Vil­lage green hopes dashed by coun­cil

Egham News - - NEWS - MOLE­SEY:

An ap­pli­ca­tion to gain vil­lage green sta­tus for land at Mole­sey Hurst has been re­jected by Sur­rey County Coun­cil’s Plan­ning and Reg­u­la­tory Com­mit­tee.

Sub­mit­ted in Oc­to­ber 2011, the ap­pli­ca­tion was sup­ported by 133 state­ments from res­i­dents, who pro­vided ev­i­dence of recre­ational use of the land at the meet­ing on Novem­ber 18.

It was re­jected by Elm­bridge Bor­ough Coun­cil in Jan­uary 2012 and Joanna Mor­timer, of Sur­rey County Coun­cil’s le­gal and demo­cratic ser­vices rec­om­mended the com­mit­tee re­ject the ap­pli­ca­tion, as it did not prove that res­i­dents were us­ing the land ‘as of right’ but rather al­ready had law­ful use of the land.
