Tesco have now put in their application to The Council.
Tesco are expecting 900 shopping trips per day to the store, yet are providing no car parking at all for customers.
As you know, one of our main concerns is that because of the size of the store (3x the size of Tesco Express) the volume of cars parking in Ashtead village could be too great for the parking spaces available – especially when there are events at The Ashtead Peace Memorial Hall.
We thus want to ensure there is an accurate measure of current car parking usage in the village. We therefore need your help in counting the car parking in the village over the next few weeks/months. If you can help for a couple of hours please contact us by clicking here ideally with your phone number. Thank you.
In due course we will send you details of how you can write to the Planning Dept with your views. Please remember that if you are a couple you can send in 2 separate emails/letters, which would help increase the number of representations.
