Many of you will be aware that travellers recently parked on Farleigh Common for the third time this year. Although this is in Chelsham and Farleigh, it also impacts on Warlingham, in particular Harrow Road and Farleigh Road.

We expect the bulk of the cost of installing land protection measures to be met by Tandridge Council and by Merton College who own the land. However, in case money still needs to be raised, Warlingham Parish Council has offered to make a contribution of £1,500. If this money is needed, it will help ensure that the defences are built as soon as possible.
