There have been a few developments that have affected our intention to carry out the traffic survey near Chippings Farm.
The ACS International school has recently submitted a planning application regarding traffic management which means that they carried out a comprehensive traffic survey late last year. It is extensive and focused on our area of concern - Fairmile Lane and Portsmouth Road.
As a result the Cobham Green Belt (CGB) Committee discussed the whole subject of the traffic survey and have decided to review the ACS traffic survey report before proceeding with our own survey.
Should ACS International have their planning application approved then any survey we would have done would need to be repeated/remodelled to take this change in traffic flow into account; in other words, our findings would be redundant.
If the ACS application is not approved then we should review their survey, examine the reasons given for refusal and build this into our own survey.
The CGB Committee have therefore recommended that the traffic survey planned to be undertaken at the end of April 2014 should be postponed until later this year.
