The resurfacing work carried out at Mandeville Drive on 31st March has been left in an unsatisfactory state, with the new surface ending well short of the end of Mandeville Drive and the junction with Oaks Way and Saffron Way.

The junction itself is in a very poor condition and needs resurfacing.

In addition, repeated requests for the footways, also in a very poor state, to be resurfaced, have been ignored.

Surbiton 20mph speed limit consultation – sign up below

In 2014, Surbiton Liberal Democrats started the campaign for a 20mph limit on all streets in Surbiton. Lots of you agreed with us and we now have some good news.

The Liberal Democrat Councillors in Surbiton have won a major victory towards securing safer streets for Surbiton residents. There will now be a consultation on 20mph in all residential roads in Surbiton Neighbourhood.

Conservatives used constitutional powers to stop the agreed 20mph speed limit in Surbiton town centre over a year ago. But local Lib Dems did not give up and now we have a Surbiton wide consultation.

Broadoaks is a private access road behind Tolworth Broadway, and local residents are not happy with the state it is in.

Broadoaks has been neglected by the land owners for a long time and has become a serious health and safety issue for the local residents, passers-by and especially children.

People who live in Broadoaks claim fly-tipping is so bad, they can’t park and are finding the dumped waste a health hazard.

Tories let you down again

This afternoon, regrettably, Boris Johnson has not used his powers to help residents of Tolworth and has rubber stamped the decision by Kingston's Conservatives for the overdevelopment of the Tolworth Tower site.

He has chosen to ignore a petition collected in just 10 days by Kingston Liberal Democrats and signed by over 1000 local residents. This afternoon at a closed meeting, the Mayor of London disregarded the wishes of the vast majority of local people and upheld the bad decision taken by Tory Councillors.

Tom Davies, Lib Dem Councillor for Tolworth says:

"I'm dismayed at this decision; Boris Johnson clearly does not understand Tolworth. I was gobsmacked when the Conservatives on the Development Control Committee agreed to permit this massive overdevelopment."
