Clothes Collection

Clothes-02Clothes+ is a charitable collection service for unwanted items, which the borough runs in partnership with the British Heart Foundation. So far, in 2014 the borough has passed on 22 tons of items for the BHF to sell in their shops and there’s another cycle of collections this September. There is also a free reminder service for Elmbridge burghers and other residents.

Morrisons – Officers say yes

Proposed view of Morrisons Small

 

The planning professionals at Elmbridge and Surrey have given their recommendation for the borough to permit the development of a new Morrisons in Monument Hill.  In precise terms “… it is considered that this scheme be recommended for planning permission… “.  Have a read of their report (Morrisons 2013-1611) and tell me what you think.

Twenty-three people will meet on Tuesday at the civic centre at 7:45 to decide whether to permit this scheme or not.  Other options are available too – to permit with further conditions or  to delay pending further report backs.  It is the biggest single development in the town centre for many years.
