Residents Associations of Epsom and Ewell

Local people working together for our local community

What do we do?

Put simply, we work with residents to try to keep our area a pleasant place to live.

  • We look at planning applications and comment where required.
  • We liaise with the police to help to keep the locality safe and free from crime
  • If there is a broken street name sign, or a street light is not working, or the grass on the verges needs cutting, we tell the appropriate people.
  • We have road representatives who keep in touch with residents and report your concerns.
  • We keep our members informed through our regular newsletters.
  • We are available to hear your views and to act on them.

Working with the Council

  • Residents Association Councillors have been in control of the Borough Council for the last 75 years.
  • We are not connected with a national political party (i.e. not Conservative, or Labour, or Liberal Democrat, or UKIP) and we are proud of it.
  • Our councillors are local people making local decisions about local issues.

What’s important to us?

  • Keeping the area pleasant to live in – and our approach has worked for many years.
  • Keeping in touch with residents, so that you can affect our actions.
  • Taking a non-political approach to local issues.
  • We can’t promise you will always get the results you want.  Some issues (such as transport, roads and schools) are managed by the County Council or by central government – but we can lobby and speak on your behalf.
