Question

You will be aware of the significant housing development at Cane Hill, on Land formerly under your control. There are serious concerns about the proposed road scheme. Will you instruct TfL to look again at permitting an access road directly from Farthing Down, thus alleviating strain on the main access road?

TfL reviewed the planning application and transport assessment in 2014. It submitted a report to me which concluded that a new junction on the A23 was not necessary or appropriate, and that a new access in such close proximity to the existing access would undermine the operation of the existing network. The proposal to provide a new access across Farthing Down would also require development on Green Belt land and this was not considered appropriate.
