June 2017

Save Newlands Corner Campaign Group makes a statement about, and states its objections to, SCC’s proposals for artificial play structures

As promised in the post of 2nd June 2017, the Save Newlands Corner Campaign Group has produced detailed thoughts on the issues raised by the Surrey County Council Planning Application.

There are three documents (see the links below), which provide:

  • A statement of Save Newlands Corner Campaign Group’s views on Surrey County Council’s proposal for large, artificial play structures in the woodland at Newlands Corner;

Save Newlands Corner Statement

  • The reasons why the Campaign Group will be objecting to these, advice to others about how they can object and what needs to be taken into account.

Please note the 7th July 2017 deadline.

  • A copy of the flyer, which the Campaign Group will be distributing in the Guildford borough area.

Please let family and friends know about them.  If you wish to print copies out, you can also print on both sides of your paper and you end up with two A5 leaflets.

Please don’t let the fact that SCC received approval to place parking charge equipment on the Newlands Corner site deter you from objecting to this proposal.

Every single comment/objection made to The Planning Inspectorate in Bristol is vital for Newlands Corner!





A Planning Application for Six Large, Artificial Play Structures at Newlands Corner Has Been Put in by Surrey County Council !

Surrey County Council has applied to the Planning Inspectorate in Bristol for permission to place six large, artificial play structures on common land at Newlands Corner.  Details of the application are in the attached documents.  Our detailed thoughts on the issues will be on website in the next few days.

There is a deadline of 7 July for comment/objections on the proposals.

If you need to make representations urgently (e.g. going on holiday), before you do so, read part 4 of the additional attached document “Common Land Consents Policy”.  This indicates what should be taken into account by the inspector and so any representations should be based on these factors  – basically what benefits will these structures give to the neighbourhood, the population in general and for the Newlands Corner site. (We can’t think of any.)  And remember to include your name and address.
