Posted on Feb 11, 2019

The consultation on the application to restore Squerryes Sandpit has now closed. Please follow the link to view Westerham Town Council’s objection for which the Council took professional advice.

WTC planning comment

This is a very weighty document in which the major argument is that the pit (now a deep lake) must be filled in by importing by road via Biggin Hill or via Brasted and Sundridge to Beggars Lane 800,000 cubic meters of infill. From the Beggars Lane roundabout some 200 lorries a day would travel along a haul road, to be constructed between London and Croydon Road.  The project is expected to take some 6 years.

The consultation closing date was 22nd December 2018.  The documents can still be viewed at:
