    The Lib Dems on Surrey County Council are proposing an amendment to the Council's budget to invest in tackling road safety problems across the county.

    Recognising that there is huge frustration in communities about the difficulties in getting road safety schemes funded in a timely manner, the Lib Dems are proposing a Road Safety Fund to ensure that local communities can get the speed signs, crossings or other safety measures which many residents call for. Where there is local support, 20 mph zones, could also be introduced using this potential Road Safety Fund.

    Article: Feb 5, 2021

    After a Lib Dem request to the Chief Executive of Runnymede Borough Council, we are please to see that parking charges have been suspended at the Library Car Park in Chertsey (next to the River Bourne gym), whilst the Covid-19 vaccine rollout is being carried out at Chertsey Hall.

    Councillor Sylvia Whyte said "I felt that it was important to waiver charges at this car park whilst people were attending their vaccine appotment. Although it is only a small gesture it meant that people do not have to worry about their car park ticket running out, if they are longer than they thought when they go for their jab. It also helps the staff and volunteers on duty at the centre as well."
