Update on Oxted gasholder

Congratulations to Gordon Keymer and the team at Tandridge District Council on securing progress towards the regeneration of the Oxted gasholder.

Tandridge District Council’s Resources Committee last night agreed to use £400,000 of funding from the Local Enterprise Partnership to help start the process before the end of March 2017. The committee have also agreed that officers can explore options around bringing forward the site for redevelopment.

The Council is in ongoing discussions with the gasholder site owners and is confident that the removal of the holder could be confirmed soon. I fully welcome this progress and look forward to seeing a real solution to this issue.
