Five options have been put forward for the Elmbridge Borough:-

Option 1

Intensify urban area

Build 9,345 new homes hugely increasing urban densities plus utilising allotments and playing fields and relocating these to Green Belt.

Option 2

Optimise urban areas and 3 areas of Green Belt

Build 6,800 houses by increasing urban density and creating 3 large housing estates – with two in Cobham & Stoke D’Abernon. This is the same option as put forward in 2016 which was rejected.

Option 3

Optimise urban land and large Green Belt Release

Build 16,300 new homes by increasing urban densities & taking large areas of Green Belt – huge impact in our area - potentially 12 Green Belt Sites including one of 2000 homes!

Option 4

Optimise urban land and No Green Belt Sites

Build 5,300 homes in urban areas – 45% less than the Government target so effectively challenging the Government’s figures.

Option 5

Optimise urban land and release areas of Green Belt

Build 9,400 new homes and create a number of new villages in Cobham, Stoke D’Abernon, Oxshott (including one of 2,000 homes) and other areas in the borough of Elmbridge.
