Below is some wording that you might like to add into your letters/emails. Please feel free to amend the wording and add in your own thoughts and comments.

Surrey County Council and Surrey Wildlife Trust propose developments at Newlands Corner including parking charges, trails, a coach park and large cafe/shop/visitor centre.  

I/We write to record a formal objection to the proposals and ask the Council not to go ahead. 

I/We believe Newlands Corner should remain an unspoiled open greenspace, without parking charges. It is part of our heritage and culture and not a marketable commodity.

(You may want to add your own experience of Newlands Corner and thoughts on the current proposals for parking charges, 10 adventure play sites and new building.)

If you support these changes to our countryside, please write and tell me why.

Yours sincerely
