Our Concerns Over the Surrey County Council (SCC) Response Letter

Further to our post of yesterday, we have now documented our concerns over the SCC response to the almost 1400 objections received by the Planning Inspectorate.

To read our document click here.

Click here to read our original post from 18th January 2016 regarding the Surrey County Council (SCC) response to Objections

The Inspectorate has not asked for responses, which it normally does.  It considers it has enough information.  However, if you wish to challenge the letter, the Inspectorate has confirmed that it would accept those letters.   However, it will not accept objections, evidence or comments from anyone who did not object by the original 21 October 2016 deadline.

If you wish to challenge the SCC letter, please send it to:

The Planning Inspectorate, 3F Hawk Wing, Temple Quay House, 2 The Square, Bristol, BS1 6PN.  Mr Rob Davis – rob.davis@pins.gsi.gov.uk

APPLICATION REFERENCE COM/3158795 – Commons Act 2006: Section 38.  Application to Construct Restricted Works on Common Land at Albury Downs (known as Newlands Corner), Surrey.

 

Surrey County Council (SCC) Responds to Objectors Letters

Nearly 1,400 people objected to SCC’s proposed parking charge infrastructure at Newlands Corner.  The Planning Inspectorate has now sent out a copy of SCC’s response to those who objected.  To those of you who have received it, please read it carefully.  It is what SCC does not say that is just as important as what it does say.  (Read a copy of the SCC letter and Planning Inspectorate covering letter by clicking the links below.).  Save Newlands Corner concerns are listed on the document linked below.

Dormouse and Bat Survey Summaries Released

Surrey County Council has released the executive summary of a recent dormouse survey completed by Danial Winchester of Surrey Wildlife Trust and the conclusions of a bat survey carried out by Wychwood Environmental.  These can be seen by cicking the link below.  We have been assured that the surveys have been properly completed and that they represent a professional view.  We have no evidence to doubt this.  SCC has withheld the full surveys as they pinpoint locations of animals found. SCC does not want to compromise the animals’ safety.  This is entirely reasonable, but we are pursuing obtaining copies of the surveys with the precise locations deleted.
