Spelthorne Borough Council has called for a review of the activities at Surrey County Council’s Eco Park in Shepperton following a rise in concerns from residents.
The Chair of Spelthorne’s Overview & Scrutiny Meeting has agreed to hold an Extraordinary meeting to discuss the mounting number of complaints from residents worried about unacceptable noise levels and air pollution from the Eco Park.
The Council has said that it takes the matter extremely seriously and is keen to hear about the problems that residents have been experiencing and to thoroughly explore the issues. The meeting will hear from residents, Spelthorne Council’s Environmental Health team, Surrey County Council and operators of the site.
Deputy Leader of the Council and Portfolio Holder for Community Wellbeing, Cllr Maureen Attewell, said: “The number of complaints we have received recently about Surrey Eco Park is very worrying and we want to formerly look into the matter so we can get a good understanding of what problems the site may be causing residents and draw up plans to address them in conjunction with Surrey County Council.”
The meeting date will be published soon on the Council’s website and social media channels.
