Continued cuts to our funding, rising costs and increasing demand for key services means that the need for Surrey County Council to find savings has reached unprecedented levels. This year alone we need to make savings of more than £100m.

We are determined to meet our responsibilities and will continue to support our residents as effectively as we can, but despite having achieved £450m worth of savings since 2010, changes to services are still needed. Sometimes, this may mean radically rethinking how public services are provided across the county – closer working between different organisations, placing services where they are convenient for communities and adapting to people’s changing needs.

We want to hear ideas about how we can change services and work in different ways. We will be highlighting ways in which we can work together to re-shape how services are provided across Surrey. There will also be opportunities through specific consultations and events that you can find and participate in here.

We Asked, You Said, We Did

Here are some of the issues we have consulted on and their outcomes. See all outcomes

We Asked

We asked for your views on our proposals for improving road safety in Coleford Bridge Road, Mytchett.

You Said

The results showed a clear preference for Option 2 which included the introduction of additional road markings and vehicle activated signs.

We Did

Given the result of the public consultation, Surrey County Council are progressing with Option 2. The lining parts of the scheme have already been completed. The remaining works, including installation of a new post and two new vehicle activated signs, is expected to be finished by April 2017.

We Asked

We asked via this website, social media, posters displayed in all 58 libraries and by contacting resident groups including our highways customer panel members:-

Are you in favour of the Council switching off street lights for part of the night where deemed safe to do so in order to reduce energy bills and reduce CO2 emissions?

You Said

Nearly half of the 850 respondents were in favour of switching off many lights and overall 76% were in favour of switching off at least some lights.

We Did

The Council's Cabinet approved the decision to implement Part Night Lighting across Surrey at its meeting on 18 October.  The full report, including the reasons for implementing this, can be found on our website

The council will be implementing part night lighting across the county between December 2016 and February 2017 depending on where you live.  The full work timetable including a list of roads subject to the part night lighting is available on our website.

 

We Asked

Whether Sunnydown School should be redesignated as Communication and Interaction Needs (CoIN).

You Said

83% of responses agreed with the proposal.  17% disagreed.  Concerns were raised about the impact on existing pupils.  However there are no plans to change the pupils currently attending the school, and these pupils fit within the CoIN need description so would be unaffected.

We Did

Statutory notices were published on 12 April for a further 4 week period during which interested parties can make representations.
