We held our second post ‘lockdown’ executive meeting at the beginning of this month. We decided that in future we will start our meetings at the earlier time of 7.30pm. Our meetings last for two hours and are held on the first Tuesday of each month. Therefore, our next meeting will be held at St Paul’s centre 280, Hook Road, KT9 1PF on the 7th of December at 7.30pm.
You are all welcome to attend.
On the 18th of October we learnt that Councillor Caroline Kerr from Canbury Ward is stepping down as Leader of the Council. We were surprised to learn this as she has only been in this post for a relatively short time.
The good news is that she has been replaced by Councillor Andreas Kirsch who is a Councillor in Chessington South. We have always found Andreas to be very conscientious. Our residents’ association wish him all the best in what, we are sure, will be a challenging time for him.
Details of the Ward Panel Police meeting held on the 25th of October are available under the Police section.
The Lidl planning application to demolish two semi detached houses in order to create additional car parking spaces has been refused by the RBK planning department.

This planning application has been refused. You can read the many reasons for rejection under planning news. However, the applicant has appealed. The Inspectorate in Bristol is opening a virtual inquiry at 10.00am on 21 September 2021.
What is the Air Pollution Level Where you live?
In the Times newspaper last week there was an interesting article. The Imperial College London have a website where you can input your postcode and house number to get a report on levels of three pollutants: fine particles known as PM2.5’s, larger particles called PM10’s and NO2,nitrogen dioxide, a gas that in urban areas is omitted largely by diesel vehicles. Imperial College London are encouraging estate agents to include this information when they put properties on the market. The website address is addresspollution.org
