 New - message from Surrey Crimestoppers 

Drink driving, do something this festive season about someone you know who regularly drinks and drives

Remember the independent charity Crimestoppers offers a safe and secure way of passing information anonymously about relatives, colleagues, friends and acquaintances that routinely drink and drive that you have never done anything about in the past. There is no excuse for driving while over the limit but there remains a small minority who refuse to believe that the law applies to them.

 

What should you do? 

Call 999 if they are in the car and about to set off.  

Call 101 if you want to talk to the police about a driver and his habitual drink driving. 

Call Crimestoppers if you don’t want anyone to know it was you that was brave enough to put a stop to a consistent drink driver and use the safe and secure guarantee of anonymity that the independent charity Crimestoppers offers using its 0800555111 number or online form at wwww.crimestoppers-uk.org

Village Oak, Village Green, The Street

The Parish Council have a duty of care with respect to the management of the large oak tree on the village green by The Street. 

Accordingly the tree has been inspected by an Approved Arboricultural Consultant. 

Owing to the number of defects found, work will be carried out on November 6 & 7th to abate future risk to the public. This will entail a major crown reduction. A replacement tree to be planted on the village green has been recommended  in order that there is a continued presence of an oak tree here.

Planning application for the Drift Golf Club, The Drift, East Horsley - in Ockham Parish but affecting West Horsley residents - deadline extended for SCC, you can give your views until after Christmas

 

The Drift Golf Club Proposed Waste Landfill Site {GBC Planning Application 14/P/01718 and Surrey CC ref 2014/0150}

There is a planning application on the GBC and SCC websites which is aiming to gain approval for a large amount of material to be brought into the Golf Club to raise the level of the driving range. This has a number of implications:

- Waste will be brought from outside the village to the Drift Golf Club which will effectively become a waste landfill site, situated close to a number of rural villages.

- There will be a 7.5 ton HGV lorry passing through the Drift every 10 minutes, during working hours (and including the school run) for 9 months.

- There is a real risk that even though there will be restrictions over the routes that the lorries take, the hours that they are allowed to operate and their frequency, that once the project starts, these conditions will not be adhered to, making the reality even worse than what is stated in the planning documents. This has happened previous with Jury Farm, Ripley Lane.  

If you are concerned about this planning application, you are recommended to write or email Surrey County Council with your reasons for objecting. Please also provide your name and address.   

West Horsley Parish Council has submitted a detailed objection to both GBC and SCC in relation to this planning application - you can view this by clicking on the link below and locating WHPC's letter on 28 October 2014
