Policy SP2 Ashford, Shepperton and Sunbury Cross Whilst Sunbury, Ashford and Shepperton offer opportunities as outlined in Policy SP2 there are significant congestion issues along Ashford High Street and poor public realm which might also be mentioned in the context of this policy as they support the need for sustainable and active travel opportunities. Although we recognise the potential for development opportunities in Ashford, Shepperton and Sunbury Cross the inference that they comprise tra

Although you have included specific policy on green and blue infrastructure which we fully support, we would like to see a commitment within the overarching strategy for these areas to include reference to the watercourses and water environment which is present within them. Within the opportunities paragraphs, we recommend including wording to support proposals which protect and enhance watercourses and their habitat, thereby increasing biodiversity and improving wildlife networks. We would lik

RBWM Highways considers development in this location to have minimal impact on their network and therefore has no comments.

The LPPO proposes 639 new homes at Shepperton, 699 new homes at Sunbury and a further 526 new homes at Ashford, a total of 1,864 new homes without any proposed improvements to Sunbury Cross. SCC's Strategic Highways Assessment confirms that Sunbury Cross is a 'hotspot' junction that is forecast to be at stress. This junction already experiences congestion issues which will be exacerbated by the additional trips arising from the potential development sites at Ashford, Shepperton, Sunbury and othe

Increased retail development is to be approved of in Ashford to enable the town to thrive. It does not need more housing to do so. The area near Ashford Station would be better used for other facilities; parking is a clear and obvious need especially as the Multi-story car park in the High Street will close. I object to the development of the land close to the Ashford Sports Centre. It should remain as open space, we have lost enough sports facilities and should be better used rather than left i

Policy SP2 applies to Ashford Shepperton and Sunbury Cross centres and again contains statements about seeking to improve and enhance them. It replaces policies TC3&5 and CO2. But Policy CO2 applies to the whole borough and requires developers to contribute to infrastructure costs - a much stronger statement. We object to the loss of CO2.

It is difficult to understand the point of this policy. It sets out a series of potentially desirable outcomes with no indication of how they are to be achieved. Statements are made about transport for which there is no evidence of why or how these would be achieved. A reference is made to renewable power/CHP without any context or explanation of what is intended. "The Council will support proposals", but there is no suggestion that these aspirations can be delivered. The identified monitoring

We suggest the following amendments to the wording of the section Character to better reflect the intention of national legislation and guidance (Planning (Listed Buildings & Conservation Areas) Act 1990 and NPPF): 4. The Conservation Areas around Shepperton (shown on the Proposals Map) will be [remove preserved] conserved and enhanced, along with heritage assets within it. Proposals will be supported that protect and enhance the local character of the area and its setting.

This policy suggests that there is potential for development by raising densities of land usage around transport interchanges. Whilst, in the case of Sunbury Cross, there is a combination of Surrey local bus services, the rail service and regular Transport for London buses, the situation in Shepperton is very different with trains that only go toward London and a one hourly bus service to the nearest major commercial and shopping centres. The policy states that the Council will work with infrast
