New Residents' Forum - 21st September

Rate this item
(0 votes)

Along with other residents' associations across the Borough, LoSRA was invited by the Leader of Spelthorne Council to take part in the newly formed Residents' Forum on 21st September. A fairly detailed list of concerns was submitted in advance by our Chairman and, unsurprisingly, many of those concerns were shared Borough-wide.

The following is an extract from the email which has now been received by our Chairman:

"Thank you for confirming to wish to join our Residents Forum and for clarifying details of your priorities of concerns.

"We have in the first instance established, as was expected, that there are a number of shared concerns and of course some more individual to your communities. I am able to clarify the priorities that have emerged as follows:

  1. Local Plan (including preserving green belt land within your community)
  2. Proposals for Unitary Authority
  3. HGV Traffic
  4. Regeneration of and Promoting & Supporting your High Street
  5. 20 MPH Speed Limits
     

Other individual issues raised:

  1. Ward Councillors Not Supporting Residents
  2. Police Authority
  3. Anti-Social Behaviour
  4. Studios Expansion – Increased Traffic Flow
  5. Eco Park
  6. Youth Provision
  7. Climate change
  8. Active Travel Plans
  9. Housing Policy – Increasing Developers contribution of Affordable Housing
  10. Poor conditions of Footpaths
  11. Litter along Main Roads – Removal of Shrubbery
  12. Parking 

"It has been helpful to establish these priorities and there will be an opportunity for us to at the very least discuss your collective concerns at our first meeting."

    Re 'we're lucky....' you really don't imagine that it will make it any easier to get a test, do you? You still have to book it and just as likely to be sent miles away for it! (Why the shouty capitals?)

    I AM ASTONISHED BY VIVIEN'S COMMENT. MY ARGUMENT, IF THERE IS ONE, WAS THAT THERE WAS NO ADVERTISING, AS FAR AS WE COULD SEE, THAT THE TESTING CENTRE WAS THERE, OR GOING TO BE THERE. A NEIGHBOUR WAS SENT TO HAMMERSMITH? THERE WAS SO MANY PEOPLE TRYING TO FID A TESTING CENTRE AND BEING SENT MILES AWAY. WE WERE JOLLY LUCKY

    I am surprised that a covid testing centre has been set up in the Green Street car park at Sunbury Park. It is a busy area where there is a lot of social activity, eg shopping, restaurant, barbers, Social Club, not to mention dog walkers etc.. Surely it would have been better to have put it somewhere more remote, like the car park in Fordbridge Road. There is ample space for a drive in temporary centre there without the possibility of ill people mingling with lots of local people.
    Did we have any say / was there any discussion as to where it should go?

    I am shocked that I can see no mention of the over development of housing in Sunbury; current proposals to build 100 more flats in addition to the current development in process, at the top of Green str. at the X and 69 flats on the other side of the Cross at the ex Service men’s club.

    Manor lane is being used a road to speed in some cars are doing past 60mph. Please could we have some speed warning signs.

    The litter on both roads and footpaths is increasing. The disposable face mask is becoming a concerning eye sore, like the dog bags in the hedgerows . With fly tipping increasing, some action is definitely needed to deter this ongoing mess.
