Surrey County Council is inviting views on a pre-planning application proposal for a new Gypsy, Roma and Traveller transit site in the Tandridge district.
Surrey County Council has been working closely with Surrey Police, the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPPC) and district and borough councils to meet Gypsy, Roma and Traveller needs and to reduce the impact of unauthorised encampments across the county. This proposal, to create ten short term stay accommodation pitches on land adjacent to the permanent Gypsy, Roma and Traveller site at Pendell Camp, Merstham Road in the Tandridge district, is a key part of the joint strategy.
Views are invited on the draft proposal, before a formal planning application is submitted. Comments will be considered and reflected in the application when it is submitted to Surrey County Council later this year.
More information and the consultation survey is available until 8 October 2021 at https://www.surreysays.co.uk/iai/pendell-camp-merstham-road-proposal/.
