Forum
Welcome to our new online forum.
Local Organisations with an involvement in Disability Issues are welcome
to attend any of the Spelthorne Physical, Sensory and Cognitive Disabilities Forum meetings and present a report to the Forum.

We Consult With Spelthorne Borough Council and Surrey County Council on local issues such as;
 Pedestrian Crossings
 Pedestrian/Cycle Shared pathways
 Disabled Access to buildings, shopping areas, countryside and leisure services

Tell Us about:
 pavements that are being obstructed either by badly parked vehicles or overhanging trees,
 crossing points that need dropped kerbs
 buildings or services that are not accessible
So that we can further improve access to facilities and services for all members of our community in Spelthorne.
