Drake Park, Walton, Elmbridge, Surrey

DrakeparklogofinalBlackChelgate is assisting Bonnar Allan with a planning application for over 1,000 new homes on 147 acres in Walton has now been submitted to Elmbridge Borough Council. 

The application was submitted in March 2015. If approved, it would see the former quarry transformed into a new sustainable village community with a 70 acre riverside park. The development will consist of a combination of 1- 5- bed apartments and houses. Plans for the site include a shop, a surgery, a pub, a two-form entry primary school and over 500 affordable homes.

Bonnar Allan held several public consultation events last year to get feedback from the local community on what they want to see at the site, which was used to modify the plans.

Nigel Rankine, director of Bonnar Allan said: “We have listened to the local community, and feedback from several consultation events last year were included in the plans.

The proposed development will bring real benefits to the wider community and will help alleviate the shortage of homes in the area, particularly affordable. Drake Park will create a thriving community with all the facilities needed for daily life.”

Details of the proposals and contact information can be found on the Drake Park website.
