SCC lodges Environmental Impact Assessment. What is an EIA? An EIA is prepared by a scheme's promoter to identify environmental issues, potential impacts and to identify actions that can be taken to avoid/mitigate the impacts.
Firstly, and fundamentally, the County Hall site is not designated for residential uses in the adopted statutory Development Plan. SCC pursue what are obviously very hurriedly prepared and ill thought through redevelopment ideas, and our residents are very concerned by what they have seen.
Surrey County Council has taken the decision to vacate County Hall and are commencing local consultation on the redevelopment of the site ahead of making a planning application to Kingston Council in early 2021.
