East Surrey has a total population of approximately 360,900. This represents some 148,000 households. East Surrey is in some ways a victim of its own success as it is an attractive place to live for a number of reasons. The Government forecasts that the number of households is set to rise by 19.2% between 2004 and 2026. The close proximity to central London, strong transport links, low crime and good schooling are amongst the factors that have contributed to house prices rising by over 36% in the last five years to an average of £355,431.
The East Surrey authorities are situated in one of the UK’s most affluent counties. With close proximity to London, a dynamic economy, immediate proximity to two of the world’s largest international airports of Gatwick and Heathrow, frequent rail connections to London and a comprehensive road network including the M25 and M23. Consequently a number of multi-national companies, for example Exxon Mobil, Unilever and Pfizer are situated in the East Surrey study area due to the proximity to Europe and excellent transport links.
There is a strong concentration of knowledge based industries in the area. These include electronics, advanced engineering, aviation, pharmaceuticals, business services and finance.
