Claygate Village Designation Statement
Claygate Village Character Appraisal
Following public consultation this document was originally adopted as Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG) by Planning Committee on 12 December 2000. However, due to staffing and resource limitations at that time, the document was not published. Due to changes in the planning system, conservation area appraisals can no longer be recognised as SPG but this will be a material consideration with regards to the implementation of the Elmbridge Local Plan as a basis for understanding the area, informing decision making and monitoring.
Claygate, Foley Estate
The Claygate Foley Estate Conservation Area was designated by Elmbridge Borough Council on 23 November 1994. The estate was built on land owned by the Hon Fitzalan Foley, who divided his land into 258 plots in 1885 and began constructing new roads through it. By the end of the 19th century many of the plots had been sold off for housing. Today the conservation area is characterised by its large detached and semi-detached Victorian and Edwardian houses, many of which incorporate decorative architectural features from the Arts and Crafts period.
