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 2022 are now payable.

The following press notice has been sent by the Council and we are pleased to reproduce it here:

If you're getting someone in to work on your house or garden, before you agree anything, check they are a registered waste carrier. That way you'll have peace of mind that when your trader takes your waste away it won't be dumped, causing damage to Spelthorne's beautiful green spaces and create unnecessary work for the Council.

It's easy to do and could save you a £400 fine, because if your waste is found dumped it's you who'll be fined, not the rogue trader. You should always get a receipt for the disposal of your waste. Find out via the Environment Agency's website to if your trader is registered: https://environment.data.gov.uk/public-register/view/index.

Fly-tipping is anti-social, and punishment can result in a fine of up to £50,000 or 12 months in prison. In Surrey 100% of fly-tippers who go to court are convicted, so help us to stamp out this unacceptable behaviour by running a quick check online before you employ anyone.

Councillor Richard Barratt, Portfolio Holder for Compliance, Waste and Risk, said: "Our green spaces are particularly precious and do not deserve to be damaged by fly-tipped waste. It takes two minutes to check online to check whether your trader is registered. Let's all work together and do our bit to get rid of this unseemly practice."

You can find out all you need to know about fly-tipping in Surrey, including how to report it where you live, on the Surrey Environment Partnership website: https://www.surreyep.org.uk/fly-tipping/

The Census is coming!

The following article is posted at the request of the Census Engagement Manager North Surrey, Office for National Statistics:

The census is coming. By taking part, you can help inform decisions on services that shape your community, such as healthcare, education and transport.

The census is a unique survey that happens every 10 years. It gives us a snapshot of all the people and households in England and Wales – the most detailed information we have about our society.

It’s important that you fill in your census questionnaire. Without the information you share, it’d be more difficult to understand your community’s needs and to plan andfund public services.

In one way or another, your information touches the lives of every single person living in England and Wales, whether it’s through using census information to plan new schools, doctors’ surgeries or bike lanes.

Because these things matter to us all, everyone needs to complete the census. Do not worry, government officials dealing with applications you’ve made or payments or services you receive cannot see it.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) runs the census in England and Wales and is independent from government. Your details are protected by law and information published is always anonymous.

Census Day is Sunday 21 March 2021. You can fill yours in online as soon as you get your access code in the post. If your household circumstances change on Census Day, you can let the ONS know.

Everyone should have the support they need to fill in the census. If you, or anyone you know, needs help, there’s a wide range of support services available.

These include a contact centre that can give you help over the phone and guidance in a range of languages and accessible formats, including paper questionnaires and
large print.

If you need help or have any questions, visit http://www.census.gov.uk/

Lendy Memorial Restored!

Further to the article published on 25th January, we can now report that the mirrored cladding on the Lendy Memorial was removed today, 11th February. (Photo: courtesy Jude Browne).
 
It is now intended to provide historical background information about the Lendy Memorial, by way of a plaque at the memorial; booklets available in the Embroidery Café; and/or via a QR code linked to an appropriate website.

Surrey Heartlands Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) commissions non-emergency patient transport services for residents within the local catchment area. The CCG is currently reviewing these services and wants to hear the experiences of service users and their carers or family members who have helped them access the service.

The CCG hosted five Round Table discussions late last year. These were multi-disciplinary sessions with clinicians, NHS teams, and service user representatives including learning disabled, the elderly, physically disabled, and service users with sensory impairments.

 

Based on the themes that emerged at the Round Tables, the CCG has launched an online User Survey. It’s a quick, online survey of multiple choice questions.

As some patient transport users may not have access to technology, we are inviting service user carers and families to complete the survey on their behalf.

To take the survey, click here: https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/PTS_ServiceUserSurvey/

 

It closes at 11.59pm on Sunday 7 March 2021. Please take five minutes to offer your experiences and suggestions.
