Housing and Green Belt Survey

Epsom and Ewell Borough Council is this autumn starting its consultations about its plans for new house building locally. The Government has asked local authorities to make provision for more housing, particularly affordable homes. There are too many young people who are struggling to afford to buy or even rent a home. But I believe that that future planning must protect the character of the area. I want to get your input so that I can make the case for smart future development in the Borough.

Question Title

* 1. I believe that new housing locally should be mostly built on brownfield sites. Do you:

Question Title

* 2. I think that the Kiln Lane, Longmead and Hook Road Car Park commercial areas have the potential to be the centre of the Borough’s housing strategy.

* 7. I believe that there should be tight design rules in the local plan so that the feel of the area is not changed by a range of unsuitable new developments. Do you:

Question Title

* 8. Do you have any other comments about the local plan and how the Council should provide the housing that is needed locally?

Question Title

* 9. Can I have your contact information so I can keep in touch with you about local issues?
