Our campaign is funded wholly by donations from local residents and supporters who want to save our precious green belt at New Pond Farm. Reigate and Banstead BC submitted formal planning for a crematorium on this site without full engagement with the local community.
Funds raised help pay for the expert reports and legal advice required to submit detailed objections, objections must be based on material planning grounds and previous crematorium decisions. To date we have funded and submitted expert reports in relation to the 'Need' for a crematorium in this area, and Ecological impact. We anticipated legal advice will be necessary shortly and prior to presenting at the formal planning committee.
This is no ordinary planning application. This is our local authority wanting to build on our green belt, countryside, allotments and football pitches. If approved, we are concerned this will set a worrying precedent.
