Police College Development - Local Residents Critical of Plans

Rate this item
(10 votes)

Further to the article published on 20th January, a number of members have expressed their objections to the proposed development by Linden Homes and have formed the Police College Development Action Group (PCDAG) to oppose the plans as they currently stand. The density, layout and traffic management arrangements are chief amongst their concerns. If residents would like an electronic copy of the possible grounds for objection, which they may wish to incorporate into their own letter to Spelthorne Council, please contact PCDAG on This email address is being protected from spambots.

    The planned buildings ARE lower than the existing buildings, but they are planned to be built much, much closer to the street. As a result, they will loom over the whole of Green Street.

    But this is not the greatest effect they will have - just see what effect the planned buildings will have on those existing homes in Broadlands Terrace and in Stile Path.

    In short, too many homes are planned to be crammed into the Police College site.

    As developments go, this one looks reasonable, and in keeping with the area. It lowers the height of the current buildings and provides a high number of parking spaces - nothing will ever prevent people parking where they shouldn't. I think that is will also improve that whole corner of the village.

    I do agree that whatever is there will be a better site than the now delapidated police college, but i am concerned about the parking. People from Thames Street park in Stile Path and Forge Lane already. If the new residents decide to start parking there as well, rather than drive round the one-way section, then where will the residents of Forge Lane and Stile path park? Maybe we should have residents parking!

    It isn't being a nimby to want what replaces the police college to be as good for the area as possible. The current plans have missed many opportunities to do something better.

    Currently occupied by a dreadfully run down office block, you'd have to be a complete nimby to oppose this development. Wake up locals and dont oppose everything, just takes away credibility if you cry wolf too often

    Apart from the issues of parking and traffic, both of which will have a negative effect on this part of Sunbury, the building planned for the Police College site will drasticaly affect the look and feel of Green Street and the surrounding area.

    This development will be very high, and very close to both Green Street and the houses on Stile Path. It will be like having the Lubyianka dropped in from on high, dwarfing the buildings on the other side of Green Street and invading the privacy of the Stile Path residents.

    It needs to be rethought.

    Concerned that the Police College is becoming a dumping ground for fast food containers, bottles, glases etc.
    The area opposite outside, the Flowerpot, where the pavement and immediate outside are covered with cigarett ends, cigarette packets, which are not cleared up by the Pub, and litter bins not provided.
    This area is fast becoming a "blot on the landscape" and undermining the image of Lower Sunbury.
