Development density exceeds 100 per hectare in 2006-7

Spelthorne Council's Annual Monitoring Report for the Local Development Framework shows that the average density for new builds of more than 10 homes was over 100 per hectare for the first time. This was up from a figure of just over 60 in the previous year. This figure is much higher than that for any other local borough and is an indication of the level of over-development we are experiencing.
