Why do it?

Why this is the best land use?

  • The borough has a shortage of up to date housing for older people and no current plans to provide such housing
  • Extra care independent living communities are the key to the future – recommended by the national government, the NHS and Surrey County Council
  • Mums, Dads and Grandparents should be able to enjoy their retirement in their local area
  • Within Epsom and Ewell there are over 3700 people aged 65+ living alone. Loneliness is an issue for many of them
  • Abbeyfield extra care housing will provide rental and purchase options for the less affluent people within the borough
  • The sports fields should be open all year round and for all of the community
  • We have worked to find alternative sties and there is no better site than this available.
