with it.

Raymond Coe A well designed complex of flats sympathetic with the surroundings might be acceptable at >40 dwellings per hectare but a poorly designed complex could be appalling. 12 Jan 2017 17:44
