There is huge opposition in the neighbourhood (we already have 130 signatures) but given wider concerns re: the threat to green spaces in Horley, we would like this case to receive more exposure.

A 'thank you' message: "I would like to thank whoever cleared the branches from the Povey cross roundabout. Well done. It looks so much better.  I wish everyone was as efficient as you. Thank you so much, regards Willo Heesom, Norwood Hill."

Willo had noticed that the Povey Cross roundabout had branches scattered over the tulips and it looked a mess. He emailed Cllr. David Powell and also the Mayor of Reigate and Banstead Borough Council. They quickly responded and the branches were cleared up.

Just shows to get things done it's good to contact our local councillors. They are there to help. You can see who to contact on our 'Who Does What' page.
