In order to effectively fight this application for huge motorway junction style warehouse and industrial units on the open land used for centuries by the public as common land between the River Wey Navigation and Byfleet Road we need expert planning input and advice.

33ft high buildings as well as being unsightly will totally shade gardens and adjacent houses.

We have the support of our local ward councillors to oppose this development.

The proposed development site has many features which should make approval of planning impossible but we need to make good planning arguments to stop the scheme.

A previous application in 2019 was withdrawn after our planner's letter was submitted.  Whilst there have been some changes to the plans these do not make it any more acceptable.

You can also protest directly to Runnymede Council Planners RU.21/0207  planning.runnymede.gov.uk 

We need to fight the development on the basis of - unsuitable development on land subject to flooding, noise and air pollution.  Dangerous increases to traffic in an area already at capacity.

The Rive Ditch has already flooded at least 3 times in the last five years flooding neighbouring gardens and reaching houses

The development will increase flooding risk to properties.  

The field itself is totally waterlogged for most of the winter.

Ecological habitats with endangered species will also be destroyed.
