In West Byfleet the overall position, as we see it is this:-
West Hall land proposed released from green belt for 592 units for development between 2022- 2027.
Broadoaks immediate release for mixed office and housing [ Our feed back from the community was that you are happy for this site, which has been empty for fifteen years, to be used for a mix development.]
There are other areas of land mentioned within this report, but we feel West Hall is the most contentious.
At the public meeting on 1st December 2014 there was overwhelming support to keep our green belt land safe.
We also appreciative that some of our residents feel that new homes are needed in the south east and they have to go somewhere!
But there are many concerns, not least the road system, all this proposed new development is along the Parvis Road.
Much of the proposed housing may be ‘affordable’ this will bring young families into the village, so concerns over school provision, health care, sewage and water supplies etc.
The Forum Committee at the moment is writing your West Byfleet Draft Neighbourhood Plan, so we need your help to now hook at this Green Belt Review Document.
The Byfleet, West Byfleet and Pyrford Residents’ Association has suggested that each village should put any comments to Woking Council via the village Forums.[ In Byfleet and Pyrford the release of land is for after 2027.]
Please forward this info onto your neighbours, friends and spread the word!
