Update from 26 October 2023 public meeting on Hersham Green Shopping Centre Campaign – and what you can do.

By | October 29, 2023

Well over 300 people turned out for the public meeting last week and this clearly shows that we can ACT TOGETHER TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE

So please Help – spread the word

– without exaggeration, the future of Hersham depends on us

A planning application is expected in November after which there will only be a small window for the public to make their comments – look at the details of the proposals and the likely impact on our village so you are ready to react when the application is submitted. Please keep your eye on social media and this blog page for more information when it becomes available.

In summary we feel the proposals we have seen http://www.hershamresidents.info/blog/wp-content/uploads/2023/10/Lego-model-at-public-meeting-26-10-23.jpg are likely to be be almost entirely negative for Hersham – the high density flats would be out of keeping with the village and result in more cars/ traffic – and at the same time
much less parking for shoppers, Burhill School and village events. Then there is this issue blight of the village centre during the works, after which Hersham will be a less attractive and less viable centre with less amenities, less shop space and no public toilets.

For further details watch this space – further information will be posted here when further details are known about the proposals, news of the forthcoming planning application or consultation arrangements.

The key time to act is when the planning application is received in November – but (in addition) if you want to do something now you can also send a letter of protest to
Adam Chalmers, Chief Executive Officer
Elmbridge Borough Council, Civic Centre
High Street, Esher, Surrey KT10 9SD
Or just email to:
