Proposed Housing Development in Smallfield, Surrey.
A proposal has been put forward for a development of 88 new homes in Smallfield, the village on the outskirts of Horley in Surrey. Patrick McIntosh, the developer, has said that 75 of the homes will be ‘affordable’ with the aim of providing local people with the homes they need.
Below is a comment from Patrick McIntosh:
“As a member of the community here in Smallfield, I see first-hand the trouble that people are having in finding good-quality, affordable housing. Dowlands Park is for those who are ‘just about managing’, those who might work in education, healthcare and the emergency services as well as other jobs, and keep our village running.
“If we do not provide for them, they will be forced to leave the area, as well as their friends, family and potentially, their jobs. This is not good for anyone – without these important people, our community will not function, economically or socially. I think it’s vital that we stop relying on local councils to provide the homes we need, and look at how we as a community can help ourselves and our own residents.”
