Brookwood/Pirbright Tunnel Petition Update and Executive

Many of you may have signed the SCC petition that a Pirbright resident created a couple of months ago. This is a petition I support and have signed.

Today I have received notification that it has reached the threshold to be formally presented and debated at the Guildford Local Committee in June.

This meeting will be the 13th June, starting at 19:00. Unfortunately, I am unable to attend as I will be at the Finance Task Group in Woking at that time. It’s unlikely I would have been able to speak anyway, however I will have a chat with the Guildford Borough Council Pirbright Councillor, Cllr Gordon Jackson who I know well and make my representations to him. I expect him to attend anyway. I hope this meeting will yield a positive response to the problem of the lights at the tunnel.

After the recent elections, I have now joined the Executive at WBC and have become the portfolio holder for Promoting the Local Economy, HG Wells Conference and Events Centre and Information Communication Technology. A nice little promotion which will give me something new to get my teeth into.
