Morrison's Weybridge Supermarket - Appeal For Action To Object

News Release From Weybridge Society - July 2013

 
WEYBRIDGE SOCIETY URGES ATTENDANCE AT THE MAIN PLANNING COMMITTEE MEETING TO DEMONSTRATE TO COUNCILLORS THE LEVEL OF CONCERN & TO WRITE A "LATE LETTER" TO ELMBRIDGE TOWN PLANNING.

A decision on the Morrisons’ application to build a food super store on the old Focus site is due to be made by Elmbridge Borough Council’s Main Planning Committee on Tuesday July 16. The attached Press Releases set out the Society’s major concerns about two important issues – the change in planning procedure and Surrey County Council’s flawed report on the traffic implications. The County Council objected to the previous Morrisons application on the risk of the store’s car parking creating a tailback on Monument Hill. The Society has made Official Complaints to both councils – to Elmbridge on the change in planning procedure and to Surrey on the County Council’s failure to address the traffic issues.

A very important input into the Planning Committee’s consideration of the application is the Elmbridge Planning Officer’s Report which recommends the committee to permit the application. It can be found as Item 4 of the agenda for the Main Planning Committee - click here .

The previous Morrisons’ application attracted the highest number of objections that the Society can recall. There is a very high level of interest in the present application with over 200 individual written objections plus a 100 signature petition.
Residents’ objections cover a range of issues including size, architectural style, additional traffic and lack of car parking provision and the impact on Weybridge shops. Many of the objections are applicable to both applications. Your Transport and Planning Panels have spent considerable amounts of time and effort examining Morrisons' proposals and submitting comments to Elmbridge. We should emphasise that there is no basic objection to a Morrisons’ store in Weybridge; we would have submitted identical comments if the proposals had come from any other named store.

The Transport and Planning Panels believe that both the Morrisons’ proposals are flawed in many aspects and although these have been specifically noted to Elmbridge Council (and by other individuals and organisations) many have not been taken into account or commented on.
Effectively they have been ignored and this has been exacerbated by the decision by Elmbridge to elevate the decision making process to the Main Planning Committee by- passing the West Area Planning Sub-Committee (WAPSC) where such applications are normally considered first.
WAPSC comprises 10 ward councillors, 8 of whom represent wards where if the development took place its residents would be directly affected. For the Main Planning Committee this level of directly affected ward councillors drops to less than 25%. This means that the most significant planning application that Weybridge has seen for many years will be determined by a majority of councillors whose wards are not directly affected by the proposed development.
We do not believe that this represents localism and we have written to Elmbridge clearly stating this view; Elmbridge’s Chief Executive responded that one of the reasons in going directly to the main committee is so that a broader view can be taken and the decision can be made within a target period!

We have written to Surrey County Council with a formal complaint that the Highways Department has produced a flawed and inadequate report on the effects of the proposed development on the road system within Weybridge.
Morrisons claim that there will be no additional congestion at peak times due the development and that the car park is adequate in size despite this being raised as the reason for rejection previously. This acceptance that the car park is adequate is highly surprising as the size of the newly proposed store is only 6% smaller than that proposed in the first application.
Surrey Highway’s report doesn’t mention the possible effects on congestion at all; and regarding the car park talks about a management system without addressing the basic issues of car parking accumulation and adequacy of spaces. On congestion we all have experienced the problems of queuing on Monument Hill at peak times, it occurs regularly and therefore it is not surprising that many residents find Morrisons claim incredulous- however Surrey is effectively supporting this claim through its silence.
We all know that a small increase in vehicles using the road can result in a disproportionate amount of congestion. We think this omission is negligent and have told Surrey so. Car parking spaces comparisons with other supermarkets show the proposed 220 spaces is insufficient by a factor of 100% or more. Lack of spaces will cause queuing on Monument Hill and divert cars to drive around and park in residential roads leading to further congestion as parking spaces are sought.

There are many other aspects that have been ignored during the whole process which lead us to feel that Elmbridge and Surrey are being “steamrollered” by Morrison, probably frightened by the Appeal that Morrisons has registered against the rejection of its first application.

So what can be done? Currently we are awaiting a reaction from our formal complaint to Surrey Highways evaluation. The application is due to be heard on July 16th and the Planning and Transport Panels are urgently studying the officer’s report and will respond before the Elmbridge Planning Committee meets.

As individuals we would urge you to attend the Main Planning Committee meeting to demonstrate to councillors the level of interest (7.45pm in the Council Chamber); and we would also encourage you to write a “late letter” to Elmbridge Town Planning, your ward councillors and those on the main planning committee expressing your views.

For your convenience we have prepared a list of some useful contacts and their emails.

We have not started a petition because it is understood that Elmbridge do not take petitions into account. Personal letters, phone calls etc. are far more powerful!

Weybridge Society Complaint Letter - Elmbridge Borough Council

 
July 2013
WEYBRIDGE SOCIETY PROTESTS ABOUT MORRISONS PLANNING CHANGE
WEYBRIDGE RESIDENTS DISENFRANCHISED CLAIM


The Weybridge Society has written to the Chief Executive of Elmbridge Borough Council
protesting against the “unprecedented” decision to move consideration of Morrisons’
application to build a food super store straight to the Main Planning Committee at its
meeting on July 16.

The normal procedure is that planning applications affecting Weybridge are considered by the West Area Planning Sub Committee which comprises 10 councillors representing
Weybridge and adjacent areas. The West Area Committee rejected Morrisons’ previous
application. Morrisons has launched an appeal against rejection of their first application.
The Society believes that this is designed to bring pressure on Elmbridge councillors to
approve the new application in case the rejected application is approved on appeal.

The Main Committee comprises 23 councillors from all the Elmbridge wards. As a result of this change there may not be any councillor at the meeting representing the ward in which the development is proposed.

In his letter to Rob Moran, Dave Arnold, Weybridge Society’s Chairman, says that the
change in procedure gave the impression that the Council wished “to force through this
application come what may”. His letter suggests that the Council’s decision is contrary to the Government’s drive for localism in dealing with planning issues.

The Weybridge Society would welcome a Morrisons’ food store in Weybridge on the former Focus site which needs development. The letter points out, however, that the proposed super store on Monument Hill is hugely significant. It impacts on the street scene at the eastern entrance to the town, and on the Conservation Area. The Society believes that it will greatly increase traffic and congestion. If approved, the development would require a new large roundabout on Monument Hill and the removal of a grass area and a listed plane tree.

The proposed development has created a high level of interest with over 200 individual
letters and a 100 signature petition opposing the application with 40 in support including some from outside Weybridge. The Society believes that such a high level of active interest  for a second application is unusual. Dave Arnolds’s letter comments: “It is therefore highly surprising and of major concern that the determination of such an application has been passed to the main planning committee. Whilst the council denies acting under pressure from Morrisons, the Company’s actions show that it is exerting great pressure on Elmbridge to decide on the application. So much for Morrison’s claim reported in the press recently of wanting to fit in in Weybridge”

Weybridge Society Complaint Letter - Surrey County Council

 
July 2013
WEYBRIDGE SOCIETY MAKES FORMAL COMPLAINT TO SURREY
SERIOUS CONCERNS ABOUT MORRISONS TRAFFIC IMPACT

The Weybridge Society has lodged a formal complaint to Surrey County Council over the Highways Authority‘s flawed assessment on the impact which Morrisons’ proposed food super store will have on traffic congestion in Weybridge. A formal complaint is the first stage in a process which brings a matter to the attention of the Local Government Ombudsman.

The Society has also lodged a complaint with Elmbridge Borough Council over the change the planning procedure.

The normal practice is that planning applications affecting Weybridge and its immediate neighbourhood are dealt with by the ten councillor strong West Area Planning Sub Committee. The West Area committee had rejected Morrisons’ first application on amongst other matters, traffic issues.
Elmbridge Council decided that Morrisons’ second application should go directly to the Main Planning Committee on which sit councillors from the whole of Elmbridge . Dave Arnold, Weybridge Society chairman, described the move, carried out apparently as a matter of convenience, as undemocratic.

He said: “As a result of this change there may be a no councillor from the ward in which the development is proposed adjudicating on the proposal. Weybridge residents are being disenfranchised”
A decision on Morrisons’ application to build a 6019 square metre food super store on the old Focus site on Monument Hill is due to be decided on July 16. As part of the development, which is close to the Monument Green Conservation Area, a large new roundabout will be built and a green space and a listed plane tree will be removed.

The main issue in Morrisons’ revised and much improved application is whether the superstore will lead to increased traffic congestion in an already congested town. Morrisons claims that it will not. The Society’s expert Transport Panel has examined the traffic implications in depth and believes that it will lead to serious congestion not least because, in order to survive economically, the store will have to attract a high proportion of shoppers from outside Weybridge.

Traffic implications are a key issue in determining the application. A report from Surrey Highways, which advises on traffic implications of development proposals, does not object the Morrisons’ application subject to conditions mainly relating to the management of the car park. The report is silent on the traffic impact on Monument Hill as well as at the other key Weybridge access points where congestion is already a serious problem.

In its Formal Complaint to David McNulty, Surrey County Council’ Chief Executive, the Society says that the information provided by the County Council on traffic is misleading and incomplete contributing to the possibility of an unsafe decision on Morrisons’ application potentially instigating to a judicial review.

The letter, points out that Surrey has relied on Morrisons’ figures on traffic flows rather than getting them assessed by an independent expert, it asks for an urgent senior management review. It accuses the Council of not employing best practice in assessing traffic flow, and failing in its duty of care to the residents of Weybridge because it has not expressed views on whether or not additional traffic will add to congestion.

Dave Arnold comments: “We are not against Morrisons, but are desperately concerned at the impact of this proposal. It is appalling that the traffic authority has no idea whether the development will lead to even higher congestion in Weybridge or not. Once the store is built and the new roundabout installed there will be no going
back. It is vital that the right decision is made”.

The Morrisons’ application has attracted nearly 200 individually written objections and a 100 plus signatures petition. There are about 40 letters in support.

Morrison's Weybridge Supermarket - Traffic Impact Concern

News Release From Weybridge Society - May 2013

 
WEYBRIDGE SOCIETY PRESSES SURREY FOR NEW EVALUATION  

The Weybridge Society has written to Christian Mahne, the newly elected County Councillor for Weybridge asking him to bring pressure on Surrey Highways to carry out a full evaluation on the traffic impact of the proposed new food store.

Surrey recommended that the previous Morrisons’ application was refused because of inadequate parking provision which could have led to queuing on Monument Hill. However, it did not comment on the effect of additional traffic on the road network. Because of that failure, the Society considers that Surrey’s traffic assessment, which was based on “flawed” traffic modelling from Morrisons, underestimated the impact.

The Society considers that traffic impact will be a crucial issue in deciding whether the development is approved. As the Highways Authority, Surrey’s advice will be the key.

The letter from Dave Arnold, the Society’s chairman, says that based on Morrisons’ own figures, the new store would increase traffic volumes on the Weybridge road network by about 15% at peak times. This would swamp a road network in which key junctions are currently operating at near or beyond design capacity.

Morrisons claims that the proposed store will not introduce any additional congestion in Weybridge. The Society’s letter challenges this commenting that Morrisons’ view “appears to fly in the face of the knowledge and experience of local road users”. The letter asks why all critical junctions in Weybridge have not been modelled by Morrisons particularly the junction at St. James Church which regularly operates at over capacity.

The letter also raises concerns about the short lead into the car park from Monument Hill Customer parking provision is the same as before and the Society believes this is inadequate. The combination of a short lead-in and inadequate car parking risks causing vehicle back up and gridlock on Monument Hill and in the High Street both of which form part of the A317 trunk route used extensively by the emergency services.

The letter points out that the majority of objections to Morrisons’ previous application was on traffic issues. It says that the Society is willing to meet with Surrey representatives to further explain concerns about the proposed development and answer questions.

The Society has made it clear that it recognises that the former Focus site needs to be developed and the benefits of Morrisons bringing its unique brand of food store to Weybridge. However, it has concerns about size (only 7% less than the previous proposal), traffic issues, parking and impact on local shops. It has urged Society members and residents to comment on the proposal to avoid Weybridge sleepwalking into a development which will have a major impact.

The planning application is expected to be considered by Elmbridge West Area Planning Sub Committee in June or July


The official deadline to comment on the plans is Friday, 17th May 2013.

Weybridge Society Recommends Against Public Speaking At Meeting

 
Meeting on Morrison's planning application - 15th October 2012
The Morrisons planning application is recommended by the planning officer for refusal.
Having discussed the subject of pubic speaking with a number of objectors the Weybridge Society has come to the conclusion that it would not be an advantage to request pubic speaking as only one person can speak and then it provides the developer the opportunity to reply.
The Society will be writing a late letter to support the planning officer recommendation and adding some additional requests to the Councillors.
We would like to remind you to attend the West Area sub committee meeting on 15 October and suggest that you may wish to write a late letter. You have up to noon on the day of the meeting to do this.

Morrison's Weybridge Supermarket Consultation

Deadline For Feedback To Morrisons Is Midnight on 24 May 2012.

 
Consultation on Morrisons plans for a large supermarket store in Weybridge.
 
A public exhibition of plans was held by Morrisons at Weybridge Hall on 10, 11 and 12 May to provide more information on their draft proposals and seek people's feedback.

If you were unable to attend you can view the exhibition boards in PDF format by clicking here.

On the website front page go to the bottom right hand side and click on Exhibition information to see the plans. At the top RHS you can access the Your Feedback form. All feedback forms must be sent to Morrisons by midnight on 24 May.  
To see the consultation website click here > www.morrisonsweybridge.co.uk  
   
Morrisons say they are keen to have the views of the general public, local businesses and community representatives.
The positive aspects of the plan Morrisons will be eager to project are:
- An investment of £3.5m.
- Creation of 300 jobs
- It will generate new business for High Street shops

The area to be occupied will be larger than just the old Focus site.
The plans involve much more than just a redevelopment of the existing site. They involve a number of other buildings along Monument Hill being demolished and the creation of a roundabout on the road.

Probable Public Enquiry
If the application makes headway, there will almost certainly be a public enquiry.
