New Bus for Stanwell Moor.

 

Residents in Stanwell Moor are to gain a new bus service which will make it easier to get to local hospitals, shops and the airport for work, Surrey County Council has announced.

Passengers will be able to use the 446 bus to reach Ashford and St Peter’s hospitals and St. David’s Medical Centre in Stanwell as well Heathrow Airport.

The new service came about with financial contributions from Heathrow Airport’s £1 million Local Transport Development Fund, Surrey County Council and bus company Abellio. The decision was made after residents responded to a bus review launched with the aim of saving local taxpayers £2 million while maintaining services residents rely on the most.

Mike Goodman, Surrey County Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment and Planning, said: “This is great news for Stanwell Moor. We’ve listened to residents and met local councillors who told us there was a demand for this service, which is why we have worked hard with Heathrow and Abellio to introduce it.


“However, it really is a case of use it or lose it. We can’t afford to subsidise under used buses as we face huge pressure on our budgets from rising demand for social care and school places. So if after a year we find it hasn’t been used enough we’ll have to reassess the situation.”

Simon Earles, Planning & Surface Access Director for Heathrow, said: “This new route not only provides a vital link for Stanwell Moor, it is a key part of our plans to persuade 3,800 more Heathrow colleagues to choose sustainable transport. Over the past ten years, Heathrow has spent over £25 million on public transport projects, and because of that, single occupancy car journeys by colleagues has been reduced by 10%, and passenger public transport use has increased to over 40%.

“We have ambitious plans to do more, and will work with partners like Surrey Council to reduce car use, reduce congestion and improve air quality around our communities.”

The bus will run every hour on Monday to Saturday between Heathrow Terminal 5, Staines, Chertsey and Woking, with the service starting on Saturday 29 August.

The new service will run through Stanwell Moor from early morning until mid-evening to enable people to reach Staines and Heathrow for work or shopping, while connections are also available at Terminal 5 for other parts of the airport.

More information about the Local Transport Development Fund can be found on Heathrow’s website.

The fact that we have been able to get a bus service for the Moor, despite efforts to stop all bus service has been achieved due to the efforts of local residents.

 

One of the main forces in the campaign to keep some form of local transport was Kath Baker, our thanks go to her and others who have been able to achieve such a notable success.

Parking update.

3rd August

 

Following the Public Meeting regarding Parking in Horton Road, a meeting was held at Heathrow with local Councillors, County Councillors, Spelthorne Officers and Heathrow representatives. Spelthorne have carried out investigations into not just Horton Road but Spout Lane and are preparing a action plan to present to the Council.

Spelthorne are arranging a meeting with UCH to make them aware of the effect that their employees parking is having in Horton road.

Heathrow are undertaking a study to discover the extent of the problem in the surrounding area. The provision of land for minicabs to park is also being examined ; Simon Earles from Heathrow has thoughts on this matter which have to be examined carefully. Heathrow are preparing an information leaflet to be distributed to all Residents.

The next Public meeting will be announced as soon as a date has been agreed ; prior to that however information has to be gathered so as to be able to present to Residents a coherent plan to deal with the problem.

 

Any further news will be published to the Residents.

Leisure Centre Petition

 

Vicki Kapoor has written :-

I have put a Petition together For A Much Needed Leisure Centre Within Stanwell  a Paper Version and Online , I am awaiting the Online Link From Spelthorne Council in which once receive I will forward to you all to sign. The Paper Version I will  leave in various local shops, schools. Doctor Surgery ect.. for all to sign to give all an opportunity to sign the petition who do not have Internet access

To ask Spelthorne council to provide a much needed  Leisure centre in  Stanwell

The leisure centre will be the hub for activity within the local community   and will offer a wide range of facilities for the young and old  from a gym, swimming pool, dance and exercise classes crèche facilities to Indoor and outdoor activities  such as football and athletics to social  evenings for all ages and holiday activities for children helping working parents during school term time , this will encourage   the community of all ages to lead a fit and healthy lifestyle and this will also bring the community together and lead to social interaction  within the community . with current lifestyles the leisure centre will also give an opportunity for families to participate together  in having family time and a  work- life balance and for all  to learn lifelong skills such as swimming

Stanwell desperately needs a leisure centre as more housing more people but lacks facilities , The current leisure centres in Spelthorne are not feasible and not accessible and a  leisure is desperately needed in Stanwell.

See below for news of the 441 bus service.

Members of Stanwell Moor Residents Association attended a Council meeting at Spelthorne who had called the bus company to explain their decision to end the 441 route through the Village. This is a short report of the meeting :-

The Cllrs who spoke in our support were Cllrs  Bushnell, Grant, Saliagopoulos  and Cllr Taylor all saying how disgraceful it was that the 441 was removed from the Village, without any consultation, (and replaced with the 557 which is no good), the dangers in crossing the dual carriageway, especially for children and the elderly, no bus shelter or crossing, not going past Docs, or getting children to/from school.  The representative from Abellio was Alistair Willis, Paul Millin and Laurie James from Surrey County Council and County Councillor Mike Goodman. SCC have funded the 591 to run for a short time in the afternoons here Mon-Fri.  We will have to wait for any results from this meeting which was SBC’s Overview and Scrutiny Committee, their Chairman is Cllr Broom, as SCC were going away to discuss all the points made.  Maybe at the end of the day we will get a better bus service who knows at this stage, if we do not then it is not for the lack of trying.  Cllr Bushnell even asked for a shuttle bus to assist, but not a lot of response came for that from SCC.  SCC subsidise buses to the tune of £3.35 million.
