Boroughs’ consultant says 1250 new dwellings needed … every year for 20 years

Surrey Advertiser June 19 2015 Boroughs need 1250 new homes per year

Dear Neighbour

Last night the Spelthorne Cabinet and the Runnymede Planning Committee discussed the GL Hearn Final Draft SHMA which, as we have shown before, proposes that the housing need in the two Boroughs is a massive 1250 new dwellings every year for the next 20 years. Spelthorne at the moment has a target of only 166 p.a.

As we have come to expect, Runnymede are far more forthcoming with information than our own Borough. The GL Hearn Final Draft Report (which we made public at the beginning of June) had yet, at the time of going to press, to be published on the Spelthorne website. Runnymede published it this morning – after having been asked by Spelthorne to keep it secret until today.

These massive housing figures are based on very large extrapolations of population growth, two-thirds of which is assumed to come from central London. We will be publishing a full analysis of the SHMA in due course.

Kind regards
Keep Kempton Green
