There's Longcross Garden Village plus, even nearer to Fairoaks
the proposed New Zealand Golf Course development (I understand they are willing to sell)
Plus the Martyrs Lane development which runs into the McLaren roundabout which in on Fairoaks boundery.
I'll change that to " MASSIVE over development"
There are also 1200 homes to consider at the Deepcut Barracks redevelopment named Mindenhurst, Deepcut. Although not on the Fairoaks doorstep, off-peak they are approx 20 minutes apart by car (although the time increases as they gradually lower the speed limits in the area!).
At peak times these developments might combine into the traffic flows of the feeder roads for M3 J3 or the A322 Bagshot-Guildford Road.
Quote from http://www.mindenhurst.co.uk/faq/
As part of the approval of the Hybrid Planning Application, extensive traffic surveys were completed to simulate traffic flows including those of the new development. As a result of this process various S106 works form part of the approval and will seek to mitigate the impact of the development.
Relevant Highways Improvement works associated with this development are:
• Works to red route/Maultway/Upper Chobham Road
• Works to Deepcut Bridge Road Railway Bridge
• Environmental improvements to Deepcut Bridge Road
• Works to Frimley Green Road/Sturt Road/Wharf Road
• Red Route/ A322 Roundabout improvements
• Works to Junction 3 of the M3
• Gole Road/Dawney Hill traffic signal works
From the Fairoaks Garden Village perspective, the above affect busy routes between Camberley/Frimley and Lightwater/M3 J3/ Brookwood/Knaphill//Chobham/Woking/Guildford (and beyond).
A Deepcut/Mytchett MP is predicting the disruption from the road developments will last for years.
(The last I heard the M3 Smart motorway developments were running at least a year late).
Also in the Woking area, 3500 houses planned for Woodham Lane by a traffic congestion black spot according to video news : http://www.getsurrey.co.uk/news/surrey-news/woodham-new-town-public-consultation-12552570
although the narrative says 1200 houses.
If that volume of traffic does not slow down the average speeds I will be amazed.
I wonder how low the speed limits will become near all these developments in the name of road safety that will also contribute to the congestion misery in years to come.
The locals might prefer to have Fairoaks Airport rather than a new garden village...
