Welcome to the LOSRA Website

As with any other local neighbourhood, the policies and actions which affect the character and future of Lower Sunbury are generally framed and implemented by a combination of local and national government, along with the vested interests and market forces which operate within those frameworks. Lower Sunbury is by no means unique in being under threat from a creaking infrastructure brought about by rapid urban development, the growth of traffic, and other pressures affecting the quality of life and the character of the area.

Working with the local authorities, we see it as the responsibility of residents’ and amenity groups such as LOSRA to address the underlying issues which fundamentally affect their members’ lives, as well as the minutiae of everyday life with which such groups are often concerned.

Please sign up to receive our regular e-bulletins by subscribing via the facility at the top left hand of this page. It goes without saying that, without your continued support we would cease to function so we urge you to join, or renew your membership now Subscriptions (£5 per household) for 2017 are now payable.

The vast majority of single dwelling development applications imply improvements not only for their owners but in the local housing stock generally. Occasionally however, this Association feels bound to object when an application is likely to impact adversely on the wider community; and the proposed development of a site currently occupied by a single bungalow (Manor Farm Cottage) into a block of nine (1 x 1 bed and 8 x 2 bed) flats at the busy road junction of Green Street and Manor Lane falls squarely into that category.

Residents who wish to make representations have until 24th May to do so. Submissions may be made via the planning portal at the Spelthorne Council Website quoting reference number: 17/00649/FUL.

Our Chairman has written on behalf of the Association and his submission may be viewed by clicking here

The reinstatement of street lighting in Spelthorne has been of major concern to local residents in Lower Sunbury. The following announcement from Spelthorne Borough Council explains the position as it currently stands:

“Street lighting is the responsibility of the County Council. In October 2016 the County Council's Cabinet approved a decision to implement part-night lighting across Surrey. This was rolled out in Spelthorne in March 2017.

“Due to concerns raised by residents, a high proportion of whom are shift workers, an agreement was made in principle between the Leaders of Spelthorne Borough Council and Surrey County Council to reinstate the lights in Spelthorne for an initial period of five years, on the understanding that the Borough Council would find the necessary funding.

“Spelthorne Council was hopeful that this could be implemented quickly. However the decision was made by the County Council's Cabinet and any amendment must be referred back to that decision-making body. We have been assured that this will be on the agenda for 30 May 2017. If approved a date for the lights to be switched back on will be available after this meeting.”

John Etheridge's reputation in the jazz world cannot be overstated. A genuinely virtuosic fusion guitarist, Etheridge is one of a handful of players who can claim to have helped shape the character of modern jazz guitar.

He has been described by fellow fretsman Pat Metheny as 'one of the best guitarists in the world', a distinction that is due in no small part to his tireless exploration of the possibilities of his instrument.

A hugely respected artist in his own right, Etheridge also claims an impressive collaborative history, from his seminal work with groundbreaking fusion group Soft Machine to his longstanding status as the guitarist of choice for jazz icon Ste'phane Grappelli.

For more information on John, visit: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ John_Etheridge

Also appearing with John on the night:

  • Piano – Terence Collie
  • Bass – Dave Jones
  • Drums – Rha Stranges

Starts 7.30pm. Tickets £9 via website: www.moodindigoevents.co.uk or £12 on the door
