Here’s mine.

As stated in the planning portal. This is HM Gov policy.

There is absolutely no reason whatsoever to grant this application. It is questionable whether it should even be considered by the Reigate and BansteadBC.

This is not a major new development and in not in a Local plan. The applicant is purely trying to purchase the land cheap and then establish planning permission on it.

This is practise should recognised for what it is. A commercial firm trying to save money buy not using a Brownfield site. Which, there are many. One example is that Fire station on the A217. Which, is being suggested is surplus to requirements?

This set aside. The additional traffic that would be created would not allow for the normal Village High Street to function. I highly doubt that the mourners would relish sitting in a traffic jam in a Hearse. A commercial firm being required to utilise assets fully. This would easily create additional 300-400 car journey a day to and from the site.

The location of the proposed Crematorium just opposite Sunrise Residential Care home is unbelievably crass.

I believe the application should be rejected. With the advice, that this site it not appropriate for the business that the applicant wishes to use it for.

  1. Mrs. M Hennessy says:

    I strongly object to the proposal for a cemetery in Croydon Lane. Firstly because this is greenbelt land, and as such should not be developed in any way.
    Also the effect of the extra traffic would be horrendous. Croydon Lane is a narrow road which already carries far too much traffic.
