 to enhance the appearance of Norbiton and preserve our existing green spaces and to develop a Hogs Mill riverside walk.
3. Transport
 To create better transport links e.g. to enlarge the K bus route to include the CRE to help our elderly get easier access to Kingston Hospital. Also to promote health by encourage safe walking, cycling and use of public transport and seek ways to avoid traffic congestion e.g. explore the feasibility of developing a car free estate.

4. Wellbeing

To run regular Post Code parties to improve mutual community contact and engagement. To manage the nuisance caused by local street drinkers and focus on the Homeless. To set up and support a local youth club. To develop a Community hub that facilitates joint work between public services such as Housing, Social Services and the NHS. And to run an Internet café to support the Community needs for using the Internet and provide a common meeting ground where Charities and others can collaborate.

To enhance the character, quality and distinctiveness of key 
local centres including supporting viable local shopping for residents and visitors to enjoy and so that our local businesses benefit. To continue to run our local Credit Union loan facility and be a Food Bank

 To scrutinise local public money spend and ensure it is used in the most effective and economic way and in the best interests of those who live, work and study in Norbiton.
