- We support medium-sized developments that complement existing communities, not huge dormitory towns on the outskirts of Guildford
- We want to see new homes built, but ones that are affordable for our own children
- Traffic overload will spoil the character of Merrow as well as slow down journeys. We will resist any plan that increases traffic down residential roads, and we will instal pollution monitors along main throughfares.
- We will clean up the air with a ‘green wall’ of kerbside hedging to protect us from traffic fumes
- Create even better green spaces for walking, sports and leisure and brighten up the neighbourhood with more shared spaces, dog bins and benches
- More activities and facilities for young people
- Create safe crossing points in Epsom Road for school children
- Fix our roads – potholes, standing water and congestion
