Next entry: The Oxted Quarry

Previous entry: Sound Advice

Chalkpit Lane


The road is specked with chalk or lime that has fallen off the back of the lorries that trundle up and down this residential road in Oxted. The posters are advertising a council planning meeting tomorrow evening where the local residents are hoping to pressure the council to act and bring an end to the misery the families of this street face every day due to the increased activity by the local quarry company.

The email I recieved this afternoon reads:

Quarry Lorries

One Way Plan Rejected

The report to the Local Committee has rejected the proposed one way route
out of the quarry.  So the lorries will continue to be a problem for the residents of Oxted for a very long time to come.

Leader of Surrey Council, Nick Skellett, has said this is one of the biggest environmental problems he has seen in Surrey, but they are not going
to do anything about it!

The Extraordinary Meeting of the Local Committee is on Wednesday 7th May at 7pm at Oxted School in the Meridian Building.

We urge everyone who can, to attend the meeting to show that we do not accept the report and to demand action now to stop lorries using the residential streets of Oxted.

Lucky protesters may get to see our very own Pat “two votes” Frost. If we are lucky this time the tosser will remember whose interests she is supposed to represent and cast her two votes against the quarry company.
