NUTFIELD GREEN PARK - update July 2021

Further to the Developer leaflet distributed last year we have been advised that an Outline Planning application has now been submitted to Tandridge Planning and recorded under ref TA/2021/1040.

> Access search HERE - and enter this ref 

We have a number of concerns as this is a large development within local green belt and lying within Landscape Character Area and close to an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

Construction traffic alone will involve HGV movements of 132 per day plus other workforce movements to and from the site. These are added to existing HGV movements to/from a) the Biffa Waste Site and b) Mercers Quarry using the busy A25 which narrows through Nutfield High St containing numerous heritage buildings.

Reports were received regarding the destruction of wildlife habitat in Spring 2020 despite the land  being part of a Biodiversity Area (BOA).

NCS representatives are studying the content of this outline application and are liaising with Nutfield Parish Council, Tandridge Council and Surrey Council to adopt a common approach.

Residents of Nutfield Parish have received a leaflet from Nutfield Green Park Ltd providing updated detail of their proposed plans to form an application to Tandridge District Council for outline planning permission. The development proposes to include the following:

- 239 new homes set in four separate areas

- A rehabilitation and respite facility

- 100 'Extra Care' apartments

- An Outdoor Activity Park

- A Wellbeing Centre (to include GP Surgery, Community Shop, Restaurant/Cafe, Creche, Business Hub, Community Event Space, Indoor+Outdoor Gyms, Sport Treatment Rooms, Outdoor Play Area, Changing Rooms, Toilets and other amenities

The details now shown on this leaflet differ from that originally advised and from that previously shown on the document submitted  > Scoping document March 2019               The leaflet refers to the new vision being available via their website. 

NCS have provisionally responded to Nutfield Green Park Co Ltd to request clarification of exactly what is proposed in an application and meanwhile maintain opposition to the proposed concept  - see NCS response Dec 2020 

Formal comments will be made once full detail of the planning application are known.
