See information re Smart Motorways on the Highways agency website
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org and Jeannie will put you in contact with the Speed Watch team
Residents who would like more information on recycling can find details:
Councillor Tony Elias, Chairman of the Community Services Committee, said: "Our recycling service allows you to recycle much more from home - please try to recycle as much as possible."

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.
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.
