Toilets in Godstone
A contractor is being appointed to refurbish the toilets on Godstone Green. The toilets have been closed for some time due to persistent issues with legionella bacteria. The Council is about to award a contract to strip out the old toilets and install a completely new facility. The exterior of the toilet building, which is in Godstone Conservation Area, will be kept the same while the brand new toilets are installed inside. The Council is aiming for work to start in mid-April and it is expected to take around four weeks to complete.

SCC, in conjunction with Surrey Police & National Highways, is embarking on a ‘Vision Zero’ Strategy for there to be zero fatalities or serious injuries on Surrey's roads by 2050. To work toward this 2050 vision, SCC have set a new target to reduce fatal and serious road casualties by 50% by 2035. Key highlights of the strategy include introducing 20 mph speed limits in built-up areas, road safety relating to schools and education, as well as local cycling and walking infrastructure plans. The 8.4km route of the A25 between Dorking and Reigate will also be improved at junctions with speed management measures and safer roadsides.
To make it easier for community groups to find out about funding, consultations, Surrey County Council are developing some “asset networks”. Community groups, charities, social enterprises, faith organisations etc can sign up in order to be kept in the loop about grant opportunities, consultations, opportunities to co-design etc and hope this will make it easier to collaborate with the community sector.
