Morning All, 

For those who expressed interest and also put in objection letters (thank you). The Surbiton Planning Sub-Committee will be meeting at 7:30pm on Wednesday 11th January 2012 in the School Hall at Dysart School, 190 Ewell Road, Tolworth, KT6 6HL to consider Hydro Properties' application to redevelop the Surbiton Filter Beds.

Thames SC and River Thames Sports Alliance representatives will be attending the meeting to address the sub-committee. We need as many people as possible to attend the meeting to show support, to illustrate the high level of opposition to the proposals and to ensure that Councillors act to safeguard the future of river sports on the Thames.

Could you post a reply if you are able to attend.

Thank you so much.

Just had a letter from Kingston BC, inviting comments on amended plans and additional information, and requesting comments by Thurs 26th of Jan, but saying that the application will be considered on 11th Jan and 25Jan by RBK committees!

I've heard the same from others; I haven't had anything from them yet!

There is ANOTHER sub committee meeting this week: Kingston Neighbourhood Committee on Wed 18th Jan at 7.30pm at the Guildhall, Kingston. Best be there for 7.15, last week was rammed packed full. If you can attend and show support that would be marvellous.

Papers for the meeting are below.

just received *another* letter which states that the Dev Control committee meeting planned for the 25th Jan will not be considering the filter beds application. Instead there's be a special meeting, provisionally 23rd feb, which they'll confirm in writing nearer the time.

Why wasn't Thames Sailing Club included in the RYA nominations for "Club of the Year"? Maybe we should have a list of "National Authorities of the Year".. Where would the RYA come in that?
