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.

Don't Lose Your Vote on 5th May!

(2 votes)

Ballot BoxFigures published by the Office of National Statistics last week show that there are 73,239 people registered to vote in Spelthorne. Although this is a large proportion of residents, this still leaves many who could miss out on their chance to vote.

Roberto Tambini, Chief Executive of Spelthorne Borough Council, said: "Residents need to act now if they are to vote at the Spelthorne Council Elections and UK Referendum on the voting system to the UK Parliament taking place on Thursday, 5th May. If they are not registered to vote, they will not have the opportunity to have their say".

Phillippa Saray from the Electoral Commission, the independent elections watchdog, adds: "Residents may also be planning to be away on 5th May, given the extra Bank Holiday for the Royal Wedding, so it's worth applying now to vote by post or proxy if that will suit your plans. You can print off the forms from www.aboutmyvote.co.uk. It takes just a few minutes and then you are all set for 5th May."

Anyone who has moved house in the past few months needs to register their new address. Residents can request a registration form by calling Electoral Services on 01784 446238 / 01784 446232 or by printing off a registration form from www.aboutmyvote.co.uk

Change of Date for 'Eco Park' Hearing

Rate this item
(2 votes)

Since 2nd February when the Planning and Regulatory Committee approved the permanent retention of the Waste Transfer Station at Charlton Lane, two matters have arisen which have necessitated the application to be referred back to the P&RC on 25th February. As a consequence of this, the full application for the installation of the 'Eco Park' will not now be heard until the P&RC meet on 8th of March.

In collaboration with Charlton Village Residents' Association and other community representatives, LOSRA continues its vigorous opposition to this application; but for opposition to be effective, additional funding is essential. Please visit: http://satep.moonfruit.com/ to make a donation.

Designs of extensions and residential developmentsSpelthorne Borough Council has prepared a 2nd draft of the Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) following representations made by LOSRA and other interested parties. Subject to any further comments the Council intends to adopt the revised SPD later this year.

The 2nd draft SPD sets out the development and design principles which will be used to guide residential development throughout the Borough and is intended to assist designers and homeowners. The guidance amplifies parts of policy EN1 (Design of New Development) included in the Council's Core Strategy and Policies Development Plan Document, and will be used by the Council in making decisions on planning applications.

The draft SPD is available for inspection at the Council Offices and at public libraries; and is also available free to view/download here.

The consultation period will run for a six week period from Wednesday 16th February to 5pm on Wednesday 30th March 2011. Representations may be submitted via the online form or by post to: Planning Services, Council Offices, Knowle Green, Staines TW18 1XB. Copies of the form may be obtained from the local library or Council Offices or by downloading from the Council Website.
