This time it’s ‘Your Surrey’ that’s dumping on ‘Cranleigh New Town.’ And.. Angry of Cranleigh is getting even Angrier!
The revelation that Surrey County Council is consulting/ has decided to close the Cranleigh Amenity Tip and recycling centre has gone down like … a bucket of sick! And that is underestimating the anger of residents of Ewhurst, Cranleigh and all the surrounding villages that use the site in Elmbridge Road in their droves!’
Just when your Surrey County Council publishes its policy on ‘Ways to reduce our carbon footprint’ – it decides to increase everyone’s carbon footprint by sending them off in their cars and vans to Witley or Guildford’s Slyfield Industrial Estate.
So The Protect our Little Corner of Waverley Group, which insists the roads across Dunsfold and Hascombe will be invaded by the inhabitants of Dunsfold Park, will now be invaded by thousands of Cranleigh residents and all those living in the surrounding villages as they make the short cut across to Witley! Right past the home of guess who?
The Rt Hon Jeremy Hunt Secretary of State for Health! Toot your horn on the corner of Markwick Lane, Hascombe and let him know you are on your way to Witley Dump!
Dumb (SCC) is definitely getting dumber by the day!
Here’s its latest Mantra. We have said it before on this site, we will, no doubt have good reason, to say it again…
YOU COULDN’T MAKE IT UP!
Surrey County Council’s policy: Ways to reduce carbon footprint
One of the most common ways to reduce the carbon footprint of humans is to drive less where possible travelling to a ‘close- by’ rather than far away destinations. Not only is a person going to save money on fuel, but they will be burning less and releasing fewer emissions into the atmosphere.
So what are residents’ threatening?
To dump all their rubbish at the gates of the tip on the day the site is closed. By lunchtime the road will be a seething mass of rubbish and the 50 tonne trucks will be forced to find another route onto Cranleigh’s ever-growing band of building sites.
Has anyone told Councillor Andrew Povey, the newly elected county councillor for Cranleigh and Ewhurst. If not start contacting him right now – let him notch up a victory by keeping the Cranleigh dump open or he might find himself dumped along with all th other superfluous household rubbish!
