Work has started on the Limpsfield Way – with new Rest & Play area

Excited to let you know that work has now started on the Limpsfield Way, starting with the new “Rest and Play” area located in the the lovely green clearing south of the New Road car park.

The contractor (Conservation & Access) has created and installed some fabulous natural wood play equipment for children, along with three benches and a picnic table for rest and refreshment.

We will soon be installing an easy access path from the car park, which will be suitable for wheelchairs and buggies. We are hoping that the Limpsfield Way – a 4.5 mile circular walk from Limpsfield to Limpsfield Chart – will be completed by July.

The route will be waymaked and have a number of information boards with local historical facts.

We are also planning a ‘there and back’ cycle route from Limpsfield Village to Limpsfield Chart.

We will also be setting up web pages dedicated to the walk and cycle route with maps and more information. Please contact Sophie at Limpsfield Parish Council, on clerk@limspfield.org if you have any comments or would like more information.In the meantime, enjoy the new natural play area!

The Limpsfield Way and Cycle Route is funded by Surrey County Council’s #YourFundSurrey scheme.

We’d like your thoughts about CCTV in Oxted & Limpsfield

Oxted Parish Council and Limpsfield Parish Council, together with Tandridge District council, The Oxted Business Improvement District and The Trustees of Master Park are considering installing a CCTV system.  

The CCTV would act as a key tool in detecting and preventing crime, disorder and antisocial behaviour.  

The cameras would not be monitored on a 24-hour basis but the recordings from the cameras could be viewed following any instances of crime, disorder or antisocial behaviour.  

Cameras will cover Station Road East (part of which is in Limpsfield Parish) and Station Road West, Master Park and Hurst Green Shops.  

The CCTV system would be jointly funded with Oxted Parish Council providing a significant share of the funding from the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) that it receives.

Oxted Parish Council and Limpsfield Parish Council are interested in your views on the provision of such a CCTV system and would appreciate you completing this questionnaire.  

The questionnaire should only take a few minutes to complete and will run until 7th January 2022.

Nominate your favourite Limpsfield assets

Have you got a favourite building or structure in Limpsfield that is not already listed or protected?

A new project is underway to identify assets across Surrey that are valued by the community and play a key role in reinforcing a sense of local character and distinctiveness.

Over the next year, Surrey County Council will be producing an updated local heritage asset list for the district. 

Limpsfield Parish Council’s Planning Committee will also be reviewing local buildings and structures to identify those we think should be on the list.

Assets on local heritage lists, also known as local listing, are not protected in the same way as listed buildings, but can be afforded protection through the planning system as ‘non-designated heritage assets’.

What can be on the list?

  • building
  • monument
  • site
  • place
  • area
  • landscape

…in fact pretty much anything that has heritage significance, but is not recognised by another planning designation (e.g. listed building or in a conservation area).

They should give an insight into the history of communities and places and provides us with a physical link to our past.

How to nominate

The nomination process opens on 5 October and closes at 5pm on 16 November. You can nominate using the online form – click on the link below.

To find out more, including the criteria being used and how to submit a nomination, please visit Surrey County Council’s Local heritage list project.

To find out the selection criteria, please click HERE or download the document below.

To see buildings that are either on the current Buildings of Character (2013) list or are Listed Buildings, please see the documents for download below.
