Decisions made at the most recent meeting of the Surrey Heath Borough Council Executive on 15 June 2021 included:
Extension of the Parking Subsidy Season Ticket
A low cost parking season ticket is available for lower paid workers across the borough. The Executive agreed to extend this provision for the next 12 months (to be reviewed again on 30 June 2022).
The eligibility criteria has been updated to reflect the increase to the National Living Wage since June 2020.
Drainage Works programme for 2021/22 and feedback on works undertaken in 2020/21
The Executive approved a proposed schedule of drainage works for the next 12 months. This included works to be carried out in Chobham to improve flood drainage.
Community Infrastructure Levy monitoring report
A review was undertaken of the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) funding.
The CIL Regulations required the Council, as the collecting authority, to pay money over to the parishes, decide how to use the fund, and to publish details of its CIL income and expenditure. The Council had received a total of £726,106.10 for the reporting period between 1 October 2020 and 31 March 2021.
During this reporting period the national lockdown had taken place due to Covid 19, with parts of the building industry temporarily shut down. As a consequence, this had impacted on the amount of CIL receipts collected by the Council.
Closure Order for St Peter's Churchyard, Frimley
The Parochial Church Council of the Parish of Frimley had written to ask the Council if it had any objection to the closure of the burial ground at St Peter’s Churchyard as there is no space for new graves.
It was decided that subject to further clarification on the burial of ashes in the Churchyard, the Council has no objection to the closure of the burial ground.
The Council had assisted with graveyard maintenance costs at St Peter’s Church through a discretionary grant and it was agreed to make no change to this arrangement.
The Square shopping centre refurbishments, Camberley
The Executive considered proposals for the completion of the refurbishment of The Square shopping centre in Cambridge Square (outside House of Fraser), and also Obelisk Way (by Boots) and Beitigheim Way (near New Look).
It was decided that a procurement process would start to source a contractor to undertake the design and build of the refurbishments.
