In 2019 a company called ‘Poppymill’ began to engage with residents about their ambition to build what they have named Hook Park. They are hoping to build on the Chessington Equestrian Centre and land at the end of Clayton Road known as the Dell. At that time, they wanted to build 1,500 housing units alongside parkland. Our residents’ association attended their workshops and presentations. However, we came away thinking that as the majority of land is on ‘greenbelt’ unless the Government changes its planning rules it is unlikely to ever be built. Not in our life time anyway.
Attached are the proposals from the developer. They also list the ‘special reasons’ that they hope will allow them to build on the ‘greenbelt land’.
This October we received a further invitation to attend one of their workshop sessions. There were a couple that took place earlier this month. However, there is a further one on the 29th of November. See the attached invitation if you wish to attend.
