Whether I am jogging in Happy Valley or enjoying time with my kids on Farthing Downs, I am always struck by the beauty of our open spaces.
We are truly fortunate to have these amenities on our doorstep, which is why I am delighted that Natural England is considering expanding the Surrey Hills Area of Natural Beauty to parts of Coulsdon. Doing so will help to ensure Happy Valley and Farthing Downs are further preserved in law and safeguarded for future generations.
You can show your support for the project in the online consultation here: Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Boundary Variation Project – Introduction – Defra – Citizen Space. The ‘Boundary Maps Part 2’ link covers our area.
The consultation closes on 13th June 2023, so make sure you respond in good time. Please share this post widely too your friends, family, and neighbours too!
