April update

Weybridge Hospital Site
The CCG is finalising its plans to carry out a public consultation over the summer to help shape its out-of-hospital strategy. There will be a range of workshops and events as well as direct communication with key stakeholders including Surrey County Council.
Please let me know your views on what future provision of health care you would like to see on the existing site as well as emailing nwsccg.comms@nhs.netnhs

Dog Fouling
There has been an increase in the amount of dog fouling around the town and in particular near to Manby Lodge School. Please ensure that if it is your dog you clear it up and put it in a public bin or take it home. dog

Garden Green Radnor Rd
I was pleased to be able to support a recent application to register the open space at the end of Radnor Road as a Village Green. This is with Surrey County Council for final approval which I hope will be confirmed shortly.green.jpg

Cinema
Approval was recently given for a new cinema in Weybridge! The boutique operator will bring increased footfall to that end of the High Street as well as Elmbridge Borough Council providing affordable flats above.

Parking
The Weybridge Society have done a huge amount of work on the parking issues in the town centre. I will continue to work closely with them to find a long-term solution, but their excellent research provides invaluable data on the causes of congestion and ways to address it. You can find this at http://www.weybridgesociety.org.uk where you can also sign their e-petition.

Rylston Registry officerylston
There has been much speculation about the future of the registry office and a great deal of local concern about the loss of this well liked facility. Surrey CC are still considering a range of options -including keeping it open – and I hope to provide an update at the Weybridge Society AGM on the 12th April.

Have your say
As the Cabinet member at Surrey County Council for Property and Business Services, I have been keen to engage local partners in looking at what each community wants in its locality.

This includes looking at potentially better ways of using our community buildings for the benefit of all residents. If you have any ideas as to how we can make the best use of our public buildings, please do email me on tim.oliver@surreycc.gov.uk

Cycle scheme and roads
The cycle/pedestrian walk scheme from the town centre to the railway station and then on the Brooklands business park is now in its final design stages and ready for submission for central government funding through the local enterprise partnership. The route can be seen on the following link:- https://www.surreycc.gov.uk/__data/assets/pdf_file/0007/155068/Brooklands-Business-Park-Accessibility-Project-Proposed-Cycling-and-Walking-Route-Map.pdf It is hoped that the resurfacing of the top end of St Georges Avenue will be included as part of the funding as the road is currently unsafe for cyclists. SCC will continue to work with Elmbridge to access public funds (CIL money from developers) particularly for repair work to Seven Hills Road. With over 3000 miles of road in Surrey to maintain and enormous pressure on funds from the increasing demand from supporting adult social care and children and adults with Special Education Needs and Disabilities there is simply not enough money at the moment to keep all the roads in the condition we would all like to see them.

Speeding and road safety
We all need to respect our community and in particular make sure it is safe to walk along our pavements and cross our roads. The road safety team will be looking particularly closely at traffic speed in the Triangle area as well as conducting an outside of school safety audit at Manby Lodge (a similar assessment was also carried out at St Georges Junior School recently.prin
