CALA HOMES COXBRIDGE DEVELOPMENT INVITATION TO VIEW PLANS 11th DECEMBER

20MPH SPEED REDUCTIONS NOW IN FORCE - UPDATE 23rd NOVEMBER
There has been a delay in installing the signs limiting/delimiting this area in Castle Street due to the availability of two special posts - these apparently have arrived and are due to be installed shortly with the signage.
The new 20MPH speed restrictions came into force throughout the centre of Farnham and part way up Crondall Lane at the end of October - however without any policing, it doesn't seem to have made any difference to the speed that the majority of motorists do.
We have requested to Surrey County Council Highways that the electronic speed sign be replaced by one showing "20" MPH - however all that has happened so far is that the 30 MPH one has been removed and nothing has replaced it as of the 12th of November. This was followed up with SCC again on the 4th of December.
PAVEMENT IN CRONDALL LANE - UPDATE 4th DECEMBER
Pavement reconstruction commenced Monday the 27th of November for 1 month from 8am to 5pm - a copy of the announcement is here. Latest is that they hope to finish by the 9th of December
We had complained to SCCH that the state of the pavement in Crondall Lane, from opposite Beavers Road to the junction with West Street, left a lot to be desired. It is in a disgraceful state and needed urgent attention.
MANHOLE COVERS IN CRONDALL LANE - UPDATE 4th DECEMBER.
According to an email received from SCC they look to be "fixed" again.
Two of the manhole covers had again sunk - yet again! These are situated just beyond the Dippenhall Business Park if travelling to Farnham and are in such a position in the middle of the road, that they are impossible to miss if there is oncoming traffic. These had also been reported to SCCH.
