This is to be an “Open Committee Meeting,” so members may wish to come with written versions of any problems they are facing and then present them orally to those present. This may be particularly pertinent given the decisions that our local MVDC is going to have to make in the near future in connection with C2C* and Plan L. We shall hold other meetings in this Open Committee format and are also planning a general meeting for the whole area some time in September. However, it is not only problems which can be voiced but also we would especially welcome fresh ideas for the town and its surrounding highways and rail system.
*C2C = a large report on the area between London and the coast, i.e. Coast to Capital. Plan L refers to Leatherhead, but as yet there is no clearly defined future project.
