On Wednesday 26 February 2014, Surrey County Council gave planning permission to the new primary school proposed for Battlebridge Lane in north Redhill.
The proposal has been highly controversial, largely because of the lack of transparency over how the site was selected and the Councils’ extraordinary failure to communicate openly with local councillors and residents.
Last November, the Reigate & Banstead planning committee voted to object to the proposal because of the impacts it would have on traffic conditions and road safety in the area. Yesterday it was Surrey County Council’s turn – they are the decision-making authority for school developments.
