    Article: Jan 1, 2014

    Spelthorne Liberal Democrats are delighted to have selected Rosie Shimell as their Prospective Parliamentary Candidate in the run up to the 2015 General Election. Rosie was the clear winner when Local Liberal Democrats met to decide the issue a fortnight before Christmas.

    Rosie (25 ) works as Consultant on Health Policy and has been a Councillor in the London Borough of Southwark since 2010. Health and the environment are key concerns for her. Locally she is very concerned by Tory led attacks on our Environment and Green Belt.

    Conservatives have launched their most serious attack on the Green Belt for a decade. They want to review all the Green Belt in Spelthorne to see how much can be sold out to developers. Sunbury is at the top of their hit list.

    Spelthorne has already refused to rule out the prospect of 900 new homes on Kempton Park and land at the end of Vicarage road in Sunbury Common must also now be considered to be under serious threat.

    Each Year Spelthorne has to submit an Annual Monitoring Report (AMR) to government. Included within this are the details of the number of new houses built and estimates for future years. These figures show that in the next few years Spelthorne Borough Council is planning a huge bulge in the projected number of completions way above target.

    Article: Sep 1, 2013



    Liberal Democrats are deeply concerned by the proposal to shut both Fire Stations in Spelthorne and replace them by one on the A308 between Ashford and Staines. Of even more concern is the loss of one of our two Fire Engines. It means we will have only one in the Borough. Surrey assures us that we will be able to get extra cover in time from places like Chertsey.

    A Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV) ban in Feltham Road Ashford has come up several times as an issue. Just before the election it came up again. Cllr Ian Beardsmore raised serious issues about where the displaced traffic would go. Initially he was told there would be another look at the problem that 'Other look' was very quick and it has been decided to consult on the scheme.

    Article: Jun 15, 2013

    Liberal Democrat Cllr Ian Beardsmore has attacked the previous and current Secretaries of State John Prescott and Eric Pickles for failing to protect our Green spaces over the last decade.

    Speaking at a Surrey-wide conference organised by CPRE (Campaign to Protect Rural England) he slammed both for selling out to developers and criticised the way housing demand was assessed. He went on to accuse the pair of being the Tweedledum and Tweedledee of an environmental disaster which had now reached crisis point.
