Cobham Free School abandons plans to build on the Green Belt

It's good news that the Cobham Free School has abandoned its plans to develop a large new school on the Green Belt site adjoining Anvil Lane, Cobham and instead intends moving into Munro House off the Fairmile. Some years ago we argued that Munro House would be a far more suitable site!

We should like to congratulate the planning department at Elmbridge BC and our Councillors who have steadfastly held out to protect our Green Belt. This sends a clear, strong and unequivocal message to other potential developers “hands off our green belt”.

We would like to thank the other Cobham groups who united with us under the banner of the Cobham Green Belt Group to fight this and also for the support we have received from our members. We realise that not all our members will be happy with the new site but hopefully, with the network of footpaths and cycle lanes available, many pupils will use alternatives to the car to get to school.
