More details from petition creator

I am the current owner/director at Smarty Pants Preschool which is run from the Bookham Youth & Community Centre. I took over the preschool in Nov 2017. The centre is a shared facility used by other users like disability challenges, youth group, Pilate classes, drama and the preschool. The preschool has 20 + children on board from the ages of 6 months to 4 years. 6 staff on board plus all the furniture, toys + equipment.

The centre's current lease from Surrey County Council (SCC) expires in February 2019, which has been extended to August 2019. The agreed plan was that a new Centre would be built whilst the existing Centre remained in use. A site for this was identified. In March 2018, we were advised that SCC would not renew the lease. Also, concerning the provision of a replacement facility, we have been informed it is unlikely.

We would be grateful if Surrey can provide an extension of the occupation of the existing Centre for as long as possible. Provision of a new facility to replace the existing Centre. We look forward to a solution as a high priority and minimise any transition period between existing & potential new facilities.
