I was impressed by the second presentation and consultation event held in July for the potential development at the Brookwood Farm site in Knaphill. It was my impression that concerns raised in the first consultations had been listened to.
I raised one concern at the second consultation regarding the design of pedestrian access for the site, in particular the path leading through Grindstone Handle Corner. My concern, echoing concerns raised by residents to me, was that if pedestrian access to Knaphill passes through Grind Stone Handle Corner, it would likely emerge as the most popular pedestrian access due to the other pathways that are immediately accessible from it via Grindstone Crescent and Bagshot Road via Ivydene, making it the most direct route to the centre of Knaphill. This would create a route that I do not feel Grindstone Handle Corner could or should sustain. It is my hope that at the next stage of the development, this concern will have been absorbed into the design, removing the potential issue in Grindstone Handle Corner.
