Littleton Lane - 2020 restoration campaign

LRA members have made it clear that traffic passing through Laleham, particularly HGV traffic, is a serious problem. There was an overwhelming feeling at our AGM last June that this is your number one worry and should be our number one concern.

Despite successfully petitioning for a traffic survey from Surrey County Council (SCC) in July 2016 we have had little success trying to make them respond to the results by reducing speed limits or introducing diversions or weight limits. We have, therefore, spent the last few months examining the source of the HGVs which travel through our village - and our investigations have produced some information of great concern.

Many of you are aware of the industrial estate which has developed on the gravel processing site at Littleton Lane. This industrial estate is a major source of HGV traffic in the area, cement trucks, skips and the like.

Initially we were pleased to discover that current planning conditions require the entire site to be shut down and fully restored to Green Belt by 2020. However, there is now an opinion at Surrey County Council that the industrial site has been allowed to operate for so long, it may be impossible to close it down - ever.

Thus an area of Green Belt, which was permitted to be worked on for the very special circumstance of gravel extraction, may have been mismanaged in such a way that it has developed into a permanent industrial estate.

In light of this worrying discovery, we have joined with Shepperton Residents Association and Charlton Village Residents Association and send a joint letter to our MP Kwasi Kwarteng. This is attached below.

In 2013 they raised the roof and then made a big hole in the floor with “Jack and the Upside Down Stalk”.

In 2014 they upset Paul Daniels but delighted Debbie McGee with “Dick and his Magic Cat”

In 2015 they excited animal crackers everywhere with “Aladdin and his Talking Monkey”

And in 2016 they shone an uncomfortable light on just a few of the ugly sisters of Laleham with “Cinderella through the Magic Mirror”
