Epsom town centre has lost "vision" says group

A group worried that Epsom town centre has "lost its vision" has submitted a petition objecting to any further high density housing developments.
Campaign group Friends of The Parade gathered 452 signatures which they handed over to Epsom and Ewell Council on Monday, May 21.
The petition said: "We, the residents of Epsom, wish to object to further high rise density housing in our town. New developments around the station in the town centre are damaging our town and incompatible with the market town image.
"In 2005 Epsom was voted the best place to live in the UK on television. In 2011, we were no longer anywhere near the top of the list."
A spokeswoman for the group says it wants potential new developments, such as that of the old Epsom police station site, to be considered in light of its objections.
