Surrey County Council is giving local communities up to £100m over the next five years to spend on projects that improve their local area. A footbridge between Sunbury and Walton has been proposed to be considered for some of this funding.

LOSRA has shown this project has enormous local support. See the banner at the top of the homepage.

Please show your support by voting for this proposal.

The council will take these votes of approval into account when deciding where to spend the money, so every vote counts!

    Picking up on the Sunbury golf course suggestion, I wonder if there would be support for extending the areas of Ash riverside walks? Pandemic constraints have shown the value of green corridors and the Ash would seem to represent a natural opportunity to develop one.

    A proper safety public footpath around the edge of Sunbury golf course with fences high enough to ensure the public are not hit with a golf ball wouldn't go a miss. With a view over looking the river Ash to.

    SCC is giving local communities up to £100 million to spend on improving their local area! Wow
    Since there are no public footpaths on Sunbury golf course.
    These is the golden opportunity to put in place public footpaths around the edge of the Sunbury golf course with safety fences higher enough not to be hit with a golf ball and footpaths over looking the river Ash in places.

    Excuse. me. Why do we need to be asking for funding for this project? Surely if our recidivistic councils can afford to make bets (and mistakes) on Affordable housing developments, eco parks and purchase of offices from rich oil companies, they can surely afford the few millions on bridges across the Thames which, frankly, should have been put in place fifty years ago when I first campaigned for their installation.
    It's time people realised the importance to traffic, cyclists and pedestrians. Please lets just do it now.

    A footbridge over the river is the best, most selfless act of grace that we can share with future generations.
    I can’t believe that we have had such a hard job to put this on the map. Have faith and trust . This will help the community.

    Terrible idea as i feel that it will invite lots of troublesome teenagers from molesey into the area and I also agree with richard why are only yes votes shown

    An appalling suggestion which has often been condemned by Lower Sunbury's riverside residents. How do we vote AGAINST it ? (Or is it so worded that "No" votes aren't listened to ?)
