Works will commence on the 4th of August with an expectation of completion within three weeks.  Extended working hours and weekend working will be used to expedite the works.  click here for further details

Chobham Common/DERA North Development Questionnaire

Surrey Wildlife Trust is working close with Imperial College to look at the impact of potential developments (DERA for example) around Chobham Common and is encouraging as many users and user groups to complete this survey, which should only take a few minutes.

They would appreciate it if you could complete the survey as they need as much weight as possible to strengthen their argument against any future developments.
