Where is the site?
Shelton Green is located within the highly sustainable location of Warlingham, close to the heart of the Village. Warlingham is a large and sustainable Tier 1 settlement area located within Tandridge and 14.2 miles south of the centre of London. The site is located less than 5 mins walk from Warlingham Village Green which hosts a number of local shops and amenities. The site comprises two parcels of land measuring circa 15 acres (6.06 hectares). The proposed access is located between 265 and 267 Hillbury Road with the majority of the homes proposed to be constructed on vacant land formerly known as Shelton Sports Club accessed off Shelton Avenue, Warlingham.
What is being proposed?
The site has been draft allocated as part of Tandridge’s emerging Local Plan 2033 for up to 192 residential units. The proposed development will be for 150 units with open space, play space, jog trim trail, ecology area and drainage area. The focus will be on much needed smaller 2 and 3 bedroom units for young families and downsizers.
How many homes will be affordable?
Being local Chartwell understand the importance of having affordable housing on site, therefore 40% of units will be affordable so locals can afford to be part of the fantastic community of Warlingham.
How many parking spaces will be on site?
The submission of a planning application will meet Tandridge’s parking standards which are highlighted below (taken from TDC Parking Standards SPD – SEPT 2012):
How does the local community benefit?
- Utilising well located vacant land for future family housing
- Focus on smaller 2 and 3 bed homes to meet the growing demand of young families and downsizers

Who have Chartwell spoken to?
The planning department are aware of the site as part of the draft Local Plan 2033. Local Ward and Parish Councillors have all been written to and close to 5,000 Public Consultation Information Leaflets have been sent to the local residents and businesses of Warlingham.
What surveys will accompany the application?
A number of survey will accompany the application including highways and transport reports, ecology report, drainage report and strategy, energy statement, tree report, heritage and archaeology report. Utility capacity checks have also been undertaken as part of the process.
Will I see the development?
A landscape visual assessment will accompany the scheme. The site has been selected out of hundreds considered by Tandridge. One of it’s fantastic merits is the location to the village centre and public transport but most importantly is the mature tree screening round the entire perimeter of the site meaning there will be little views into the site.
When will construction begin and how do I reserve a new home?
At the moment the development is in the early planning stages so finished house types and internal layouts are yet to be finalised. Upon receipt of a successful planning consent a construction timetable will be produced and additional reservation guidance will be provided on this site and on our website www.chartwellpropertygroup.com.
Will there be traffic and noise during construction?
The site is a huge 15 acres. As part of any planning consent, a construction Logistics Plan will be produced which will demonstrate how deliveries and staff working on the site can all be self maintained on the site.
