On Saturday, November 30th we had a dynamic two part workshop on building inclusive online community engagement in neighbourhoods hosted by Steven Clift in the Kingston Upon Thames Guildhall.

We brainstormed strategies for the Norbiton community in Kingston upon Thames as they launch their new Neighbours Forum with E-Democracy. We had a lively discussion which continued into the Druid’s Head afterwards.

Fuel Poverty: towards integrated approaches to health, energy, social justice and climate change
  • Do you work in the voluntary & community, housing, health, employment or energy sectors?
  • Do you want to address fuel poverty and help identify integrated approaches to energy, health, social justice and climate change?

If so, than this is the event for you!

We are relaunching our petition to fix the gap at Norbiton Station. Please go to Fix the gap to sign the online petition at change.org. Each signature goes directly to South West Trains so if we get a million something may change! We held a protest at Norbiton station on Monday 18th February. Some photographs of the event are here. One result of our activities has been reported by a user of the station – the train announcements have been changed on some services warning travellers to not only mind the gap but also to take great care stepping down off the train!

The launch of the Surrey Save Norbiton Outreach took place at the Community Shop, Madingley Green at 10am Thursday 13th June. The Mayor of RBK attended.Mayor at SurreySave Norbiton Outreach Launch

A combined effort by OneNorbiton, CREST and CRERA resulted in the rejection of the planning application for the development of the Duke’s Tavern site. Residents marched from the Cambridge Estate to the Guildhall and representatives spoke at the planning meeting.There was a public meeting in Queen Mary’s Hall, Cambridge Gardens on Tuesday 28th May to discuss the Planning Application for the Duke’s Tavern Site. After a presentation by the proposers of the application a lively discussion took place, with around 50 attendees all rejecting the plans for a student residence in the area. A report on the meeting can be seen here and a response from David Ryder-Mills. Please look at an article about this proposed development from the CRERA newsletter.

Unfortunately the Council Planning & Development Committee have accepted a revised bid to build student accommodation for almost 300 students on the site.

We are compiling sets of photos of Norbiton. Some of the photos will be included in a calendar we are producing which will have lots of local information and events. Please look at the sets we have created so far, let us know if you like any of the images and send any Norbiton related photos you have to [email protected]. The sets we have so far are CommunityConnected1, CommunityConnected2 and the images currently shown in the OneNorbiton Image page. There are also photos on the CREST webpage at this link. After a Twitter appeal we have more photos here and here.

We have come to the end of the pilot stage of our project, and the RBK report summarising it is at this link, and the OneNorbiton bottom up view is at this link.

Check out the Pride of Place day at Piper Hall (Pride of Place poster). View the Community Connected webpage here. This project is building a visual history of Norbiton and all residents can help with their memories, photos and memorabilia.
