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.
WE NEED OUR RESIDENTS TO GET INVOLVED

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. However, you can still send in your objections by email to firstname.lastname@example.org until the final decision is made at the Development Control Committee.
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).
Residents comments were heard at the Planning Sub-Committee on the 7th of January. Their comments will be passed to the Development Control Committee so that they can be taken into account when they make their decision.
