Covid-19 (Coronavirus) Update from Crispin

In order to keep constituents up to date I have set out information on the key issues raised and the ones most frequently brought up by constituents. I hope you will find the answer to any enquiry here, then this follows my earlier round-up of local places where you can obtain information and support.

Coronavirus - Local Authority Advice and Help Services

As the coronavirus situation evolves, please be assured that both Reigate and Banstead Borough Council and Surrey County Council are organising themselves to deal with this emergency and do all they can to support the local community.

RIS2 - HOOLEY INTERCHANGE

It was with great disappointment that I recently received a letter from Baroness Vere of Norbiton, Transport Minister for Roads Buses and Places, advising me that the proposed M23/A23 Hooley Interchange Project (known as project Dj) had not been selected as one of the road infrastructure projects that were given the go ahead in the Government’s Road Investment Strategy 2 (RIS2) which covers the period from 2020-2025.

REIGATE POST OFFICE UPDATE

It is very unfortunate that the Reigate Post office, situated in Martins, has been forced to close its doors earlier than anticipated due to lease issues with the landlord.

FUNDING FOR MORE BUS SERVICES IN SURREY

As part of the Government's £30m package of funding, Surrey has been fortunate to be given the opportunity to receive £671,945 of additional funding for 2020/21 to support local bus services.
