Local business group supports application

Local business group, the Surrey Chamber of Commerce, have given their support to Alexpo and Network Rail Infrastructure's plans for new jobs, new homes, a brand new public square and a better traffic network at Hampton Court.

The local Chamber of Commerce support the improvements made to this version of the plans over the 2008 Gladedale proposals. They note that the scheme will create up to 125 new jobs for the site and that the local community will benefit from a new café, a new food store and an enhancement of "a community feel around the area". 

The Chamber says that "At a time when high streets are struggling and it is difficult to encourage people to spend time in centres, shopping and eating, this seems like a great opportunity to lift the locality around Hampton Court station."
