The Spelthorne Local Plan is comprehensive in the health issues that it covers and there are no significant omissions that we would want to address. We would however like to promote the use of trees, green roofs, vegetation etc. to help reduce the effects of urban heat islands whilst also contributing to the health and wellbeing of Spelthorne residents. The above comments are advisory and do not comprise formal representations. In any case I understand that we have missed the deadline for respo

We welcome the opportunity to respond to this consultation on Spelthorne's Local Plan (the Plan) Preferred Options and provide you with comments that we hope you will find useful for the proper planning of the area. Overall, we support the policy position set out, particularly the support for Heathrow expansion and the planned release of Green Belt sites near Stanwell for strategically important industrial uses, subject to the specific considerations we set out in this response.

Thank you for consulting Transport for London (TfL). TfL has a number of strategic transport interests in the area including cross boundary bus services, Crossrail 2, a potential southern rail access to Heathrow and the impact of development on road corridors managed by TfL as part of the Transport for London Road Network (TLRN), specifically the A30 and A316 corridors. In taking forward the development strategy including major development sites, we would encourage you to consider access to pub

General Comments Spelthorne and the south east of England is an expensive area for housing. The relative cost of housing has a huge bearing on the extent to which those on lower incomes can afford to live in an area. In turn this can have an impact on local labour supply. The median value of a semi-detached house in Spelthorne is £450,000, for a flat or maisonette nearly £300,000, whilst the median rent for a home in Spelthorne is £1,114 a month. (August 2016 figures) As of January 2020, the

1. The Colne Valley Regional Park covers 43 square miles. It is the first taste of countryside to the west of London. The Regional Park aims to ensure multi-functional use of land in line with the six objectives of the Park, namely: i. To maintain and enhance the landscape, historic environment and waterscape of the park in terms of their scenic and conservation value and their overall amenity. ii. To safeguard the countryside of the Park from inappropriate development. Where development is perm

In conclusion, we support the Council's position in being willing to work with other Local Authorities in order to implement the best scheme for the southern rail access. We support the Council's aim to deliver the southern rail access only in circumstances where the scheme would connect East Bedfont to Heathrow Airport and wider London. We therefore object to the Council's stance to only propose a rail link to Staines Station. To help summarise, our key comments are outlined below: • Support t
