Cranleigh Society pub Meet up Wednesday 26th April from 6pm

Hello all – it’ll be the fourth Wednesday in April next week so do come along and join us in the Three Horseshoes pub from 6pm.

The Parish and Borough Councillors are now ‘in purdah’ meaning they are not working until after 4th May elections. Whatever your opinions we can chat casually and maybe enjoy a meal at the pub as well.

What is really affecting you these days?  How do you think Cranleigh Society could help? What should we campaign about most urgently?  Will you help?

We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday.

Review timescales

28/02/23 – 08/05/23  Consultation on new boundaries

01/08/23 – 09/10/23  Consultation on draft recommendations

09/01/24  Final recommendations published

The Commission is the independent body that draws these boundaries. It is reviewing Surrey to make sure councillors represent about the same number of electors, and that division arrangements help the council work effectively. It wants to be sure that its proposals reflect community ties and identities.

The Commission is interested in views on which communities should be part of the same division. What facilities do people share, such as parks, leisure centres or schools and shopping areas? What issues do neighbouring communities face that they have in common, such as high numbers of visitors or heavy traffic? Have there been new housing or commercial developments that have changed the focus of communities? And are there roads, rivers, railways or other features that people believe form strong boundaries between neighbourhoods?

The Commission will use local views to help it draw up proposals for new division boundaries. There will be a further round of consultation once the Commission has drawn up those proposals.

This electoral review will make recommendations for the electoral arrangements of the county council only. The Commission will seek to use the district ward boundaries where possible as the building blocks for the new county council divisions. For Tandridge, a separate electoral review of the district council is ongoing and is due to be completed in October 2023. New wards in Tandridge will be taken into account before finalising the county council divisions.
