Green Belt area GB46, which runs alongside Blundel Lane (north of the rail bridge) near Waverley Road might possibly be developed for housing.
The background is that a report submitted by Savills on behalf of the Crown Estate, during the 2019 Local Plan consultation, recommended the development of this area.
Not only is the area used by many people for walking but it also helps separate the communities of Stoke d’Abernon and Oxshott.
Its development for housing would be a huge loss for everyone who enjoys the open countryside in this particularly beautiful setting. A further danger is that this might open the door for other Green Belt development along Blundel Lane.
Residents of Waverley Road and Blundel Lane have formed an action group named BluWav, which has now started an online petition. Their communication to their supporters is below, and includes a link to the petition. You are encouraged to support this petition to send a strong message to the council that we care about protecting our Green Belt.
The Stoke D’Abernon Residents Association appreciates the need for more housing in the borough of Elmbridge but does not want this to happen on Green Belt.
