Elmbridge Borough Council in Surrey has voluntarily registered Stokes Field Nature reserve as a Village Green.


This is fantastic news! Firstly, it means that Elmbridge Borough Council will now not attend or object at Public Inquiry, leaving the Save HWLD Green Belt team to face One Tree Hill land owner, developer Taylor Wimpey. Secondly, Elmbridge's voluntary registration of Village Green shows that they too believe in the value and benefit of permanent protection of our green open recreational spaces.

The total area outlined in green and yellow shows the proposed Village Green. The area with a green border has been voluntarily offered by Elmbridge Borough Council as a Village Green. The area with a yellow border is the subject of the Public Inquiry. Our application for a Village Green v Taylor Wimpey in opposition.

More information about EBC’s Village Green voluntary designation is available here.

Monday 24 – Friday 28 April

9am-12noon & 1pm-4pm (approx) each day at Long Ditton Village Hall

2 Ewell Road, Long Ditton KT6 5LE (opposite Long Ditton Rec)

Please come along and show your support; it's a large venue and the more people that attend, the more we show how important this is to our local community.

You may also find the process interesting; with witness evidence by all parties, a recognised expert in aerial imagery and specialist Village Green barristers presenting their respective cases, all presided over by an Inspector appointed by Surrey County Council.
