Members of ACV Working Group & the Forum:
Caroline Cardew-Smith moved to Ashtead in 2003. My main concern is with the environment, climate change, protecting nature and ‘future proofing’ any development. I am secretary of local group Transition Ashtead.
Councillor Mary Cooper
Andy Ellis, Chairman of Ashtead Community Vision (ACV). I have lived in Ashtead for nearly thirty years and I came to Surrey to work on a project some of you probably opposed at the time, the M25. I am retired now. Why did I start ACV? It was an article in Ashtead Village News which got me started. The article pointed out that the government has given us, the community, the ability to influence future development more than before through the Localism Act. The Act was passed in late 2011 and is all about devolving power away from the centre. An idea most people support.
Councillor Paula Hancock
Councillor Chris Hunt
Di Stirling, secretary of the Forum
Alex Tombs, ACV Treasurer
Tony Tuley, Chairman of the Forum. I moved to Ashtead in 1979 from Morden for cheaper housing and more space. A keen walker, I like the fact that I can walk out of Ashtead onto Green Belt land in both directions but still have the convenience of easy access to all forms of transport.
FORUM MEMBERS as at 9th February 2013:
Jim Malynn, chairman of Ashtead Residents Association
The Forum, 1st meeting 9th Feb 2013
