There are a couple of important issues relating to West Byfleet Recreation Ground which we feel Residents’ Association Members need to be aware of:
The RA has been formally informed by Lichfields of a public consultation on behalf of Marstons, which is taking place on Thursday 21 June 2018 from 4pm to 8pm in the Dora Honnor Room at the Cornerstone Centre, St John’s Church, Camphill Road, West Byfleet, KT14 6EH.
The email says:-
“Dear Members of the Byfleet, West Byfleet & Pyrford Residents’ Association,
Marston’s is seeking views on their exciting development proposals for a new Marston’s Pub Restaurant and replacement Pavilion off Camphill Road in West Byfleet.
A public exhibition is taking place on Thursday 21 June 2018 from 4pm to 8pm in the Dora Honnor Room at the Cornerstone Centre, St John’s Church, Camphill Road, West Byfleet.
Representatives of Marston’s project team will be available to answer any questions you may have.
This is a follow up to the consultation at West Byfleet Live last year following amendments to the proposed location and layout of the pub/restaurant and pavilion.”
The RA is very much against this proposal.
A copy of their press advertisement is available here.
Please do go along to express your views on the proposal.
Two Mums with children at the local schools (West Byfleet Junior & West Byfleet Infant Schools) have managed to raise £55,000 to improve the playground next to the schools in Camphill Road.
After some years, the money has still not been spent, and they have set up a petition, addressed to Ray Morgan, Chief Executive Woking Borough Council and Ms Killian, Chief Executive Surrey County Council.
The full petition is at the link below, but the first paragraph says:-
We, parents and local taxpayers, have raised, with your help, £55k to upgrade our local playground on West Byfleet Recreation Ground. Nothing has happened with this funding and the playground remains inadequate for the 300+ children that make use of it from the neighbouring schools and local community. The equipment is worn and unsafe in places where padded ground cover should be in place. Our children’s climbing frame was removed more than three years ago and has not been replaced. In fact, at the time, there was a sign from the council stating that ‘the climbing frame would not be replaced.’
The RA fully supports the petition, which has now received over 1,100 signatures.
If you would like to sign the petition, the link is:-
