Fetcham Post Box at the Former Post Office 

A recent communication from Royal Mail states "The post box is currently on private land which can cause issues in the future. Royal Mail wish to remove the box from private land and relocate it onto public land at a location close to the new Post office. Currently, an engineer from Royal Mail’s in-house engineering team is due to visit the site to carry out a CAT scan and H&S checks of the location Surrey Highways has approved. This should be completed within the next 5 weeks. We are currently in the process of issuing the works licence to the land owner for the removal of the box at the former Post Office. Once both the location has been cleared by the engineering team and we have the works licence signed and returned, we will be in a position to arrange for the relocation to proceed. If everything runs smoothly, the post box should be relocated within 12-16 weeks. If the scans and the H&S checks come back clear then the box will be relocated to outside 109 - 111 The Street,KT22 9RD. The engineering team fully intend to carry out the relocation within the same day to ensure minimal disruption to customers posting their mail. However, if unforeseen circumstances arose, they would look at re-arranging the works ASAP.  Furthermore, there is a sufficient coverage of post boxes in the vicinity and so installing a further box would not be practical." If you wish to contact Royal Mail and air your views phone 03457 740 740 Monday to Friday 8am-6pm, Saturday 8am-1pm, or Sunday 9am to 2pm or email customer.services.team@royalmail.com

Countryside Car Park Charges

The County Council Cabinet decided last year to follow the National Trust in charging for rural car parks. This is said to help fund the Counryside Estates including Norbury Park. So charges are now in place to park at both the Young Street and Bocketts Farm Car Parks. However if you feel strongly against this, you can join an online petition on the Surrey Country Council website and air your views. https://petitions.surreycc.gov.uk/Charges/  This coupled with the increase from 60p to £1 for public car parks has led us to consider the impact that may have on Fetcham being Leatherhead's closest neighbour. Therefore we would like to monitor if this has any impact on residential road parking in Fetcham, so should any residents notice any additional street parking issues thought to be a result of this, please report it to us.  Email us at  info@fetchamresidents.co.uk

Transform Leatherhead

Transform Leatherhead continues to forge forward with outline planning being sought for Claire & James House on the riverside. Short term works to the Swan Centre have also been approved for improvements to the carpark access, replacement lifts and refurbished toilets, new retail units and further viability studies to evaluate further investment and improvements. To get in touch with Transform Leatherhead or to receive regular email updates please email transform.leatherhead@molevalley.go.uk 
Police
There are only 2 Neighbourhood officers (NSO’s) in Mole Valley, one based at Leatherhead and one at Dorking. In Fetcham we are fortunate to have a very low crime rate, but have suffered from a variety of mindless petty crimes and vandalism this year thought to be increased by the lack of officers on the ground. So please report it! We do still receive regular updates from the police on crimes occurring in the area and key updates are sent to our members via their email updates. General information is also posted on our social media feeds and notice boards and can be found on the following link https://www.surrey.police.uk/news/
If you believe you have been a victim of a crime or scam, contact Surrey Police on 101. Alternatively the independent charity Crimestoppers can also be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111

Remember
There is a councillor surgery in the Fetcham reading rooms on the first Saturday each month, 10am to noon.
