    5 formal public questions were received.

     

    Question 1

     

    Mrs Hasler and Mrs Webster on behalf of the residents from Le Personne, Banstead Road Caterham asked if the Committee would consider installing a crossing on Banstead Road to allow the residents a safe place to cross to go to the supermarket.  Mrs Webster asked if Section 106 money could be used to help fund a crossing point.  The Area Highways Officer referred the residents to the written response advising that an Engineer had visited the site with the Divisional Member (Mr Orrick) and due to the new standards the road would not be wide enough to accommodate an informal pedestrian refuge.  Mr Orrick advised that he was concerned that the section 106 money could not be used for this purpose.  The Committee suggested that a letter could be written to the Supermarket, Tesco, to ask if they could contribute to the cost of a formal crossing, to aid residents in crossing the road. The Committee agreed that Surrey would write to Tesco to ask for a contribution and request the Parish and District also write to strengthen the support.

     

    Question 2

     

    Tony Pearson as Local Secretary for The Ramblers asked, for an update on the condition and access of footpaths due to an obstruction on footpath 354 and 356 in Horne.  Mr Pearson received a written response; however felt that the main issues were unanswered, as an Officer from the Countryside Team was not at the meeting, it was agreed that this would be passed to the Countryside Team for further clarification. 

     

    Question 3

     

    Ann Osborn thanked Mr Skellett and the Committee for making the children from Limpsfield C of E Infant School feel welcome and listened to when they attended in June to ask their question.  Mrs Osborn received a written response to the submitted question and raised concerns that the school crossing patrol would retire soon and without a signalised crossing it could be dangerous for children crossing the road. Officers advised that item 16 on the agenda for decision by the Committee included a proposal to fund measures to support the speed limit reduction outside of the school.

     

    Question 4

     

    Nutfield Parish Council were unable to attend the meeting but had been provided with a written response to their question on concerns with mud and debris on the A25 between Redhill and Bletchingley.

     

    Question 5

     

    Bob Harvey raised a concern regarding Item 14 of the Agenda and two lanes being reduced to one in Limpsfield.  The Chairman advised Mr Harvey that he would take his comments at the start of item 14.  The Highways Officer advised that the proposal was subject to detailed design and the Highways Team would carry out a consultation in the early in the design process.

MEMBERS QUESTIONS pdf icon PDF 57 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.

    Minutes:

    One Member Question was formally submitted and one question was asked informally.

     

    Mr Sydney raised a question regarding possible LEP bids for the Tandridge area. He felt that the response did not fully answer the question in particular with regards to the A264/A22 Junction.  The Committee agreed to support Mr Sydney in writing a letter to the Transport Planning Team to ask for a further explanation.

     

    Mr Skellett asked how would the officers advise residents and the Parish Council to respond to and reduce the use of Limpsfield High Street by HGVs, which presently ignore "not suitable for HGVs" signs. This exacerbates congestion and damages the footways and paving sets as the HGVs are forced to mount pavements.  The Area Highways Officer provided a verbal response and agreed to write a letter to the Parish Council to offer advice. Officers would also investigate if improvements could be made to the existing signage.
