Horley Town Management Group
The Horley Town Management Group (HTMG) meets once a month to discuss and develop initiatives and actions to promote the town of Horley as a safe, progressive and positive community through partnerships with local business, government and community groups. The purpose of the group is to set the broad vision for the Town, taking into account the needs of all the Town's customers, residents, visitors, traders and businesses. This includes improving the appearance, amenities and accessibility of Horley and to seek funding for the initiatives.
A Business Plan and Action Plan are key priorities of the HTMG, and the meetings serve as a forum for the partners to enable them to look outwards and promote and market their Horley Town.
The HTMG partners include representatives from Reigate & Banstead Council, Horley Town Council, Surrey County Council, the Chamber of Commerce, residents’ associations, national retailers, Horley Guest Houses Association, groups representing disabled people (Access Group), large commercial employers, small commercial employers, estate agent or property interest, small retailers, East Horley retailers, Surrey Police, Youth Council, plus co-opted members, officers
and a secretary.
