BAA Heathrow Public Consultation :-

Thursday 11th September Stanwell Moor Village Hall 2.00pm - 9.00pm.





Charles Morris application.

Charles Morris have applied for permission to operate 24 hours a day 7 days a week shredding / crushing works,  provided by an un-named company. Residents living close to the operation in Horton road have been sent planning application information, with a request to object if they see fit. The Residents Association will be objecting in the strongest possible terms, listing a number of unanswered questions and concerns. The Village is already blighted with many varients caused by outside commercial interests ( Bretts, Heathrow,Taxies,UCH and Morris ) we do not wish to see other operations add to the decline of decent living conditions.

Below is a suggestion of the points that you could raise with Surrey should you wish to object. Any such objections can be e- mailed to :- This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

or by mail to :-

Surrey County Council, Planning Development Control Team, Planning & Development Group, County Hall, Kingston upon Thames, KT1 2DY. Again you must include the Ref.

Stanwell Moor is already blighted by a number of factors, not least the noise pollution from Heathrow Airport. We have at one end of the Village, nearest to the M25 Bretts Aggregates, the other end of the Village, nearest to Stanwell Moor Road Charles Morris Fertilisers, the applicants. Both Bretts and Charles Morris Fertilisers cause a blight on the Village by way of dust that is caused by their workings. I know from personal experience how much dust is caused by the amount that is deposited on my car , and house windows. This also affects my neighbours. We have recently had problems with Taxis parking on Horton road causing a substantial section, at times to be reduced to one lane only. The behaviour of some of the drivers also leave something to be desired. Thus I am trying to explain the amount of “ pollution “ the Village suffers at present.


The proposed works is to be undertaken by an un-named company. Who is taking overall responsibility should matters need to be taken to them. I wonder why this company is not named ? What is their history regarding good practice, Community co-operation etc. Being un-named I am unable to form any conclusion.


The MRF building operating 24 hours a day seven days a week ( 365 days a year ? ) . There will be noise pollution caused by such workings, that whilst during the day MAY be unobtrusive, at night however it will be different. Neither Charles Morris nor the un-named company can provide any comfort in this regard, and any modelling would be suspect as not being based in reality. Noise is thus a great concern.


The application states that they do not seek to open the site to HGV during the extended hours. Whilst this may be true, there will be I am sure occasions when it is claimed that any movement that happens outside the permitted hours was just a one off, these again I am sure will be repeated. There will also be an increased volume of HGV traffic into the site during the day, causing more problems in Horton road. Traffic movement is a concern.


The MRF building will cause dust pollution 24 hours a day. Although they may claim that there will be none/little how much is little ? NO building will be capable of capturing all dust that is produced. Dust is of great concern.


Lighting proposed, again there will be light pollution at night. Whilst this on its own may not be of great concern to some, when added to the sum of light pollution at present ( Heathrow ), it aggravates the sum  of the whole. Light pollution is a concern.



Thus in conclusion I object most strongly to the application.



BAA Heathrow Public Consultation :-

Thursday 11th September Stanwell Moor Village Hall 2.00pm - 9.00pm.





Date of next Residents Meeting. :-

Tuesday 2nd September.


Mins of the last meeting may be found on the Meetings page under previous meetings.


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.






Staines: park all day Sunday for just £2

Spelthorne Council has announced that visitors to Staines-upon-Thames will now be able to park all day on a Sunday in the Council’s town centre car parks for just £2.

The new charge is being introduced as a trial for six months. Previously the charge for parking all day on a Sunday in these car parks varied from between £7 and £12.

The new charge applies to the following car parks:-

· Bridge Street, TW18 4TG

· Tothill multi-storey, TW18 4PN

· Elmsleigh multi-storey and surface, TW18 4TL

· Kingston Road, TW18 4LQ

· Riverside surface, TW18 4UD

Cabinet Member for Parking Services, Cllr Daxa Patel said: “It’s a priority for us as a council to offer value for money and I think that residents and visitors from further afield will see that this really is an excellent deal. Staines-upon-Thames has a fantastic range of shops, restaurants and leisure facilities and having such affordable parking on a Sunday makes it an even more attractive place to visit.”


For more information, call Parking Services on 01784 457805.

Heathrow resurfacing and resulting noise disturbance.

Following our communications with you last year, I’m writing to confirm that the resurfacing of the northern runway will be going ahead this year.  You’ll be aware that last year we resurfaced Heathrow’s southern runway as part of essential maintenance work that needs to be undertaken every 10 years.  As I explained then, in 2014 we would be resurfacing the northern runway.  This work is due to start soon and will mean that the night-time runway alternation pattern will be disrupted during this time.


Work will start on the northern runway on 23 March and will be completed by 31 October 2014.  During this time, the northern runway will be closed from 10.30pm until 6am five nights a week (Sunday night to Friday morning).  During this time all flights will use the southern runway. For the remaining two nights a week from Friday evening to Sunday morning, runway alternation will operate as normal.  The daytime alternation schedule is unaffected.


Key areas affected to the west are Stanwell Moor, Old Windsor and Wraysbury. I appreciate this will be unwelcome news for residents in the north of the borough and I am sorry for the disturbance this will cause.  Unfortunately the works are unavoidable.


We have kept members of the Heathrow Airport Consultative Committee informed about the runway works since last year and are placing newspaper advertisements next week in the local press to tell residents it’s happening (attached for your information).  The information is also available on our website at heathrow.com/noise.

Stanwell Moor Halt

For information about the Halt please see our links page where you can learn all about the old railway line which it was hoped, among other things, would attract workers to the explosives factory in Poyle. Links



Points of Interest.

On the Points of Interest page we have included two societies, that, although they are in another borough it was thought that they may be of interest to residents.


Use it or lose it !

We are very fortunate to have our own Post Office in the Village, however in order to ensure that it is not one of the many Offices that have been closed it is important that we support it.

Did you know for example that you may withdraw cash as you would from other Bank machines, the only bank that is not in the system is HSBC. You may also pay in money to you account at the Post Office.




If you have any issues that concern you with regards to the Village please do contact us and we will see if it can be discussed at the next Residents meeting.




Spelthorne Walking for Health.

There was a walk organised by SWfH today, Thursday 12th April, through the Village. A group of about twenty with a leader met up in the morning for a pleasant walk on a very agreeable day. Should you wish to know more about the walks or indeed participate then go to  www.spelthorne.gov.uk/walkingforhealth or if you prefer or telephone 01784-446433.






Recognising a STROKE.

You will find on the Points of Interest page information that will help in the identification of a person having suffered a stroke. Early intervention can save lives.


Key Services - Who does What ???

You may have been in the position of wanting to speak to someone about fly tipping or litter or noise and nuisance and not been sure who to contact, Spelthorne Council or Surrey Council. By going to Points of Interest you will be able to find out which Council has responsibility.
