Last summer, our team consulted with residents of Alfold about proposals for 69 homes on the site. The overwhelming message that we received was that people did not support new housing which didn’t bring forward new infrastructure. As a result of those discussions, we took the decision not to continue with the application for 66 homes and to work with the local community to support the delivery of new infrastructure and community benefits requested by the people of Alfold.
We appreciate that Alfold has seen its fair share of development over the past decade and much of this new development has not been of such a scale as to support the provision of new infrastructure. That is why we plan to change the approach. Rather than continue with promoting development on smaller parcels of land, we want to create a cohesive plan for the site, which delivers new homes and genuine infrastructure-led benefits for existing and future residents of Alfold.
Before we create the plan for the site, we would like to talk with you about what infrastructure is needed in the village and how this could be delivered on the site. To sign up for our round table discussion, please see the details below. The format of the events will require you to sign up in advance so we can guarantee capacity around the table. We have several time slots, so will hopefully be able to accommodate everyone at the time of their choosing.
Thank you, and we look forward to meeting with you.
