Proposed Permanent TRO BOAT 529 Pirbright Surrey
Proposed Permanent TRO - BOAT 529 Pirbright - Important Action Required
Originally the Guildford Local Committee wanted to put a seasonal TRO on BOAT 529, due a small amount of damage in a couple of
stretches of the BOAT. (I would call it regular wear, mid sized ruts, nothing too bad).
On the 18th June 08, Surrey CC RoW department recommended to Guildford Local Committee that BOAT 529 should be repaired. And that a
TRO was not required. They had the budget and planned to carry out the work in the summer.
Guildford Local Committee voted against the recommendation and recommended a permanent TRO.
Guildford Local Committee are very anti-vehicle, and this prejudice is clearly recorded in the minutes of their committee meeting,
which I circulated previously.
Repairs to the BOAT were completed on 14th July.
I have just received official notification that they propose to put a permanent TRO to BOAT 529.
The reasons stated are the usual generic reasons, nothing specific.
Please write to Surrey County Council objecting to the proposed TRO. Because now the BOAT has been repaired there is absolutely no
legitimate reason to apply the TRO.
