Windlesham Village Rejuvenation Project UPDATE
Published: 04 February 2020
Following a public meeting held in September, residents were
given the opportunity to respond to two short questionnaires. The first asked
what was currently liked and disliked about the village centre and future
aspirations for the village centre. The second questionnaire asked for opinions
about speed reduction in 3 specific village locations.
The results of these surveys can be found here:

At the Parish
meeting on Tuesday 28th January, Cllr Goodman gave the following
update on the project.
The Parish have
supported improvements to traffic in Windlesham and have provided initial funds
for this purpose. The approach has been to decide an overall scheme and then
break this down into stages.
leading to the start of the village
Data from the WNP
was used together with suggestions by the public during the consultation in
September. There was no universal suggestion of what would resolve the traffic
issues and was affordable.
A walk around the
village with Parish Councillors and officers took place in December. This
confirmed that there is no easy solution to the challenges faced.
have been reviewing the data and their own experiences and are considering
potential ideas to put to the public.
What is being
proposed is we action as soon as possible the resurfacing of Chertsey Road and
particularly the centre with an anti-skid surface and at the same time
implement two uncontrolled, informal crossings and a reduction in speed to 20
MPH. This will help to control speeds but will not be the whole answer.
The task group
with highway officers will meet in February and agree suggestions to put to
residents at a formal consultation.
If residents have
any further ideas in advance of the task group meeting could you please let the
Parish office know and we can see if these can be included in the consultation.
