Redehall Road Car park TA/2017/2528
23rd January 2018


For quite a while now there has been insufficient parking in Smallfield, especially around school opening and closing times. Several accidents have happened and numerous near misses.


The Parish Council, working in collaboration with Burstow School, have submitted a planning application to build a 55-bay car park along the front section of the School's playing field on Redehall Road.



To help avoid confusion over detail we have put together the following list to answer some questions. You are also welcome to contact the Parish Clerk if you would like any more information.


  • The car park will only occupy the front section and not reduce the space that is actually used for sport
  • The car park will be free and have no time restriction
  • It will be fenced off and locked each night
  • A height restrictor will prevent the car park being used by vans/lorries
  • Low level solar lighting will illuminate the way without lighting up the village
  • A new fence will be built separating the car park from the playing field
  • Burstow School will ask staff who are currently parking on the streets to use the new car park. This will take approximately 22 vehicles off the road each school day


Community Speedwatch volunteers
16th January 2017


Local volunteers have been out and about in Smallfield helping to prevent traffic speeding through our Village.

To continue this very visible deterrent on a regular basis we need more volunteers who are available during the day. The more people who can help the less time each person needs to contribute. Getting started is easy, you just need to attend a ONE HOUR training session with Surrey Police at Reigate station and then you will work in a small team at mutually agreed times in the Village.


So if you have some time available (doesn't matter how much or little) get in touch with the Parish Clerk on 01342 841880 or and Jeannie will put you in contact with the Speed Watch team

Overgrown or overhanging trees and hedges
28th June 2016


The Parish Council would like to draw peoples attention to overgrown/overhanging trees and hedges. Pedestrians should be able to pass safely and with ease along pavements but unfortunately this is often not the case. We would ask all residents to please check and ensure that any vegetation on their property is not causing an obstruction and putting pedestrians in danger.


If your hedge is growing rapidly in this wet but warm weather please can you keep it cut back. Now that June is drawing to a close there should not be a problem with nesting birds and it is considered perfectly acceptable to carry out a side cut.


Many thanks for your help.


Croydon Barn Lane Closure


Start date:Monday 3 June 2019


Duration: For 2 days, 7.30am - 5.30pm


Croydon Barn Lane will be closed between Church Road and Bones Lane whilst resurfacing works are carried out.


People travelling to and from their home or buisness will be able to get through when it is safe to do so.


Surrey Highways has been given extra funding to repair roads which have suffered damage due to bad weather. The money has been used to form a program of works called 'Severe Weather Recovery Programme' and Surrey Highways are aiming to deliver this as quickly as possible.


Sometimes work is delayed by bad weather. If this happens, Surrey will aim to give advance warning.


It is essential to keep the road free from parked vehicles. Please park somewhere else otherwise you vehicle may be towed away to a nearby road.
