5g Masts

The council are receiving a number of applications from telecommunication companies for 5g masts and accompanying cabinets which has led to a flood of objections from residents. However each application must be considered on its own merits although the council have limited power to object.

The Chairman David Triggs said that whilst accepting that the development of 5g technology is inevitable and desirable  it was agreed to object to the proposed mast on Cheam Road adjacent to Cuddington Croft school, this was seconded by former mayor Brian Kibble and supported by all present.

#Residents Against Surrey Single Unitary

Dear All,

Today we have launched the #Residents Against Surrey Single Unitary (#RASSU)
campaign and would ask that you sign the petition but also share this with
your own RA, Zone Reps as well as your own personal networks. 


**********************************************************************

In July this year Surrey County Council announced its intention to abolish
the 11 Borough and District Councils, replacing them with a single council
representing Surrey's 1.2 million residents.

They have no mandate to do this. The establishment of a single unitary
council will erode democracy in Surrey. In response to this #Residents
Against Surrey Single Unitary (#RASSU) has been launched. You can find out
more information at: https://rassu.org.uk/

Travel proposal for Ewell Village High Street

Dear Residents,

Following strong feedback opposing the temporary bus gate in the High Street it has been decided that this scheme will not be implemented as it currently stands. However EEBC will continue to engage with SCC to look at alternative schemes to aid social distancing measures and promote cycling and walking and to take road capacity away from motorists as directed by Central Government.

Further information can be found on SCC website: surreycc.gov.uk

Updates from John Beckett

Epsom and Ewell Borough Council has been managing its resources to support the community during the Covid-19 emergency.

48 members of staff were shifted to work solely on the emergency response to the pandemic. An incident management team was set up under the Chief Executive.

A borough emergency control centre was set up consisting of three cells (welfare, information and support, and environment).

A community hub was created to co-ordinate support for the borough's most vulnerable residents.

The Town Hall was closed to the public and staff were relocated to work from home. Committee meetings except Planning meetings were temporarily suspended.

The community Hub has been the centre for contacting all E&E residents identified by EEBC, GP's, local charities etc.as vulnerable. Residents have been contacted and asked if they have/need support with their shopping, collecting prescriptions.

470 Bus route

The 470 bus route is going to be extended to Epsom Hospital. It will no longer be necessary to change buses in Epsom in order to get to the hospital. However, the construction work which will take place on the hospital site means that the timing of the extended route will be delayed.

This was successfully lobbied on behalf of our Nonsuch residents.
