Guildford Borough - Surrey
Meetings & Reports 2021
This was collected by residents, a week before lockdown. Fantastic effort.
The war memorial was professionally cleaned and restored
The names of villagers who served in WW1 and WW2, now clearly visible.
The project was finished in time for the WW2 Centenary marking the end of the war, 100 years after the event in 2018.
As part of the restoration the electrics and lamp were reinstated.
After 5 years of data collection, part of the B3000 is made an Air Quality Management Area. No workable solution has yet been implemented by GBC.
Cllr Sharples facilitates the design and installation of a new village sign. The opening ceremony is well attended.
Roadside shrubbery is cleared to improve pedestrian safety.
Ditch deepened to improve drainage.
A handrail is erected at Watts Cemetery to improve safety for visitors
A camera sign with the 30 MPH VAS was agreed but unfortunately, SCC replaced it, without the sign, as lack of police checks meant the B3000 failed the criteria test.
A new fence and extended activity centre is added to the play area in phase one of the scheme. A Zip-wire will hopefully follow in phase 2.
The silt was removed and re-sited
Minor landscape improvements to surroundings - and today the Withies pond is an attractive feature for residents and wildlife
Result- Clerk to spend 2 hours a week in Compton, would copy in relevant councillors on all correspondence and PC to consider monthly meetings if needed
Compton Parish Council contributed towards an independent SHMA carried out by GRA (Guildford Residents' Association) a traffic survey and a landscape assessment.
Residents came out in force to help clear the woodlands of the dreaded Himalayan Balsam.
Drinks afterwards at the Withies made the hard work worthwhile!
Compton Parish Council website was produced. We hope you find it useful.
