We the undersigned petition Surrey Heath Borough Council to stop the unauthorised expansion of an industrial site in rural Deepcut. More details

More details from petition creator

Behind Lakeside, Frimhurst Farm lies between the Basingstoke Canal & Deepcut railway in a rural area characterised by woodland & natural landscapes. It’s been severely disfigured by unauthorised expansion of an industrial site - now with over 40 “industrial lots”, comprising shipping containers, portacabins and other unsightly structures. Machinery, scrap metal and various industrial materials are stored on site.

Last year an explosion and fire required several fire engines and the cooling of 10 large propane cylinders – how close to a lethal disaster? Sewage overflow has contaminated the canal and tow path. Large numbers of trees have been felled and wildlife habitats destroyed. Heavy goods vehicles are adding to local congestion, air pollution and noise, even before the future traffic increases pending from new house-building.

We think this poorly regulated operation threatens the health, safety and well-being of the residents of Mytchett, Frimley Green & Deepcut. We call on the council to reverse the industrialisation of this area; to regularly inspect the site and preserve the intrinsic character of the area, as recommended in official SHBC plans.
