    Spelthorne Liberal Democrats are putting up a strong list of candidates for the forthcoming elections to Spelthorne Borough Council. The coming four years will see some important issues come to a head and it is vital we have Councillors who work in the interests of the community and who do not just tow the party line.

    Parliamentary candidate, Rosie Shimell thanks Vince Cable for his support in what will be an important issue for the future of Spelthorne and Sunbutry in particular. If this significant piece of Green Belt is lost, nowhere in Spelthorne will be safe from opportuinistic developers after a fast buck.

    Vince Cable has offered strong support to local residents in their opposition to housing development on the Green Belt At Kempton Park. Below is the text of a letter that he has sent which makes it clear that he will do what he can to make sure our Green Belt is protected from opportunitic development which would be unsustainable and do long term damage to the local environment.

    We set out below what the Liberal Democrats will be working towards in the next four years. We feel these issues are important to the residents of Spelthorne, and we are prepared to engage and work with other groups on the council where they share similar aims.

    It was a real honour to be selected as the Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Candidate for Spelthorne. I have joined a committed team of local councillors and campaigners, working to stand up for your area. We are taking the lead in holding the Tories to account for the terrible decisions they are making running Spelthorne council. From plans to build all over the green belt, to voting for massive pay rises for their own councillors at the same time as cutting services for local people.

  • Surveilance camera
    Article: Feb 15, 2015

    Sunbury residents were horrified by the sudden appearance of 69 cameras in the area. They actually stretched from Hampton Church to the Shears junction, with the biggest concentration around Sunbury Cross. No doubt what they were for: it was all to do with the Kempton Park Green Belt Development

    The aim was not simply to count traffic flows but to monitor traffic movement. If each camera only recorded for 12 hours that is still 750 hours of data to monitor. This sort of survey does not come cheap. An operation like this costs tens of thousands of pounds, but the Tories say 'Nothing is happening' .

    Cllr. Bernie Spoor is going to courrt to appeal against a decision of Spelthorne Council. They have approved yet another alcohol seller on The Parade at The Cross. This makes four shops selling alcohol within 50 yards. The Cross is a recognised high crime area and the easy availability of alcohol is one of the causes. Spelthorne Licensing Committee does have some powers to reject an application. But as usual they took the easiest option.

  • Sandra Dunn with lorry ban sign
    Article: Feb 15, 2015

    At last we have our lorry ban in Halliford Village. Sandra Dunn say she is delighted that the ban has been put in at last. Liberal Democrats at both Surrey and Spelthorne have been working with local residents on this issue for several years. We have also raised questions as to why it took the Tories so long to put it in place.

  • No to Charlton Lane Incinerator (Eco Park)
    Article: Sep 20, 2014

    Set out below is a the history of the Eco Park proposal over the last seven years. From the first hint of an incinerator in the Surrey Waste Plan the local Liberal Democrats have opposed this development and tried to get Spelthorne Council to do something about it. It is a sad story of Conservative controlled councils who stuck their heads in the sand or alternatively actually wanted the development to go ahead. Either way the community has been completely let down by the people who are meant to represent their best interests.
