Further to the article published on this Site on 4th July, Solicitors were instructed by LOSRA to write to the Secretary of State for the Department of Communities and Local Government to refuse the application for the Eco Park development; or to call it in for his determination.
In this we have been jointly funded and supported by the Charlton Village Residents Association (CVRA)and Shepperton Against The Eco Park (SATEP).
The letter offers robust grounds for the SoS's refusal and readers are invited to view the (emailed) copy of this letter click here.
On our instructions the Solicitors have also written to the Head of Legal Services at Surrey County Council. To view this letter, click here.
Readers may already be aware that our local MP, Kwasi Kwarteng, has secured a debate in Parliament on the Eco Park. He has tabled an adjournment debate on Monday 5th September in the House of Commons which should last about half an hour. Kwasi will make a speech on the subject to which Eric Pickles or a junior minister from Dept. Communities and Local Government will respond.
All is by no means lost.
