  • No, I disagree
  • I don't Know

Please explain your answer
«No response»

Do you consider there are other challenges that we should be addressing?

 

  • Yes
  • No
  • Don’t know

Please explain your answer
Improve the roads and work on getting more local transport for the working community getting into London.

3

Do you consider any particular challenge or challenges that are more important than the others?

  • Yes
  • No
  • Don’t know

Please explain your answer
Improving the road, schools and transportation for the locals already living here before you decide to add thousands more. if there is no infrastructure to support the additions then you cannot add more to the already overused services!

4

Agree that Option 2 is the most appropriate option?

  • Yes, I agree
  • No, I disagree
  • I don’t know

If you disagree, please explain why and what other option would you support and why?
I disagree with all 3 options of redeveloping the green belts...once you start taking over green belts for housing you become a concrete jungle...the quality of life suffers and the children have nowhere to play and run about..
stop selling property to foreigners who don't use them and start selling them to UK citizens....that would be a good start

5

Do you consider the suggested exceptional circumstances are sufficient to support the amendment of the Green Belt boundary?

 

  • Yes
  • No
  • Don’t know

Please explain your answer
Green belts are there for a reason - to help with a better quality of life.

if you start taking them over for housing you have nothing left except concrete jungles and mass pollution. then 14 years later you will spend millions of public money trying to tackle pollution - so STOP the waste of money

6

Agree that, given the appropriate exceptional circumstances, these three key strategic areas are appropriate for removal from the Green Belt?

  • No, I disagree

9

Do you agree that we should seek to provide more of a balance in terms of the size of new homes being built?  

 

  • Yes, I agree
  • No, I disagree
  • Don’t know

Please explain your answer
We don't need more homes in an already overcrowded borough if it means taking over the Green Belts!

  • Don’t know

Please explain your answer

11

Should we seek to increase minimum densities at sustainable locations in the urban areas, such as in town centres and at train stations, above 40 dwellings per hectare, where this would not impact on local character?

  • Yes (If yes, what density do you think would be appropriate?)
  • No
  • Don’t know

Please explain your answer
not if you cannot provide enough school spaces for the extra children who would come into the borough, increase local transportation and better roads.

12a

Within the three key strategic areas we will be exploring opportunities for accommodating our development needs taking into account site constraints, land ownership, compliance with other planning policies and the need to support sustainable development.  If potential housing sites are identified within these areas, do you consider it appropriate to

  • Yes, I agree
  • No, I disagree
  • I don't know

they have enough spaces and create enough mess which then is cleaned up with public funds which could be better used.

30

Are there other approaches we should consider?

  • Yes
  • No
  • Don't Know

Please explain your answer
improve the roads and local transport.

31

What do you consider to be the essential infrastructure items required to support new communities e.g. the potential development of the 3 key strategic areas?

better roads, more schools so people already living there do not loose out to new mass of people you want to house in the area. Also make sure there are enough doctors surgeries to cover the new influx of people - again this is at its limit already and nothing has been done about it. More trains into London - running on TIME!

32

What smaller infrastructure improvements do you think could be made within your local area to address some of the negative impacts arising from new development?

leave the area alone. increase the surgeries and schools. leave the green belts alone. and make all roads with schools on them a 20 MPH speed limit instead of putting in useless peed bumps that are so wide and ineffective that they just become another bit of wasted money and nobody slows down ie - near Long Ditton Infant school - we have asked for a 20MPH speed limit over and over again but its never happened because that road is a shortcut for people driving across and they are wealthy and people drive well over the 30MPH limit on this road daily. but again you wont care! what will it take?? a kid to get run over and killed? and then you want to add more people to that mess....seriously get a brain!

33

We recognise that there may be other issues or options we have not considered that you would like to raise. If there are we would like to hear these and consider them as part for this consultation. Please use this space to write anything else you would like us to consider.

 

MAKE ALL ROADS WHICH HAVE SCHOOLS ON THEM A 20MPH SPEED LIMIT WITH PROPER SPEED BUMPS NOT A LOW WIDE MEANINGLESS ONE AND HAVE SPEED CAMERAS - IT WILL MAKE YOU MONEY (ISNT THAT THE PRIME REASON FOR ALL YOUR NONSENSE?).
THIS KEEPS GETTING PROMISED AND THEN NOTHING IS DONE ONCE THE ELECTIONS TAKE PLACE - YOU KNOW THE USUAL POLITICAL LIES ETC ETC THAT YOU ARE SO GOOD AT....
HOPING SOMEONE HAS A BRAIN AND DOES THE RIGHT THING!
