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 2023 are now payable.

Do You Want to Start Your Own Business?

Dominic de Lord of Crick Heitman Chartered Accountants, a LOSRA sponsor and our honorary auditor, is offering to provide free and independent advice to any Lower Sunbury Resident who is considering starting up a business; and to make introductions to existing local businesses.

If you are interested, please give Dominic a call on 01784 243054.

Parking MetersResidents may already be aware of the SCC online petition to lodge objections to the Surrey-wide proposal to introduce on-street parking charges . following information is being circulated to everyone in Surrey in an effort to achieve the 20,000 signatures needed to force a formal debate.

To object to Surrey County Council’s proposals to introduce on-street parking charges throughout the county please sign this online petition. It only takes a couple of minutes and you could help retain the vitality of our Surrey towns and save hundreds of local shops and businesses who are already struggling to survive in this fragile economic climate.

If 20,000 signatures are collected before 23rd March, SCC will have to take the escalating protests seriously because they will then be compelled to hold a formal debate. Don't delay; this petition merely demands a formal debate, a democratic right to which we should feel entitled with or without a petition!



LOSRA has been notified that the Planning and Regulatory Committee of Surrey County Council which was due to sit today at 3pm (see article of 3rd March) has been cancelled. We had to recognise our limitations when up against a big corporation and the vested interests of Surrey County Council; and, despite the cost, we had no choice but to seek the opinion of a most respected QC and a specialist in planning law.

Our Solicitor, having taken the QC's advice, has written to the Head of Legal Services at Surrey County Council and argued on very powerful grounds for refusing the application. It is a great relief to hear that the Planning Committee has now been cancelled, if only for the time being. It can only be hoped that this misconceived application will itself ultimately put into the recycling bin .

Manor Players Do Dinner

Moira Buffini has written a deliciously black satirical comedy on that ever-recurring theme, the dinner party from hell. At Buffini’s dinner party caustic comments fly like poisonous darts across the dinner table, penetrating false personas and leaving a trail of emotional carnage.

The Manor Players will perform 'Dinner' at the Riverside Arts Centre, Thames Street from Thursday, 10th March until Saturday 12th March. Performances start at 8pm and tickets cost £10. Box Office: 07771 458696.

Thames21'Thames 21' a Registered Charity is appealing for volunteers to help in a clean-up operation at Sunbury Lock Island. This location is a charming part of the Lower Sunbury riverscape and we are being asked to join a team to give it a spring clean on Saturday 12th March.

Volunteers are asked to report to the footbridge ahead of the lock at 10.45am. Old clothes recommended but all necessary equipment will be provided. For more details, go to http://thames21utp.tumblr.com/
