Please ignore our previous post on this extremely confusing action.
Protect Dunsfold LIMITED the RESIDENT’s group is seeking permission for statutory review supported by the Good Law Project.
Waverley Borough Council has also brought an action seeking a statutory review
And although it is the minerals authority and it was a SURREY COUNTY COUNCIL which was overridden, SCC hasn’t done anything and is leaving it all to others…..
The agricultural land in Dunsfold has been farmed by the same family for years but was bought recently by former Alfold resident Ashley Ward who is determined to get the cash registers ringing despite massive opposition from local people.
Fundraising through the ‘Good Law Project’ has already surpassed its £30,000 original goal and is now heading for more…
|Dear Waverley Web|
There has never been a more important time to do everything we can to protect the environment and preserve our precious local green spaces. We’re taking action now in Surrey.
We’re fighting to protect an important green space on the edge of Surrey Hills, an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that our families have enjoyed for generations, from a drilling project that could cause severe damage, and could open the door to future projects that will add to the UK’s carbon footprint.
We are proud to stand side-by-side with Protect Dunsfold. We have committed to funding this case and paying all of Protect Dunsfold’s legal costs. If you are able to, please consider donating to crowdfunding to support this case.
Our challenge centres on a decision by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing & Communities, under the leadership of Michael Gove, to overturn Surrey County Council’s initial refusal of planning permission. This is despite admitting it would cause “a significant level of landscape and visual impact.”
We believe there are a number of weaknesses in this decision. The Government did not properly consider the climate impact of unmitigated emissions from natural gas exploration and did not give sufficient weight to the need to conserve an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
With your support, we can protect Surrey Hills and the environment.
Director, Good Law Project
