Question

Will the Mayor join with me in condemning the irresponsible action by the Liberal Democrat Executive at Kingston upon Thames Borough Council who have unilaterally suggested the setting up of a park and ride scheme, not in their own Borough but in the Metropolitan Green Belt or at Leisure facilities in three neighbouring Surrey Boroughs, against the Planning policies of those boroughs and with out any consultation and against the advice of their own specialist consultants?

Answered By: 
The Mayor

As I understand it, Kingston is looking at the scope for Park-and-Ride but it is in the early stages prior to consultation. I have not been consulted and do not have details of the work that is being carried out. It is too early for me to make a judgement on such a proposal. .
