As part of our ongoing Neighbourhood Plan endeavours to create better walking and cycling routes for the area, we have put in a bid for a way-marked family friendly walking route and separate ‘there and back’ cycle route from Limpsfield Chart to Limpsfield Village.
There are three road closures coming up that will affect Limpsfield residents:
- Red Lane – will be closed for roadworks – Monday 29 Nov until 3 Dec for connection works by UK Power Networks. Please use alternative routes.
- A25 West Hill / East Hill (from Morrisons Traffic Lights to the Esso Garage) will be closed at night for surface dressing prior to resurfacing from Wednesday December 8th for 3 nights, 8pm – 6am
- Moorhouse Road, Limpsfield Chart (from Westerham Road to Kent Hatch Road) closed for pre-patching work. Monday 13 December for 3 days (daytime)
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.

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?
…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

As you know, we’ve been working on a submission to Your Fund Surrey, a huge local fund set up by Surrey County Council to enable local communities and organisations to fund some exciting community-based projects.
We have now submitted our formal funding application for the Limpsfield Way walk and community cycle route, and over the next 3 weeks we need as much community support as possible and are asking you for your input to ensure success of our bid. To register your support, please review the bid and leave comments on our dedicated entry on the Your Fund Surrey site here: https://yourfundsurreyproposals.commonplace.is/proposals/the-limpsfield-way
Do you know about trees, conservation and land management? Or know someone who does? The National Trust is looking for an experienced Area Ranger to join their team and help look after our wonderful Limpsfield Common.
The Department of Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) wants to hear views and experiences of consumers’ broadband connectivity in rural and remote areas of the UK. There is currently an online survey which forms part of a consultation about the issue.
Given much of the Limpsfield parish area is rural and there are certainly broadband and mobile signal issues in the rural areas, Limpsfield Chart etc, it would be useful if you could take the online survey using the link below (of course you need to be able to get onto the internet to do this… hmmm…could be a flaw 😉 )
Deadline is 11:45pm on 11 June 2021
