KFC update - Planning committee meeting on Thursday Print E-mail

KFC logoThe planning committee of Epsom and Ewell Borough Council are meeting this Thursday 6 December to decide whether to approve the application by KFC to turn the old Organ and Dragon pub into a restaurant with takeaway.

At our last general committee we voted to oppose the application because of the real fear that the traffic on that busy junction will be made even worse by having a takeaway restaurant open at 7am. This view is shared by BP, who operate the garage opposite the site.

Residents who live on the roads leading onto the London Road and Ewell By Pass are particularly concerned about traffic backing up side roads and causing horrendous queues as a result.

The planning committee meeting on Thursday is open to the public, so residents are welcome to come to the Town Hall to see what happens and listen to councillors' deliberations and the views of planning officers.

The deadline has passed to lodge an objection the Epsom and Ewell Borough Council website, but it's not too late to make your voice heard on the new Our Voice section on our own website.
