Landform is promoting a 9.2ha (23 acre) site for 120 new houses at Plough Road in the pretty Surrey village of Smallfield. The site has been allocated in the emerging Tandridge District Council Local Plan, which is expected to be adopted in mid-2020.
The village, with a population of around 2,000, lies two miles to the east of Gatwick Airport and the town of Horley. Smallfield is well-served with local transport facilities, reflecting its excellent location close to major employment opportunities. The village has an active parish council, a good primary school, GP facilities, local shops and sports facilities.
Development of the site will help reduce the flooding experienced by many residents in the village, as it is located on the eastern edge of Smallfield enabling it to intercept and regulate surface water flows from nearby streams that currently overwhelm the village drainage system. As a part of the proposals Landform is working with the Parish, Environment Agency and Tandridge DC on their wider flood relief proposals.
More than 94% of the land in the Tandridge DC area lies within the Green Belt - the highest level of any district within the UK - which makes the identification and delivery of the necessary level of new housing and employment land for the district very challenging.
The intention is to submit a planning application as soon as the Local Plan has been adopted, enabling early delivery of the flood relief measures and much needed new housing.
