02/02/2017 - We Need your Vote! Smallfield Community Art Garden



Smallfield Community Art Garden is a new initiative to support the Health and Wellbeing of the residents of Smallfield.

On the 10th January 2017 a community consultation on the garden was held to meet local residents, share the details on the project and hear what you like to see to support the design of the garden.

The new garden will be created on the green space running alongside Smallfield Surgery and Centenary Hall car park.


Two designs have been created and we need your vote.


Garden Design A

Garden Design B


Please pop along to the Smallfield Centenary Hall, Wheelers Lane, Smallfield, RH6 9PT to see the final two designs and post your vote.

Voting is open to everyone, of any age, resident in the village of Smallfield.

The deadline for Voting is Monday 13th February 2017.


16/01/2017 - Community Speedwatch volunteers


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 burstowpc@btconnect.com and Jeannie will put you in contact with the Speed Watch team

01/09/2016 - Protect Yourself from Rogue Traders


The Parish Council has received several reports about residents being duped by traders offering new driveways or claiming they have spotted a problem with your roof and offering to repair it at a discount price.


To protect yourself from opportunist traders such as this there are a few things you can do to protect yourself


1) Never accept unsolicited work from random house callers

2) Check Tandridge District Council's list of approved businesses

3) Use personal recommendations from friends and family

4) Never pay in advance or by cash



28/06/2016 - Overgrown or overhanging trees and hedges


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.




22/06/2016 - Council Tax Phone Scam


Council Tax phone scam is once again operating inner area.


Elderly residents are being called by someone claiming to work for Tandridge District Council. They are offering residents a reduced council tax band and a refund if they pay a £65 fee. They are then asked for their bank details. Unfortunately we are aware of at least one resident who has paid the fee.


Tandridge District Council will never contact residents to ask for bank or other personal details. They always ask residents tp call 01883 722000 to speak to staff so they can be sure they are talking to council officers.


If you know of anyone who is contacted please ask them to call Consumer Direct 03454 040506, visit www.adviceguide.org.uk or call Surrey Police on 101.




25/05/2016 - Smallfield Neighbourhood Watch Coordinator


Smallfield runs a strong Neighbourhood Watch scheme, to do this successfully it requires as many residents in the village and surrounding area to join in, the idea is to have as many roads represented as possible.


If your road does not yet have a coordinator and you wish to put your name forward please email smallfieldnw@gmail.com

15/01/2016 - The Surrey Green Network


The Surrey Green Network is a group of local residents encouraging others to reduce what they're throwing away, from wasting less food to recycling and reusing more to composting at home.


The Network volunteers attend local events, fairs, festivals and community days with an information stall, activities, advice and plenty of tools to help other get started in wasting less.


Volunteers are supported by a dedicated Project Coordinator and can choose how much time they spend with the team on days that suit them. They also earn rewards the more time they spend volunteering.


We would really appreciate any help letting local residents know about this opportunity. For a registration form, or just to find out more, please e-mail info@surreygreennetwork.com




05/01/2016 - Tandridge District Council's Local Plan


Tandridge's Local Plan will set out a vision for the district for the next 20 years and provide a framework for the future improvement, development and local protection of our area and the Green Belt.


We are asking anyone with an interest in the area to give their views on various approaches to how our area is improved, developed and protected. The consultation runs until 26 February 2016.


Burstow Parish Council has submitted a response to Question 1 - Issues facing the district. The comments can be viewed by clicking here x




Help shape the future of Tandridge


If you have views about the future improvement, development and local protection of our area and the Green Belt we want to hear them.


As part of our Local Plan consultation Tandridge District Council is asking anyone with an interest in the area to give their views on various approaches to how our area is improved, developed and protected.


Visit our website www.tandridge.gov.uk/localplan to register and have your say before 26 February 2016. The final, agreed Local Plan will set out the vision for the district for the next 20 years so it's important that you give your views.


This is a chance for local people to have their say on setting local priorities and planning policies, giving local control over how we provide for both people and place in the future.


Without a Local Plan any future development would be decided solely in line with the National Planning Policy Framework, with little reference to local needs or views.


For this first round of consultation we are interested in what you think about:

  • A range of possible approaches to meeting the area's needs over the next 20 years
  • Whether we can meet all our development needs within Tandridge
  • Affordable local housing
  • Our local environment, its greenness and openness
  • The amount of schools, doctors and transport we will need in future
  • A range of other challenges facing our area.

This first phase consultation:

  • Will not change current planning rules
  • Will not change the boundaries of our towns and villages
  • Will not change the protection of the Green Belt or put the Green Belt at additional risk
  • Will not set where new building will take place not how much there will be

So register today on http://consult.tandridge.gov.uk/portaland have your say.
