Surrey County Council (SCC) has submitted proposals to the Planning Inspectorate (PINS), under section 38 of the Commons Act 2006, to carry out the following works on common land at Newlands Corner:
· erect six large, artificial play structures in cleared areas of the woodland along what is currently the all-ability trail - to be called the ‘Family Play Trail’;
· place eight magnifying/brass rubbing posts along the trail;
· re-surface the trail
· erect temporary security fencing and, perhaps, temporarily close the trail
The second and third items do not require PINS consent, but have been included in SCC’s application to give a complete picture of this part of its project.
The deadline for comments and objections is 7 July 2017
Details of the application and how to make a representation by 7 July are on the Save Newlands Corner website including access to documents.
They will be distributing a leaflet in the Guildford borough area which reflects the Campaign Group’s position.
