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.

Proposed waste facilities in Martyrs Lane - Have your say by 7-Feb-18

Surrey County Council are asking for views on the draft plan which includes potential sites and policies which will inform how SCC will make decisions on new waste management facilities between 2018 and 2033. This consultation is the main opportunity for you to influence the contents of the Plan before it is submitted to the Secretary of State for independent examination.

A site in Martyrs Lane has been included in the shortlist. The former landfill site is adjacent to the current Community Recycling Centre is and forms part of the land that is being proposed for inclusion in the Woking BC Site Allocations Development Plan Document that was consulted on in 2017.

  • An overview of the consultation and the need to address waste plans in surrey can be found here.

  • There is a comprehensive set of documentation that provides a complete background to the reason to include the Martyrs Lane site at this link.

  • The two key documents and the link to the survey can be found here.
The consultation closes on 7th February 2018.

Have your say on police funding in Surrey

Surrey’s Police and Crime Commissioner David Munro wants to hear residents’ views on a proposed £12 a year rise for a Band D property in the policing element of the council tax that they will pay for the next financial year.

He is asking the public to fill in a short online survey on whether or not they would support the increase which would help Surrey Police protect frontline policing over the next year and create a more sustainable service in the years to come.

This consultation will close at midnight on Sunday 14th January 2018. If you want to read more about the PCC’s proposal and the reasons for it – please visit: to find out more here.
