We are in support of the Policy not including size or permitted development restrictions and giving consideration to proposals on a case by case basis, enabling decisions to be made by taking account of the individual merits of proposals. To inform the Local Plan review, a Stage 1 Green Belt Assessment was undertaken in 2017 and a Stage 2 Green Belt Assessment in 2019. The Land to the west of Town lane, Stanwell Moor has been assessed in isolation as Sub Area 7-b in the Green Belt Assessment. T

Policy E1 seeks to prevent inappropriate development within the Green Belt. Whilst we agree with the principle of the Policy, we certainly do not agree with the proposed amendments to the Green Belt Boundary as set out in our assessment of the Green Belt Assessment above. In summary, we contend our analysis clearly demonstrates Sites A and B do not perform the purposes for which land is included in the Green Belt and as such, release of both Sites should be supported. We therefore consider the a

With regards to the Green Belt, Paragraph 136 of the NPPF sets out that Green Belt boundaries should only be altered where 'exceptional circumstances' are fully evidenced and justified, through the preparation or updating of plans. Before concluding that exceptional circumstances exist to justify changes to Green Belt boundaries, the strategic policy-making authority should be able to demonstrate that it has examined fully all other reasonable options for meeting its identified need for developm

Green Belt and Environment We are pleased to find that the stage 2 Green Belt Assessment Report measures green belt review on the five NPPF purposes. We support the conclusion that the report finds that the majority of the green belt in Spelthorne is performing an important role in terms of the NPPF purposes for both the strategic and smaller scale. In the report, sub-areas RA-1, RA-2, RA-3, RA-4 and RA-7 are considered to be locations close to RBWM. Whilst we recognise the site areas perform we

Draft Policy E1 fails to meet the requirement at NPPF Para 138 to set out ways in which the impact of removing land from the Green Belt can be offset through compensatory improvements to the environmental quality and accessibility of remaining Green Belt land. The LPPO makes no provision securing such improvements drawing on supporting evidence of landscape, biodiversity or recreational needs. Again, the plan needs to move on from simply providing supportive policy environments to setting out p

RBWM Highways supports this policy, which seeks to protect the Green Belt and prevent inappropriate development unless very special circumstances can be demonstrated.

Policy E1 (Green Belt): We ask that the policy and supporting text highlights the importance of offsetting removal of land from the Green Belt by inclusion of compensatory improvements to the environmental quality and accessibility of remaining Green Belt land. This is as set out in NPPF, Paragraph 138, and supporting guidance and should be interpreted at a local level. The CVRP should be a candidate for such compensatory improvements.

An insightful Government introduced the concept of Green Belt Land for a vital reason and that is to save us from ourselves! As humans we are inherently selfish and unless encouraged otherwise, we are all extremely short sighted. As humans we have no more right to the Green Belt Land than it's current occupants; namely plants, trees and wildlife. The current occupants are part of our natural eco system that supports and sustains all life on earth. Destruction of the Green belt through human c
