Reigate MP Opposes Hard Runway at Redhill Aerodrome
Reigate MP, Crispin Blunt, has lodged his formal opposition to the planning application for a hard runway at Redhill Aerodrome.
In a joint letter with fellow East Surrey MP, Sam Gyimah, Mr Blunt says that he feels there are no special circumstances to justify the development of the green belt in this area.
Urging the rejection of the hard-surface runway, the letter also states that such a plan would have a detrimental effect on the landscape and would increase noise and light pollution in the area.
The planning appeal will be heard in January 2014
East Grinstead has recently seen an increase in thefts of catalytic convertors.
Police are warning vehicle owners in the area to remain aware after 6 were stolen from outside their owners address.
The thefts took place overnight between Thursday the 5th of December and the following morning. All of the cars were large family style people carriers.
The converters were removed by pipe cutter from the underside of the vehicles and police urge anyone who drives that type of vehicle to be extra vigilant about leaving them unattended overnight on the roadside.
Anyone who sees any suspicious activity around cars parked overnight is asked to call 999. If you have any other information, contact police via 101 or email ‘[email protected]‘quoting serial 0376 of 6/12. You can also call independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
An increasing number of reports of fraudster scams have been reported to surrey police.
On each occasion the victim receives a phone call from someone claiming to be a police officer tell them that their card has been compromised and that they need to call the bank and cancel it.
They then say that a courier will be round to collect the card.
Meanwhile, the fraudster stays on the line, leaving it open and obtains the victim’s bank details while they think they are phoning the bank. A courier – sometimes a taxi – calls at the victim’s address saying they have been sent by the police to collect the parcel.
If you’ve received any calls of this nature, please call Surrey Police on 101
