NOTE THAT UNDER THIS CONSULTATION TANDRIDGE COUNCIL IS CONSIDERING THAT THE VILLAGES OF NUTFIELD AND SOUTH NUTFIELD ARE RECLASSIFIED AS 'INSET' AREAS WHICH WILL INVOLVE LOSS OF EXISTING GREEN BELT STATUS.

Additional sites were submitted by developers too late for consideration in the 2016 Consultation and has now led to a new 'Garden Village' vision being agreed;
See >TDC Garden Village strategy - March 2017

We continue opposition to Gatwick route 3 which directs planes over Nutfield at heights below 4000ft. See below the CAA record showing the altitudes of aircraft flying over the village on this route during 2013 and 2014. This shows during these years 50% of aircraft flew below 4000ft.
See the NCS submission made to the Civil Aviation Authority requesting a full review regarding the changes made to this route following the implementation of RNAV technology > Route 3 CAA Submission - November 2016
See also a response from The Dept of Transport regarding a planned reduction in costs for Gatwick night flights which will undoubtedly lead to an increased volume of these flights VIEW: Dept of Transport response - LGW Night Flights

Earlier this year the Society carried out a review of the >Issues & Approaches document issued by Tandridge under the Regulation 18 Consultation see >NCS letter Feb 2016
The Society had particular concerns regarding the methodology being used to reclassify Green Belt within the area and our submission focused on these concerns.
We are now reviewing the revised Sites document forming the current consultation which commenced on 4th November 2016.
