PPDRA has alerted Elmbridge Borough Council to some significant green spaces in north Weybridge which are missing from the Draft Elmbridge Local Plan, which we feel merit the protection they would get if formally recognised in the EBC Local Plan as ‘Local Green Spaces’.
We initially listed 7 such spaces. Feedback from Elmbridge suggested that four of these cannot qualify. PPDRA has hence registered a formal Regulation 19 representation (in the formal consultation process which requires EBC is to consider further evidence) for the remaining three to be included in the Local Plan as Local Green Spaces:
- Thames Street Green Space (by the top of Grenside Road)
- Walton Lane Open Space (next to the Elmbridge Canoe Club)
- Grotto Road Recreation Ground (the football field)
We are hopeful that Elmbridge will be convinced to include these as formal Local Green Spaces in the final Draft Local Plan it submits to the Secretary State next year.
