About Horsell Residents' Association

Horsell Residents' Association was formed in 1965 as a non-political group open to all adult residents of Horsell. It exists as "the independent voice of Horsell" to:

1. promote, uphold and protect the interests of residents in matters that affect Horsell and its environs.

2. bring those matters to the notice of relevant bodies and accordingly keep its members informed.

3. support and promote social and benevolent activities for the general benefit of Horsell residents

Horsell Residents' Association upholds these aims activities including: publishing the quarterly magazine - The Resident - delivered by volunteers to all households; organising a Horsell Village Show and also through support of Horsell' community action team the Second Thursday Club.

Surrey County Council - Have Your Say on Next Year's Police Funding

Surrey County Council - Consultation on Police Funding

Would you be prepared to pay an extra £2 a month in council tax for an additional 100 police officers in Surrey?

The county’s Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) David Munro wants to hear residents’ views on a proposed £24 a year increase for a Band D property in the policing element of the council tax that they will pay for the next financial year.

One of the PCC’s key responsibilities is to set the overall budget for Surrey Police including determining the level of council tax raised for policing in the county known as the precept.

The Commissioner is inviting the public to fill in a short online survey on whether or not they would support the suggested rise which would mean doubling the number of officers in our dedicated neighbourhood teams across the county.

Find out more of the background.

How to report fly-tipping & your responsibilities for waste disposal

Reporting fly-tipping

Fly tipping is a continuing issue on some roads in Horsell and on the edges of the village on Horsell Common. This week a fridge freezer was dumped on South Road actually on the highway. Please find details below on how to report fly tipping so that it is removed.

1. If a road is blocked and is impassable, report fly-tipping on the highway to Surrey County Council.

2. If waste is tipped in other areas in Horsell, report fly-tipping to Woking Borough Council.

Householder responsibilities for waste disposal

Surrey County Council have issued a reminder of householder responsibilities when having waste removed. Your waste is your responsibility - make sure your builder won’t fly-tip it. Find out more about what you can do to stamp out fly-tipping in Surrey - Visit bit.ly/2cJpi3F
