We – and a number of residents who have made their own enquiries – have been told by representatives of Spelthorne Council that “no Planning Application for Kempton Park has been received”.
This is perfectly true.
But you can plan without putting in a Planning Application. Indeed, submitting an Application is a step quite far into the process of any development.
The documents we have circulated so far give some idea of the substantial amount of planning work that has already been done, particularly with regard to the traffic spill-over that will result from building a suburb of the size that has been discussed amongst the various participants in this project. Anywhere from 1000 to 2000 dwellings (depending on whose correspondence you read) will generate a lot of extra load onto already overburdened roads.
This work has been in train for some considerable time. So far, the earliest date we have been able to establish with any certainty is 21 March 2012. Attached (KKG Documents 19 and 19a) are the Agenda and Information Pack relating to a Tour of Kempton Park made by representatives of the Council, The Jockey Club and Kempton Park that afternoon.
As ever, these documents are in the public domain. Please feel free to pass them on.
Please encourage your neighbours to join the mailing list.
There is more to come, in due course, over coming weeks.
Keep Kempton Green
