PETITIONS pdf icon PDF 84 KB

    To receive any petitions in accordance with Standing Order 68. Notice should be given in writing or by email to the Community Partnership and Committee Officer at least 14 days before the meeting. Alternatively, the petition can be submitted on-line through Surrey County Council’s e-petitions website as long as the minimum number of signatures (30) has been reached 14 days before the meeting.

    Additional documents:

    Minutes:

    Four received.

     

    The petitions and responses (which were provided to the petitioners) are attached to the minutes as Appendix A.

     

    Petition 1 – Mr Owen Flaherty presented a petition of 133 signatures, asking for the adoption of service road leading to Audley, St Francis and Sunnydown School, Caterham.

     

    The Chairman referred the Petitioner to the written response.

     

    Mr Flaherty was in attendance and presented the petition. He raised concerns that this is a health and safety issue for the schools.  The schools have grown in size considerably since being built to accommodate the local population and so the road is being used more. 

     

    Divisional Member Mr Orrick suggested that Section 106 monies could be used for this matter as the schools are expanding to meet the growing need of a larger population locally. 

     

    Mr Hodge felt it important that the Headteachers and Governors of the school consider all the implications of the adoption of the road by SCC. In becoming a public highway all road users are able to use the road, not only those using the schools.

     

    Members discussed that although De Stafford school had a separate entrance it is close by and may wish to join in to try and resolve access issues.

     

    Mr Orrick offered to meet with the schools outside of the meeting to discuss a way forward on this matter.

     

     

    Petition 2 – Mr Mark Salter was in attendance and presented a petition signed by 36 local residents to reduce the unrestricted speed limit on Westerham Road (A25).

     

    Mr Salter advised the Committee that since submitting the petition an additional 41 signatures had been collected making the total 77.  The Petitioner thanked the Chairman for the response but asked if more could be done other than reducing to 50mph such as providing a crossing as there is currently no safe way to cross the road.

     

    Divisional Member Mr Skellett confirmed that he would be supportive of the 50mph limit although has not looked at the detail.

     

    Members felt that although supportive of the reduced speed limit they would have reservations in a pedestrian crossing as not enough usage to justify the cost.  Members agreed to look into this request in further detail.

     

     

    Petition 3 – Mr Piers Clark was in attendance and presented a petition on behalf of resident in Grange Road, Caterham requesting parking restrictions.

     

    The responding officer advised the petitioner that a proposal of yellow lines with gaps is due for consideration by the Committee as part of the parking item at the meeting,   The officer raised that parked cars do slow traffic and reduce speeds on a road, and by removing all parking on Grange road speeds are likely to increase.  A balance has to be found in this matter that removing parking on Grange Road would push the issue to another road.  The three hour time limit restrictions in Harestone Lane are to be removed and it is hoped that this will alleviate some parking issues.

FORMAL PUBLIC QUESTIONS pdf icon PDF 62 KB

    To answer any questions from residents or businesses within the Tandridge District area in accordance with Standing Order 69. Notice should be given in writing or by email to the Community Partnership and Committee Officer by 12 noon four working days before the meeting.

    Additional documents:

    Minutes:

    Three formal public questions were received. The written responses are attached to the minutes as Appendix B.

     

    Question 1

     

    Dr John Nathan asked if anything could be done to deal with the speeding traffic in Detillens Lane, Limpsfield.  Dr Nathan asked a supplementary question asking how the speed survey was carried out by Surrey.  The Senior Highways Engineer advised that an officer sits in a parked car not standing on the pavement, so would not be obvious to the driver that their speed was being recorded. In accordance with the SCC policy the mean speed for a 20mph request would be 24 mph.

     

    Member Discussion – Key points

    ·         Divisional Member, Nick Skellett asked the Parking Team Manager to review Detillens Lane and use parked vehicles as a way of slowing traffic.  Mr Skellett also confirmed that a Neighbourhood Plan was being developed in the area and CIL money could possibly be available to assist with this matter. 

     

     

    Question 2

     

    Mr Peter Forbes asked for an update on the issue of speeding vehicles on the A25 into Nutfield and to reduce the speed limit on Mid Street.  The Senior Highways Engineer confirmed that the Committee would be asked to approve the Integrated Transport Scheme Programme for 2015/16 - 2016/17 in Item 13 of the agenda. This included speed management for A25 Nutfield Road and Mid Street. 

     

    Question 3

     

    Parish Councillor Harry Fitgerald asked for a progress update on the feasibility of a speed reduction table at Dormansland cross roads.  The Senior Highways Engineer confirmed that the Committee would be asked to allocate funding for a design to be carried out in Item 13 of the Agenda.

MEMBERS QUESTIONS pdf icon PDF 69 KB

    To receive any written questions from Members under Standing Order 47.  Notice should be given in writing to the Community Partnership and Committee Officer of formal questions by 12.00 noon four working days before the meeting.

    Additional documents:

    Minutes:

    There were two member questions submitted and no member questions were asked informally at the meeting.

     

    The written responses are attached to the minutes as Appendix C.

     

    Member Discussion – key points

    ·         With reference to question 1, from Sally Marks, she highlighted concerns that drivers can continue along the A22 towards Caterham from the M25 roundabout and without having to physically stop at lights, drive in to a residential area.  She asked if signage could be reviewed and additional signs erected if necessary to highlight to drivers to slow down on the slip road.  The Senior Highways Engineer advised that this would be looked at.

    ·         With reference to question 2, Nick Skellett stated that Surrey County Council policy would not support a reduction in a speed limit to 30mph as the mean speeds are 38 and 35 mph.  Mr Skellett asked if the environment could be altered to reduce speeds as just a sign would not be enough. The Senior Highways Engineer advised that once the crossing on the A25 at the top of Snatts Hill, Oxted was completed, speed surveys would be carried out on the A25 west of Limpsfield High Street would be carried out.  If these surveys supported a speed limit reduction, then it may be possible to extend this to outside the school.   Mr Hodge supported the request to reduce the speed limit outside of the school.

    ·         Mrs Marks stated in her area many residents want to stop the all day commuter parking, as an example Grange Road.  She felt that National Rail had a duty to provide adequate parking for commuters who use their service.  Many commuters drive in from other areas to take advantage of cheaper rail travel from the stations in Caterham as part of Transport for London, Zone 6.   The Committee agreed that a letter should be sent to the Chief Executive of Tandridge District Council to request a meeting to address the commuter parking issue in Caterham Valley.  The Parking Manager stated that care has to be taken not to move the ‘issue’ to another road and by reducing car parking restrictions in other roads it may ease pressure.

    ·         Mr Skellett asked the Parking Team to review and if appropriate install double yellow lines outside of  Provide outside Limpsfield School on the A25 near the access and around the bend to prevent parking  as this currently limits sightlines for pedestrians using the crossing point east of the school.   Mr Skellett also asked if a natural calming measure in the form of yellow lines or parking could be installed on Detillens Lane, Limpsfield.
