Statement regarding proposed play trail at Newlands Corner following decision by the Planning Inspectorate

 

Surrey County Council Cabinet Member for Environment Mike Goodman said: “As the Planning Inspectorate has now told us a public inquiry into the educational play trail is needed, we have decided not to pursue this proposal at the moment.

“While we fully intend to revisit our plans for the trail at a later date because of its recreational, health and learning benefits, we are not prepared to spend around £30,000 of taxpayers’ money on an inquiry at a time when our budgets are under such severe pressure from the rising need for the likes of children’s services and adult social care.”
