Surrey County Council is currently planning to impose parking charges at Newlands Corner in order to cease its subsidy of Surrey Wildlife
Trust, who manage this Albury Estate owned public amenity. It is also planning to build a large new visitor centre and commercial café on the main car park with a terrace extending out onto the sloping grassland.
Many are concerned about the suitability of this plan. They feel strongly that the Burger Bar and Visitor Centre in its current modest form, is in keeping with the natural environment and with the needs of those who use and cherish this unique and rightly desig- nated ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’.
A petition has been organised which has attracted over 6,600 signatures to date.
