Godstone Parish Council

Public Information

Godstone Parish Council recently reviewed two planning consultations lodged with Surrey County Council (SCC) for Mercers South Quarry, Bletchingley Road, Nutfield  (2019/0188 and 2019/0189). The Parish council have submitted comments stating that they STRONGLY object to the applications as they are extremely concerned at the proposed increase of HGV movements; with the proposed increase of a daily average from 150 to 300, doubling the daily average and an increase in the permitted daily maximum HGV movements from 240 to 350, because with such a significant increase in HGV traffic it will be to the detriment of the surrounding villages, Nutfield, Bletchingley and Godstone.
