The site at Parklands is one of a number recommended for release from the Green Belt in a report commissioned by Runnymede Borough Council which was published in December 2014. The Council is now in the process of preparing its new Local Plan and has recommended that these sites be allocated for housing.
Signature is proposing to build and operate a new care home for the elderly at Parklands. Planning permission has already been granted to replace the vacant office development with 50 extra care apartments in a 3 ½ storey building, and a separate 70 bed care home in a smaller 2 ½ storey building. Signature was recently chosen by the site owners, Chertsey Parklands LLP, as operator for the larger building and they have submitted a planning application for the new care home to Runnymede BC – planning reference RU.15/1005. Full details of the planning application, including all plans and technical documents, can be found on the planning pages of the Council’s website here.
Chertsey Frontier Estates are holding a public consultation event at Christ Church, Ottershaw on Friday 3rd March 3pm to 8pm and Saturday 4th March 10am – 2pm.
