Jason Debney, Co-ordinator Thames landscape Strategy, will give an overview of TLS projects with local impact, including an update on the proposals for the Weybridge Point car park, a TLS project that secured funding of £70k+ from Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) funds in March this year.
Let’s be sure that proposals do actually enhance the riverside scene. Click on the PPDRA Newsletter below to see how things do not always work out for the best
Doors open at 7.30 pm, with the talk starting at 8.00 pm.
Proposals for this key site in Cobham have been around for a number of years. This evening members of the West Area Planning Committee were presented with a planning application for the conversion of the White Lion Hotel into flats, the demolition of the Cobham Lodge Hotel and the erection of 50 dwellings on the site.
The vote was six in favour of the application and only one against. Our Liberal Democrat councilor Cllr Andrew Davis felt that although the new application was far more sympathetic to the historic site than the previous planning applications it did not go far enough to protect this symbol of Cobham’s heritage.
Clothes+ is a charitable collection service for unwanted items, which the borough runs in partnership with the British Heart Foundation. So far, in 2014 the borough has passed on 22 tons of items for the BHF to sell in their shops and there’s another cycle of collections this September. There is also a free reminder servicefor Elmbridge burghers and other residents.
The planning professionals at Elmbridge and Surrey have given their recommendation for the borough to permit the development of a new Morrisons in Monument Hill. In precise terms “… it is considered that this scheme be recommended for planning permission… “. Have a read of their report (Morrisons 2013-1611) and tell me what you think.
Twenty-three people will meet on Tuesday at the civic centre at 7:45 to decide whether to permit this scheme or not. Other options are available too – to permit with further conditions or to delay pending further report backs. It is the biggest single development in the town centre for many years.
Following concerns that modern lampposts are being installed in Monument Green, I have gained assurances from Surrey staff that five heritage lampposts are to be installed shortly. Their locations are marked in yellow on the map below.
