Battlebridge primary school: decision day 26 Feb

The controversial proposal to build a primary school on Battlebridge Lane will go to Surrey County Council planning committee tomorrow, Wednesday 26 February.

A number of residents have asked for advice about how to attend and object.

The meeting will be held in the Ashcombe Room at County Hall, Penrhyn Road, Kingston-upon-Thames, KT1 2DN. Directions to County Hall can be found here:

The meeting starts at 10.30am.

Who can speak at the meeting?

Up to five residents can speak, for up to three minutes each. Only those who sent written submissions are eligible to speak and you can only speak about issues you raised in your submission – you can’t introduce new topics.

If you would like to speak, you need to register by 12 noon today (Tuesday 25 Feb) – phone 020 8541 9075 to register.

I have registered to speak (local councillors don’t have any separate rights to speak over and above other residents).

The applicant – Surrey County Council – can speak for as long as the objectors.

New traffic and transport assessments

Last November, the Reigate & Banstead Borough Council planning committee objected to the proposal on the grounds that it would adversely impact on highway conditions and safety in the area.

Since then Surrey County Council has commissioned a further assessment of the traffic impacts and has produced a travel plan for the school. You can see these on the Reigate & Banstead website here (or search for application 13/01841/CON on the RBBC planning site).

The five documents uploaded on 7 Feb are the new travel and traffic related ones.

For background on this application and the reason why your local councillors, and many local residents, have objected, see these previous articles:
