Tandridge district to move to Tier 2 (High) from 2 December

From Wednesday 2 December the Tandridge district, along with the rest of Surrey, will move from the current national restrictions into Tier 2 (High) of the government’s three tier system for England.

Under the Local Covid Alert Level system, Tier 2 is for areas with a higher rate of infections and means some additional restrictions will be necessary to slow the spread of the virus. This aims to reduce household to household transmission by preventing mixing between households or support bubbles indoors. The rule of six will apply in outdoor spaces, including private gardens.

Tier 2 restrictions mean:

  • You can’t socialise with people you don’t live with, or who aren’t in your support bubble, in any indoor setting.
  • You must not socialise in a group of more than six people outside (rule of six), including private gardens, beaches or parks.
  • Businesses and venues can continue to operate, in a Covid-secure manner, other than those required to close by law.
  • Pubs and bars must close, unless operating as restaurants.
  • Hospitality venues can only serve alcohol with substantial meals. Certain businesses are required to ensure customers only consume food and drink while seated, last orders must be taken by 10pm and they must close between 11pm and 5am.
  • Businesses and venues selling food for consumption off their premises can continue to do so after 11pm, as long as this is through a delivery service, click and collect or drive-thru.
  • Schools, universities and places of worship remain open.
  • Weddings and funerals can go ahead, with restrictions on the number of attendees.
  • Exercise classes and organised sport can continue to take place outdoors and will only be permitted indoors if it’s possible for people to avoid mixing with people they do not live with or share a support bubble with, or for youth or disability sport.
  • You can continue to travel to venues or amenities that are open but should aim to reduce the number of journeys you make where possible.
  • If you live in a tier 2 area, you must continue to follow tier 2 rules when you travel to a tier 1 area. Avoid travel to or overnight stays in tier 3 areas other than where necessary, such as for work, education, youth services, to receive medical treatment, or because of caring responsibilities. You can travel through a tier 3 area as a part of a longer journey.

This is in addition to national restrictions already in place, which include:

  • Wearing face coverings in places you’re required to.
  • Observing social distancing.
  • Working from home when possible. If you can’t work from home you should walk or cycle if you can, avoiding using public transport at busy times.

 A message from the Tandridge District Council Group Leaders:

Councillor Tony Elias, Leader of the Council and Conservative Group, Councillor Catherine Sayer, Leader of the Independents and OLRG Alliance, Councillor Chris Botten, Leader of the Liberal Democrats, Councillor Martin Allen, Leader of the Independent Group

“We’re extremely grateful for everything residents have done since March to help keep the number of cases in our district as low as possible. We know how difficult this time has been for many of our residents. 

It’s so important we all continue to follow the government guidelines and do everything we can to reduce the spread of the virus in our district.

Please do continue supporting your local businesses, safely of course, as they’ve really relied on the loyalty and support of residents during the pandemic.

Thank you all for your understanding and patience. Our website contains the most up to date help and support for residents and businesses. If we all pull together and follow the guidance, we’ll hopefully be able to reduce the spread of the infection, keep ourselves and our loved ones safe and get back to doing the things we enjoy.”

Millions awarded to keep homes warm and lower energy bills

The government has made £6.2 million available to help Surrey households save money on energy bills. The funding for Green Jump Surrey will provide eligible households up to £15,000 to improve the energy efficiency of their homes, helping reduce our collective carbon footprint.

In addition to the government’s grant, Surrey County Council is contributing £750,000 to the Green Jump Surrey project as top-up funding to cover the full cost of works.

Eligible owner occupied households can use the funding to install energy efficiency improvements including loft, solid wall, cavity wall and park home insulation, to keep their home warm. Air source heat pumps and solar hot water systems can also be funded in addition to insulation works, to further help save on energy bills and reduce carbon emission.

Private and social housing landlords can receive up to £5,000 to cover two thirds of the cost of installing solid wall insulation.

If you are living in a hard-to-heat home and either in receipt of a means tested benefit or have a total gross annual household income of less than £30,000, you could be eligible for funding.

Funding is time limited, so contact Action Surrey on 0800 783 2503 or at www.actionsurrey.org/enquiries as soon as possible.

Grants will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis and will be monitored by Action Surrey, which is delivering the project on behalf of Tandridge District Council.

Action Surrey is an impartial energy advice centre set up by local councils across Surrey, to help residents save money on their energy bills and keep warm in their homes. Action Surrey has a network of trusted installers to deliver the installations. Action Surrey is managed by ThamesWey Sustainable Communities, a company wholly owned by Woking Borough Council.

Please note: we have re-issued this news item to reflect the increase in the amount of funding available for eligible households from £10,000 to £15,000.

Why we are consulting

  2. Beauclerc Infant School – introduction of a sibling link with Chennestone Primary School
  3. Horley Infant School – introduction of a reciprocal sibling link with Yattendon School
  4. Onslow Infant School – reduction in published admission number for Reception from 90 to 60 

How can I respond to the consultation? 

The consultation on the admission arrangements for community and voluntary controlled schools and the proposed changes will run until Tuesday 1 December 2020. If you would like to take part please complete an online response form at www.surreysays.co.uk/csf/copy-of-copy-of-consultation-on-proposed-changes-t/ (www.surreysays.co.uk).Alternatively, if you would prefer to respond on a paper form, please telephone the Surrey Schools and Childcare Service on 0300 200 1004 to request a copy.

What happens next? 

After the closing date, responses will be collated and presented to the County Council's decision-making Cabinet on 26 January 2021. It will decide whether to proceed with the proposed changes as well as determining the admission arrangements for all community and voluntary controlled schools for which no changes are proposed. Cabinet’s decision will then need to be ratified by the full County Council on 9 February 2021.
