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.

 

We do not want any more homes built on any Green Belt Land. There are too many housing developments in the Borough as it is, the proposed development of “Area 58” will more than double the existing population of Hinchley Wood. With every new home having 2-3 cars the traffic, congestion, noise pollution and NO2 levels of air quality which is already very high will only get worse. Local roads have already become “rat runs” caused by traffic bypassing Esher town centre and made worse by the hundreds of coaches & cars on the school runs belching out their toxic fumes, clogging up our roads. There are insufficient doctors surgeries to support this development, schools & hospitals are also at capacity. The increased demand on services, doctors, hospitals and schools etc. will only make it worse for existing residents with every new housing development built in the area.

WE STRONGLY OBJECT TO ANY MORE HOUSING DEVELOPMENTS BEING BUILT ON ANY GREEN BELT LAND IN “AREA 58”SURREY / ELMBRIDGE.
