Planning Application 19/02966 – 11 – 25, Leatherhead Road

Chessington District Residents’ Association

Planning Application 19/02966  – 11 – 25, Leatherhead Road

The application is for demolition of eight existing residential dwellings and erection of 45 residential units with associated car and cycle parking, landscaping and access works. 

CDRA think the application is far too big for this location where we already have severe traffic problems on the A243.  It is also a great shame that such large family homes will be destroyed in what can only be seen as a ‘money making’ exercise by  the developer. There will also be limited car parking spaces which will in turn mean that the surrounding residential roads will be further encroached onto.

We will do our best to fight the application.  However, we know that the RBK planning department have been working closely with the developer for many months.  Therefore, it will be hard to get it refused.  Particularly, as the Council have large housing targets to meet. 


This is the link for the application.

You can object to the application by clicking in comments.  The more objections there are the more likely we will be listened to. 

Please note that the official date for objections is the 19th of December.

The route that the planning application will take is that now it has been submitted to the planning department at Kingston Council, the Planning Officers will study it and decide whether or not to recommend acceptance by the Development Control Committee ( Date not yet notified).

On the 7th of January  the planning application will be discussed at a  Planning Sub-Committee The meeting will be held at Chessington Methodist Church Hall at 7.30pm.

The meeting is for residents and Councillors to feed in their comments and questions and for Officers to clarify any points about the  Leatherhead Road proposal. The feedback will then be fed into the report for the Development Control Committee members.

Please note It will be a consultation meeting not a decision making meeting.  Councillors will not be voting on the application on the night. 

                                    PLEASE COME ALONG TO THIS MEETING
