Working for our Community

WPC on 11/03/2022 at the Great Barn, which was attended by five local MPs to offer their support to the proposed AONB boundary extension; the meeting was also attended by four GBC councillors, Surrey Hills AONB Board members and local press.  The MPs were Angela Richardson (Guildford), Jonathan Lord (Woking), Jeremy Hunt (Southwest Surrey), Chris Grayling (Epsom & Ewell) and Claire Coutinho (East Surrey). Oscar de Chazal presented a summary of the AONB submission by WPC and compelling photographs of the damage to the lower Wanborough Fields, comparing those from 2018 to those today. Oscar concluded with a call for stronger enforcement powers to be given to local authorities and for greater action to be taken against landowners who ignore planning rules. The Leader of GBC, Joss Bigmore, has previously stated that the Fields should be returned to their original natural state.
