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 2018 are now payable.

The following notice by Surrey County Council has been received by LoSRA and is reproduced here:

Surrey County Council is engaging with citizens to support the development of social prescribing pathways across Surrey.  Social prescribing is a way of helping people with social, emotional and everyday needs with sources of relevant support in their local community.

We have made a short video about social prescribing, click here; https://vimeo.com/275803319/cec70fcdd1

After watching the video, have your say by completing the 5-10 minutes survey.

The AGM on the 20th June attracted a full house and attendees were urged to complete their responses to the consultation on the Issues and Options for the Local Plan following a very helpful presentation by Ann Biggs, the Strategic Planning Manager for Spelthorne and Geoff Dawes, the Principle Planning Officer.

If you were unable to attend and have not yet completed the consultation form we urge you to do so as the closing date is midnight tonight.

The form will only take a few minutes to complete by clicking on the link below. We have published a specimen (scroll down to article of 18th June) which was compiled after the Association had taken legal advice.

LoSRA has received a notice from County Councillor Tim Evans which announces pavement repairs in Thames Street commencing 2nd July.

Since publication of our initial briefing note (see article of 28th May) the Association, in conjunction with Keep Kempton Green (KKG), has now had the benefit of legal advice from which a specimen of ‘model’ answers has been produced. Readers who subscribe to the KKG mailing list may already have received this.

There is nothing particularly contentious in the model which departs marginally from our earlier briefing note but it accords greater emphasis to the status of Kempton Park Green Belt.

The model is not intended to be prescriptive but residents may wish to adopt some or all of the answers in their responses. If you have already completed your questionnaire but have a preference for answers contained within the model, fear not as Spelthorne have confirmed that responses already submitted can be amended.

The closing date for submissions, 25th June, remains unchanged and if you are still unsure what to do, or need further clarification, why not come to our AGM on 20th June, 8pm at the Riverside Arts Centre. Our guest speaker Ann Biggs, the Strategic Planning Manager for Spelthorne will be available to answer questions.

Get your tickets for the next show, Terry Pratchett's 'Guards! Guards!', showing at the end of this month. Following the successes of ''Allo! Allo' and 'Are You Being Served?', the Riverside Players are joining forces with Shepperton Players to bring us another fabulous comedy this summer.

'Guards! Guards!' is full of fantastical themes - terrifying and comic in equal measure. The security of the city of Ankh-Morpok is in the hands of its City Night Watch, an undervalued and underfunded bunch. When they suddenly find themselves up against a massive fire-breathing monster, they need to up their game – and fast!

Potholes in Surrey

The state of the roads is frustrating many local residents who contact Spelthorne by the hundreds by phone, email, social media and even visiting the Council. However, it is Surrey County Council who are responsible for the upkeep of our roads and pavements, not Spelthorne Borough Council.

A petition has been set up to ask the government to debate Surrey's pothole issues in the Houses of Parliament. The online petition asks the government to reform its funding formula which decides how much cash should be given for road repairs. Surrey County Council says the method for calculating the amount penalises the County because it is calculated on the length of a road and not the volume of traffic. Visit https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/217930 to sign the petition.
