This is a reminder that the final date for representations concerning the Runnymede 2030 Local Plan is midnight on Friday 29th June 2018.
Any representations that you made to the last consultation in January and February 2018 will be submitted to the Secretary of State, however you may wish to comment further on either the new evidence now included in the Plan or something you felt you previously omitted.
1. The “Ottershaw East” development
The Plan now includes 200 C3 dwellings (previously 230) at Ottershaw East on, as well as continuing to have 2 Gypsy/Traveller sites, on Green Belt land. It still also includes The Field Nursery, allowing access to Brox Nursery and the proposed development there.
The Ottershaw Society is opposed to this large-scale incursion into the Green Belt. Most of you will have already made this point in your previous representations, but if you haven’t please do so now.
2. A320 Corridor Feasability Study
The final A320 Corridor Feasibility Study is now included as part of the Plan and is of particular interest to Ottershaw Residents and especially the proposal concerning the massive expansion of the “Otter roundabout” at the junction of the A320, A319 and B3121.
We appreciate that this is still a feasibility study, however the proposal concerning this roundabout has been received with widespread disapproval by the Ottershaw village community.
We would urge you as residents to comment about this new proposal.
Points you might make include:
Finally you should urge that the Feasability Study is only taken forward on the basis of full consultation and that the Counciltakes heed to its own comments in the Local Plan para 3.20 (page 20) which describes the The Otter, local shopping parade and community facilities as the “Heart” of the community and its own Policy SD7 (page 49) ‘The loss or change of use of existing Social and community infrastructure facilities will be resisted……’
For your information here is a repeat of the various links we have already given you in previous alerts.
