No Increase of Density
The average number of houses per Hectare in Tandridge is 3 dwellings per hectare. In parts of Caterham it is 37 dwellings! The Green Belt is not an excuse to dump all development in Caterham.
Protect Green Spaces
We MUST keep our current parks and green spaces free, whether they are in the Green Belt or not. We urge TDC to remove them from consideration in the Local Plan.
Warlingham environment still under threat
Tandridge Council has extended the whole Local Plan process in order to do a separate consultation on the sites being put forward by landowners for development in order to meet housing need. Most of these sites in Warlingham were in the previous consultation, but they have now been subject to detailed analysis to see how well they meet Green Belt objectives and contribute to the landscape and ecology.
Our Infrastructure cannot cope with the amount of new building we are seeing now, let alone in the future. We need to upgrade our ageing infrastructure first.

Cllr Chris Botten, Chairman Caterham on the Hill Parish Council writes:
