The Committee of the Surrey Dormouse Group has concerns regarding this proposed development of Newlands Corner.  They say that, aside from the destruction of the varied habitat immediately surrounding the current car park area, the planned development at Newlands Corner will have an adverse effect on the dormouse population, both in the short term with work being carried out but also in the long term, specifically with the introduction of the planned play trails and the resulting increased disturbance.  These concerns have now been raised with Surrey County Council and we await their response.
