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.

Some residents may already be aware of the sad news that Richard Worthington died over the Christmas weekend. A resident of Saxonbury Avenue for many years, and a former landscape architect, he was a prominent member of the Friends of Sunbury Park, especially interested in Orchard Meadow and Hawke Park; and was a supporter of LOSRA's stance on local planning applications - he spoke in objection to the London Irish planning applications at the special planning committee at Kempton Park. He had a stroke during the week before Christmas, and died a week later. He leaves his wife June. The funeral is at Hanworth Crenatorium on 25th Jan at 12 noon, and afterwards at Sunbury Cricket Club.

And last weekend we received the sad news that John Stamp died on Friday at Princess Alice after a 25-year battle against cancer. John, of course, designed the Sunbury Embroidery - he was formerly the chief designer at Thames Television, responsible for some famous title sequences including World At War. A trustee of the Embroidery, he continued his innovative work after the Embroidery was completed, and shortly before his death, the tactile displays for the visually impaired, cast from his three dimensional clay models of the Embroidery panels, were installed as part of stunning new modules at the Gallery. He was a remarkable personality, and despite the increasingly insidious effects of his cancer, he was still greeting visitors at the Gallery on Sundays as recently as last autumn until it became too difficult for him. His family, including his wife Jeanette, was with him when he died.

Wild, Wild WomenShepperton Players present a wild west musical. The womenfolk of Aggroville are tired of the family feuding tearing up the town, and go on sex strike. That's when the men start to notice Madame Lola and her 'soiled doves'.

Wild Wild Women will bring lively songs and rootin' tootin' cowboy humour to the Riverside Arts Centre, Thames Street, from Wednesday 2nd to Saturday 5th February.

Cost is £10, group discount available. Starts at 8pm. Contact Box Office on: 0208 977 8206.

Police CollegeA number of residents have asked about the future of the Police College in Green Street. Since November the premises have been vacated, locked and boarded up. The Head of Planning Policy at the Council has made enquiries of the Estates Department at the Met. Police in order to find out their intentions for the future of the site.

The Met. Police have informed him that progress towards disposal is still at an early stage but they were looking to sell the property later this year.

This Website will be updated just as soon as we hear anything more concrete.

Latest News on 'Eco Park' Hearings

The planning application to retain the existing facilities will be considered by the Planning and Regulatory Committee of Surrey County Council at a special meeting on 2nd February rather than 12th January as was originally planned.

The Spelthorne's Planning Committee will consider the Eco Park application at a Special meeting on Wednesday 26th January at 7pm. Our Council, as statutory consultees, must first consider the full application for the Eco Park before the application is determined by the Planning and Regulatory Committee of Surrey County Council.

All residents are urged to attend the important special meeting on the 26th. Don't forget to visit: http://satep.moonfruit.com/ for all the latest.
