WWW comments will go to the Inspector, but the Parcel Depot is back.

‘Which Way Westerham’ and the Local Plan
The Regulation 19 Public Consultation on the Local Plan is now closed. Thank you to all those who contributed comments. The Submission Version of the Plan is likely to go to the Inspector in March.

Moorhouse Super Parcel Depot
Roxhill Developments Ltd are back with a revised application for the super parcel depot at Moorhouse (ref 2018/1792/1). They have slightly reduced the height of the proposed building and the number of car parking spaces and made some cosmetic changes to the landscaping, but the footprint of the site is the same. This is still an inappropriate development in the Surrey Hills AONB and on Green Belt land. The traffic problems that this development would cause will not be mitigated in any way. There will be 200+ delivery vans per day, and quite possibly more.

The consultation is due to end Wednesday 20th February. Please write now to comaps@tandridge.gov.uk , quoting the Reference Number 2018/1792/1.

The Squerryes-backed press statement of 30th October 2018, appeared to be arguing the opposite case, ie that the work was actually needed “… progressive failures of the slope could pose a risk to the integrity of the M25, which is 60m north of the site’s boundary…”.
