Further to our announcements in the recent newsletter and previous articles on this Site (see 6th & 15th December), a Special Planning Committee is to be held this Wednesday at the Council Chamber to consider a proposal for the permanent retention of the existing waste management facilities at Charlton Lane with a modification to the existing site access arrangements and erection of an acoustic fence. The success of this application will be a precursor to the application for the installation of the 'Eco Park' if the opposition of local residents is to count for nothing.
In the event of Planning Committee approval, the application to retain waste facilities will then be determined by Surrey County Council at its Planning and Regulatory Committee on 12th January 2011. On the same date the Planning Committee at Spelthorne, as statutory consultees, will consider the application for the installation of the 'Eco Park'.
The timing of the Special Planning Committee could not come at a more inconvenient time for local residents who will be preoccupied with family affairs and festive preparations. Nevertheless all residents who find themselves able to take a couple of hours from their busy days, are urged to attend.
