Public Art For Shalford…

Guildford Borough Council has obtained a S106 payment (£4,500) from the new houses on the old Nelco Works in Station Road for a piece of public art in the village.

It has been suggested that this should be something with a naturalistic theme, that it should enhance the area, and be where as many people as possible will see it – maybe near the pond, another part of the Common, the railway bridge or the Orchard between the bridge and Snooty’s Grocery Store. Suggestions so far include a Swift Tower, an interactive information board but there is no definite plan yet.

Guildford BC will lead on commissioning an artist and developing a brief to produce the work. We want to involve residents in the decision making and development of the project so if you have ideas and would like to be involved or would like more information.

Please contact the Parish Council office on 01483 459108 or

Many thanks,

Surrey County Council and Guildford Borough Council Consultations

Surrey Country Council Consultation on Community Recycling Centres

The following explanation for the consultation were received in a letter from SCC Cllr Mike Goodman, Cabinet Member for Transport and Environment

I am writing to let you know that Surrey County Council is launching a consultation about possible changes to community recycling centres (CRCs).

The Council very much regrets having to make these proposals. Whilst they create efficiencies, which take into current account patterns of use, they are at the same time a reduction in service that I know is highly valued by our residents.

Continued cuts to funding, rising costs and increasing demand for key services means that the need to find savings has reached unprecedented levels. This year alone we need to make savings of more than £100m – that’s about 10% of our overall budget.

The following changes are proposed:

  1. Permanent closure of four smaller CRCs – Bagshot, Cranleigh, Dorking and Warlingham
  2. Ending the free daily allowance of non-household waste
  3. Closing CRCs on two weekdays so all sites are open for five days a week
  4. Restricting users of vans, trailers and pick-ups to larger CRCs only
  5. Ensuring CRCs in Camberley and Farnham are only used by Surrey residents

For more information, please visit the consultation webpage at The questionnaire will be live from Friday 23 June.

Hard copies will also be available at CRCs and by calling 03456 009 009 or texting 07860 053 456. The consultation closes on Monday 7 August. We are encouraging consultation returns to be made via the above webpage where at all possible for ease of processing.

The consultation responses will be used to inform the final plans which will be agreed by SCC’s cabinet this autumn. Your support in encouraging residents to take part in the consultation is appreciated.

Although I understand why these changes will not be welcomed I do firmly believe that they will allow a comprehensive and efficient CRC service to Surrey’s residents to be maintained while delivering savings to the taxpayer to help protect essential services.
