We, in principle are not against development, we understand that housing is required and that some development will take place. We do question why the bulk of this development has to take place within the South East of England which has already taken much development over the last several years. One area that does concern us is Health Care Services. Spelthorne already has one of the largest population grow rates within the UK and then to add additional housing will increase the demand on healt

We are puzzled by clause 4 of ID1, which seems to say that only unwanted facilities should be retained. We suggest replacing 'where' by 'unless' and adding 'and' between the subclauses. If the stated wording is correct, it requires explanation. Infrastructure provision is essential, not just because it is currently lacking in some places but because the planned amount of new housing will have substantial requirements. CIL may provide funds but in some places, notably Staines town centre, there

The policy document notes that "Growth within the Borough has often out-paced the provision of necessary infrastructure". The 2019 Conservative manifesto said "Infrastructure first. We will amend planning rules so that the infrastructure – roads, schools, GP surgeries – comes before people move into new homes". There is a serious backlog of infrastructure provision across the borough and it is not sustainable to carry on in the current way. In the plan period it is proposed to build almost 10,00

Option 1 is given as the preferred option but, as stated above, it does not seem to ensure how additional infrastructure can be guaranteed to be provided at the same time as the developments: this has not been the case in the past, so how will it be achieved in real terms under this new Local Plan?

Sport England has reviewed the policy and based upon this and the reasoned justification, Sport England considers that the proposed policy is not intended to apply to sport and recreation provision. Sport England would be grateful for confirmation on this matter.

Policy ID2: Infrastructure and Delivery Canada Life is supportive of part 3 of the draft policy – that relating to Staines. Here, the draft policy says that Staines will be subject to bespoke standards (in a SPD), taking account of 'the anticipated level of development and provision of sustainable and active travel modes.' Canada Life is supportive of an early update to existing parking standards as those currently used are now eight years old and are not reflective of chapter 9 of the NPPF, w

Please confirm if the Infrastructure Delivery Plan (IDP) will be open to discussion with the residents? I am concerned from past experience that extra facilities including GP surgeries, parking and schools etc, have not properly been provided to meet the growing demand. In fact the GP surgery at Ashford Hospital was closed down causing a lot of extra strain on the existing facilities. Likewise the Walk In service at Ashford Hospital has reduced it's opening hours, having been downgraded from an

The number of extra people you are planning to house over the next 15 years will have a significant impact on the infrastructure of the Borough. In terms of, for example, health alone there are already insufficient GPs (admittedly a national problem) and following the closure of Ashford A&E, St Peter's is stretched beyond capacity. Something needs to be done now, not once your plans go ahead. I appreciate that you have said these areas are the resposibility of SCC, but surely this is a 'chicken

ASPH suggest ID1-4 is amended to "The council will resist loss or change of use of existing facilities where" by replacing "where" with" unless" to enable change and modernisation of community facilities.

All local planning authorities are required to have an up-to-date Local Plan setting out the policies and proposals that will guide development in the area. The Spelthorne Borough Council (RBC) Local Plan will provide a framework for providing homes and jobs that people need up to 2035. Spelthorne is undertaking a consultation on the Local Plan: Preferred Options and requires comments to be submitted by e-mail by the 7th of January 2020.
