Hindu Temple Expansion Print E-mail
Saturday, 12 March 2016 13:00

Stoneleigh and Auriol Residents’ Association is very concerned about the planning application that has been submitted to expand the Sri Raja Rajeswari Amman Hindu Temple in Dell Lane Stoneleigh. We discussed the matter at our General Committee meeting on 12 February and voted unanimously to object to the application. Our Chairman, Natalie Rogers, formally lodged an objection on behalf of the Association on the Epsom and Ewell Borough Council planning website on 16 February.

It is clear that our position is strongly supported by residents and Stoneleigh Broadway traders: we have received many messages expressing deep concern about the planning application, which is scheduled to be discussed by the Council Planning Committee at the Town hall on 16 April.

If you wish to register your objection to the application please click on the ‘Make a Public Comment’ button on the Planning Application Page on the Epsom and Ewell Borough Council website.

We will also be discussing the matter at our Annual General Meeting this Friday 18 March at St. John’s Parish Centre by Stoneleigh Station. All members of the Association are invited to attend and doors open at 7.45pm.

Crossrail 2 Consultation Print E-mail

Have you had your say on Crossrail 2? PLEASE READ and RESPOND if you live in the consultation area!

The Consultation for Crossrail 2 is due to close on Friday 8 January 2016 and if you are a resident of Stoneleigh and Auriol who uses the train services, especially to commute, please ensure you take a look and leave your feedback.

Many are making the assumption that Crossrail 2 will mean increased capacity, a more regular service both peak and off peak and another route to other parts of London. However that does not seem to be the intention in the information posted as part of the consultation online.

If you refer to the 'Crossrail 2 fact sheet - Services between Worcester Park and Epsom' on page 1 there is a table showing the number of trains to Waterloo and of which will be Crossrail 2 services. The information seems to imply that there will no longer be trains running directly to Waterloo so people will have to change at either Raynes Park, Wimbledon or Clapham Junction for Vauxhall and Waterloo services. This will also to be the case with other regional branches. Whether these stations could cope with the extra capacity should be questioned.

Please click on the link below to review for the next stage of the Crossrail 2 consultations and the attached documents relating to the proposed scheme and Epsom branch, and leave your feedback before the deadline:

People with balloonsEpsom Mental Health Week (EMHW) was established to promote a better understanding of mental health and to reduce the misunderstanding, fear and stigma which surround it. EMHW will be held through to 11 October 2015.

The theme of EMHW this year is "Days of Hope… when recovery can begin". When we are in pain or suffering emotionally or mentally, one of the most precious gifts we may receive is hope and throughout the week this theme will be explored through talks, workshops, art, music and much more throughout the week.
