EVIDENCE NEEDED by Task Group for Dumps – sorry – CRCs

EVIDENCE NEEDED by Task Group for Dumps – sorry – CRCs

EVIDENCE REQUIRED TO SAVE OUR DUMP! – sorry – Community Recycling Centre

We must prove somehow that we need the centre more than previously measured!  We must learn to use it for just recycling! So instead of just avoiding it or being even more careful with our lives and rubbish, we must present some evidence to keep it open!  Can you?  If so please send it to us and we will go to County Hall with the evidence! Or send straight to Cllr Andrew Povey Surrey County Council

We used to call it the dump – you know that place at the end of Elmbridge Road where the kind people helped us all with any kind of stuff we needed to get rid of.

Whether we are people helping old folk, our families or just clearing out the garage – we all need to clear out sometimes.   

Surrey County Council discovered that ours is one of 4 in Surrey that isn’t used as much as all the others.  They think they should just close it and save the money. 

Petitions, letters and conversations helped to get this postponed – so what now?

Surrey County Council Councillor Andrew Povey is Chairman of a task group. It is  tasked with finding out and reporting on the issues of the Community Recycling Centres around Surrey.

He has written to many interested parties to invite evidence around the CRCs.  He can, in due course, forward some of the paperwork to Cranleigh Society. 

If Cranleigh Civic Society would like to give evidence to the task group he can ensure that we are invited to County Hall to present the evidence. 

thank you!!!

Cranleigh Society News 9 Feb 2019

Soon – What would YOU ask MP Anne Milton when she next comes to Cranleigh?  Flood forum – Friday 22nd March  10.30am Band Room – VERY Important YOU attend. We will provide information sheets and hope to sort out the lack of microphones by then for the Band Room. Let us have your worries and questions please.

Surrey County Council consultations – so here’s the thing – our democracy requires many things such as hard working officers working for the community and elected Councillors, such as consultations – when they get to points where they can see a large impact on communities – and they have to count them and take their views into account. So if we don’t write in etc. we don’t count!!! Please go onto the Website for Surrey County Council consultations and read what they have put up. BTW – if ever you can’t – please go to the library and ask for help with the computers there – it’s your right and this too could be taken away if not used enough.

Cranleigh Parish Council – all public are welcome to their meetings – and there is a moment in those meetings when the councillors are free to discuss matters more openly when the public are excluded – reasonably. Local planning applications are considered by members of the Planning Committee on a three weekly basis.  The Planning List of planning applications to be considered by the Committee is displayed at the Council Offices. Look at their web site – meetings for dates – they change!

There are twelve Parish Councillors who take an active part in village life and who are elected to represent the community. The Council has adopted a Business Plan for the period 2019 – 2023 which can be viewed here.  CPC looks after many amenities – Snoxhall fields, village Hall, Cemetery, Allotments, and also lists information about ROAD CLOSURES, REPORTING FLOODING, DEFIBRILLATOR, FIRST RESPONDERS.

Cranleigh Neighbourhood Plan is up for reading and commenting up – please see their web site – click the top tab Neighbourhood plan, then Draft, then Regulation 14 consultation!

Subject: Surrey Waste Local Plan: Publication of Submission Plan for representations

Visit www.surreycc.gov.uk/newwasteplan and complete the questionnaire. Views need to be submitted by 24 February 2019.

Last month, Surrey County Council’s Cabinet approved Surrey’s new Waste Local Plan for publication. We are required to produce the plan which contains planning policies and potential sites for new facilities to manage the county’s waste.

Before it can be adopted by the county council, it now has to be submitted to the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government and examined in public by an independent planning inspector.

Residents and businesses together with all other stakeholders, including districts and boroughs, now have a final opportunity to comment on our Submission Plan, and have their views considered by the inspector. To do this they can visit www.surreycc.gov.uk/newwasteplan and complete the questionnaire. Views need to be submitted by 24 February 2019.

We are running a communications campaign on digital channels to reach residents and encourage them to share their views on the proposed plan. Please do encourage residents, businesses and stakeholders to feed in their views.

We are encouraging representations to be made online where at all possible. Nevertheless there is the opportunity to submit representations by email or in writing. Hard copies of documents will be available at district and borough offices and by calling 03456 009 009 or texting 07860 053 456.

For more information, please visit the Minerals and Waste Planning Policy webpage for the new waste plan: www.surreycc.gov.uk/newwasteplan. Or if you wish to contact an officer in the Minerals & Waste Policy Team please email wasteplan@surreycc.gov.uk and they will get back to you.

They are proposing to close the Cranleigh Recycling Plant 

– Do you want to drive to Witley with YOUR Rubbish ?

The Council has already carried out one Consultation on their Recycling Centres Plan (Rubbish Tips) and in all 3 Alternatives they proposed to close the Cranleigh Centre.

That Consultation finished on January 4, 2019. However they held a Cabinet Meeting on December 18, 2018 to finalise their proposed Waste Plans,

so they obviously did not take into account some of your comments on closing our tip.

It is important that you now send your comments on the proposed Surrey Waste Plans.

So please look at their Plan on : www.surreycc.gov.uk/newwasteplan

The deadline for sending your comments is February 24, 2019.

Please send your comments by email to : wasteplan@surreycc.gov.uk

or by post to : Waste Planning Policy, Room 385, County Hall, Kingston. KT1 2DW.

PLEASE make your points on how our Waste Policy should be protected, in this time of massive Council cuts.



MP Anne Milton will conduct the next Flood Forum meeting on 12th October 2018 10.30 to 11.30 in the Band Room – the public are welcome to come and raise issues.

If you can’t attend please let us know your questions by commenting on this post or alternative email us your questions and we will send them on to Anne in advance.

Who will be there?  Anne invites representatives from many public bodies including Surrey County Council (highways) Waverley Borough Council (Planning) Environment Agency (statutory advisory body) Thames Water (drinking water and sewage disposal).

It may feel strange to consider the problems of flooding after the unprecedented dryness of this year.. However, flash floods caused by heavy downpours are a really possibility. Furthermore if we get a period of sustained heavy rainfall there be flooding as usual.

You are invited to the meeting, and also to arrive early for informal chats and coffee provided by Cranleigh Civic Society.

In addition, if you would like to join us afterwards at the Three Horse Shoes, please do!  We are planning to have a bite to eat and continue with our friendly conversations.  We look forward to seeing many of you.

RSVP or send questions to: membership@cranleighsociety.org
