The headline news regarding the proposal to build a Garden Village on Redhill Aerodrome is that RAV/Thakeham Homes have dramatically increased the number of homes proposed from a potential figure of 4,500 to 6,000 – 8,000 homes. At time of writing there is no explanation as to how the figure has risen so dramatically. This follows initial information from Thakeham that the 4,500 figure may not be achievable at the site due to various land issues including flooding.
In July Tandridge District Council removed the Chaldon site from the list of sites under assessment thus there are now only four sites, including the aerodrome, under consideration.
Tandridge District Council launched a consultation on the 14th August this will be open until the 7th October. The purpose of the consultation is to give residents and representative organisations the opportunity to comment on the four sites. KRAG urge everyone to respond to this consultation particularly with reference to the aerodrome site.
The next stage in the Local Plan process is to select a site. Subsequently Council will submit their proposed Local Plan to an Inspector for examination and adoption. The plan will be accompanied by all comments received via the various consultations. It is important to note that only comments submitted via consultation will be seen by the Inspector.
The consultation includes a number of documents which will give information on each of the site(s) supplied by TDC assessment and the proposers.
In order to comply with the Link deadlines in advance of the 14th August we regret we are unable to provide any additional information regarding the content of the consultation in this article.
We cannot urge you strongly enough to ensure your views are considered and to respond to the consultation.
Updates will be posted on our web site http://www.kragnet.co.uk
