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.
