The Surrey Draft Waste Local Plan 2018-2033 outlines facilities needed in the future to deal with business, domestic and civil engineering waste, including proposed locations and methods.

The plan lists nine proposed sites for waste facilities, that are either on or adjacent to Green Belt land:

  • Former Weylands Sewage Treatment Works (STW), Hersham
  • Land north east of Slyfield Industrial Estate
  • Land adjoining Leatherhead STW, Randalls Road, Leatherhead
  • Land west of Earlswood STW, Woodhatch Road, Earlswood
  • Land adjacent to Trumps Farm, Longcross
  • Land adjacent to Lyne Lane STW, Chertsey
  • Oaklead Farm, Stanwell Moor
  • Land at Lambs Business Park, Tilburstow Hill Road, South Godstone
  • Land at Martyrs Lane, Woking

According to the plan, between three to six of the above locations could be used for "energy recovery". Environmental activists claim this term is used to indicate incineration.

The draft plan highlights up to six sites for "energy recovery". Should this include incineration, the chimney plume of such plants can contain pollutants which have the potential to damage the environment and human health, including the production of the dioxins, acid gases, nitrogen oxides, heavy metals and particulates. The cleaning of the flue gases is an essential part of a modern incineration facility to reduce any emissions into the atmosphere to a level that meets the safety standards established in the Waste Incineration Directive. Additionally, once an incinerator is built it needs a steady input of waste to feed it. The plan refers to importing waste from London to support the operation of such waste management facilities.

  • NAG submits response to Southern Pipeline consultation

    Normandy Action Group submitted its response to the Southern Pipeline corridor Option M & Q proposals as they affect land surrounding Flexford, Normandy and Wanborough. The response highlights that the consultants appear to have failed to take account of the local landscape designations of Area of Great Landscape Value [AGLV] and Site of Nature Conservation Importance [SNCI] in drawing the north and south boundaries of the Option M & Q corridor.

    Any pipeline laying towards the southern corridor boundary is likely to drive a wide swathe thorough the AGLV land that stretches north from the A31 down the northern slopes of the Hogs Back to Flexford Road; any pipeline laying towards the northern corridor boundary is likely to have a severe impact on the woodlands to the west of Normandy ward.

    The content of the response is available on the NAG web site

     
  • Housing proposal at Palm House Nurseries refused

    The planning application for six 2-bed houses [18/P00470] on the site of the former Palm House nurseries, that would result in the demolition of the existing horticultural building, has been refused.

    The officer report maintains that the "proposal would not constitute a sympathetic development but would result in the erosion of the agricultural and rural character of the site and surrounding area and would therefore fail to respect the established pattern of development within the area". 

     
  • Article 4 Direction compliance at Wanborough being tested

    Guildford Borough Council [GBC] has to decide whether to confirm the Article 4 Direction within 6 months of it first being served. A report is being drafted which, it is understood, is likely to propose continuation indefinitely. It will go before a planning committee meeting, probably at the end of June. The large number of representations sent by residents to Tim Dawes, Planning Development Manager at GBC has, it appears, ensured there will be a recommendation to continue.
