Drivers Beware: Stoke Road Now 30MPH From Chelsea Ground to Cobham

The Highway Code states that, unless signs indicate otherwise, a 30 mph speed limit applies in built-up areas. However, "built-up area" is defined not by the presence of houses, but by the presence of street lights. This is being exploited by local authorities whp are increasingly cutting the speed limit on lit rural roads adjoining built-up areas to 30 mph, by the simple expedient of removing the previous 40 mph or NSL repeater signs. This can be extremely confusing to drivers, who do not expect to encounter 30 limits on rural roads. It is not reasonable that drivers should have to count street lights to work out what the speed limit is. On non built-up roads with 30 limits, repeater signs should be mandatory.


Major Development at Three Meadows Farm  (Wisley Airfield)
Please Consider Objecting - Now Urgent Before March 31st

An application has been made for a massive development of over 2000 homes on this Green Belt site in Wisley adjoining the rural village of Ockham. This would have a very significant effect on the Cobham and Downside area. We urge you to read the following information about the application and to consider objecting to the development.  The closing date for comments is 31st March 2015.

Take a look at Cobham Green Belt and at Wisley Action Group to learn more about the proposals and the reasons you might be concerned and to find out how to submit your comments. 

Cobham Green Belt is an initiative by the CDRA, CCHT and Cobham Chamber of Commerce to jointly address threats to our Green Belt.

Downside Sports & Family Day, 2014 Well the Weather really did not give the day much of a chance this year, after all the planning and behind the scenes work, the one thing you have no control with is the weather itself. The rain put pay to lots of family's coming to what is the best free day of sport and fun for all, They did get a few races in, but the heavy down pours made life hard for Dan and the rest of the volunteers. Many thanks for all those who braved the elements to turn up and a big thank you to the team for all the hard work.

Nuisance Telephone Calls & Scams (070,075,076 numbers)

Most of us have received a nuisance call or message at some time.
Maybe it was that time you rushed to the phone only to find it was a
call centre trying to sell you something you didn't’ want or need.
Or it could have been a company offering compensation for an injury
you haven’t got and most of us are fed up with PPI being rammed at
from everywhere. Nuisance calls and messages come in a variety of
different shapes & sizes and can be inconvenient plus annoying.
But for more vulnerable consumers they can also cause considerable
distress and anxiety. If you are fed up with receiving these calls
and messages there is something you can do about it. To stop unwanted
sales and marketing calls, register your phone number, either landline
or mobile with the Telephone Preference Service. It’s free and takes
28 days for a ban to come into effect. You can register online at
www.tpsonline.org.uk or call them on0845 700 707. Or you can talk to
your provider about services to block unwanted calls. For example,
BT offers a number of services to help stop unwanted calls,
including ‘Privacy at Home’, ‘Choose to Refuse’ and ‘Anonymous Call
Rejection’. Other providers offer similar services.

Each year millions of people fall victims to scams which can take many
forms but most have several things in common. The call might come from
a number you do not recognize, offers you something for nothing, asks
for you to send money up-front or asks for your bank details or other
personal information. The best advice is to end the call. On particular
scam to beware, victims receive a missed call from a number beginning
070, 075 or 076. These numbers are used as they appear to be calls from
a mobile phone number. However, when the victim tries to call the number
back, the call is immediately dropped or an engaged tone is played and
the victim is charged 50p for making the call. If you receive a miss
call from a number beginning 070,075 or 076 that you do not recognize,
do not call it back. Instead, make a note of the number and complain to
the premium rate regulator, PhonepayPlus (tel:0800 500 212). If you think
you have been the victim of a scam, contact Action Fraud the UK’s national
fraud reporting centre on 0300 123 2040
