Policy ID2 is not being properly consulted on as, again, it depends on a document which does not exist. The parking issue will be most acute in Staines if proposals to build on the Riverside, Bridge Street, Oast House, Elmsleigh, Tothill and Elmsleigh surface car parks are implemented. Park+Ride or similar transport for outsiders will not help local residents who find there is almost no parking left in the centre. We may wish for the general adoption of car-free lifestyles, but in reality, Stain

This policy contains many admirable aspects but does appear to have only a very tenuous grip on reality. There is currently no appetite or money available for the "provision and improvement of public and community transport" or for "funding to deliver the transport projects and highways improvements required to support the spatial strategy". It cannot be expected that developers will make contributions that will enable any significant public transport improvements. This policy should be reviewed

All very well in theory but as there has been no extra improvements in transport/parking facilities over a number of years, especially taking into account the recent large developments in Staines and Ashford it is difficult to see how this policy (Option 1) will be achieved in real terms. Public transport doesn't go everywhere; so, therefore there is still a need for cars and parking.

I am responding on behalf of the British Horse Society, a charity representing the interests of the UK's 3 million horse riders and carriage drivers. On page 93 of your Policies document, it states, "Sustainable and active travel is defined as any efficient, safe and accessible means of transport with overall low impact on the environment, including walking and cycling, low and ultra-low emission vehicles, car sharing and public transport." We would ask the Council to bear in mind that active

As far as the plan itself, I am concerned that new developments will not have adequate provision for parking. It is very short sighted to say that new property in Staines is near bus/train stations and that people will not have cars - they will until public transport is improved. On the same subject, I am also really concerned about the development of the Ashford MSCP, again without adequate provision for parking. This will impact not only new residents but local businesses. My opticians in Ashf

Roads are already choked, how can we avoid further transport delays both public and private when you are proposing so many new homes? An example is Ashford. I use this regularly for services and my family and I use it for travelling to visit my elderly parents as well as my children having to use the buses that go through the High Street to get to school and college. Why has this plan not been part of the Heathrow expansion response to be more joined-up? How might we use this Local Plan to prote
