For decades, Conservative led Spelthorne and Surrey Councils have regulated this site on our behalf and there have been many representations to councillors over the years about the distressing levels of HGV traffic emanating from Littleton Lane. The solution repeatedly offered has been restoration in 2020.
However, we recently uncovered information which suggests that this restoration plan is potentially unenforceable. It seems that either Spelthorne or Surrey may have had their eyes off the ball…
The JRAC met with Spelthorne and Surrey Planning Officers on 1st December. It was reported that Spelthorne BC had inspected the site in October and are in the process of investigating various anomalies. Surrey CC are meeting with Brett in December (17) to discuss their intentions and to request that they honour their agreements.
It was a useful exchange at which all parties stated their commitment to 2020 Restoration. However, the path is rocky and the future could lie solely with Brett, who own the site.
The JRAC will meet with both councils again in Jan/Feb and we expect regular meetings to follow until the situation is resolved. We will of course keep you updated.
