There have been many changes to our local Safer Neighbourhood Police Team. The biggest change is that Sergeant Simon Baxter left the Police Force on the 6th of January. We were sorry to hear this news and wish Sergeant Baxter all the best in his new career.
On the 29th of January the Ward Panel Police meeting will take place. We will be given the opportunity to meet the new Police Sergeant. The meeting will take place in Boardroom 1 of the Safari Hotel at the Chessington World of Adventures at 7pm. Everyone is welcome.
The application is for demolition of eight existing
residential dwellings and erection of 45 residential units with associated car
and cycle parking, landscaping and access works.
CDRA think the application
is far too big for this location where we already have severe traffic problems
on the A243. It is also a great shame
that such large family homes will be destroyed in what can only be seen as a ‘money
making’ exercise by the developer. There
will also be limited car parking spaces which will in turn mean that the
surrounding residential roads will be further encroached onto.
We will do our best to fight
the application. However, we know that
the RBK planning department have been working closely with the developer for
many months. Therefore, it will be hard
to get it refused. Particularly, as the
Council have large housing targets to meet.
You can object to the
application by clicking in comments. The
more objections there are the more likely we will be listened to.
Please note that the official date for objections is the 19th of December. However, you can still send in your objections by email to firstname.lastname@example.org until the final decision is made at the Development Control Committee.
The route that the planning application will take is that now it has been submitted to the planning department at Kingston Council, the Planning Officers will study it and decide whether or not to recommend acceptance by the Development Control Committee ( Date not yet notified).
Residents comments were heard at the Planning Sub-Committee on the 7th of January. Their comments will be passed to the Development Control Committee so that they can be taken into account when they make their decision.
