Renewed Gating Inquiry
- Renewed Gating Inquiry
- In response to requests from residents, WERC has reopened an inquiry into the issue of gating the Estate. The Committee began by studying in detail the results of the gating review in 2005. Mel Few, a former Chairman of WRA and now a Councillor and Cabinet member in Surrey County Council, was invited by the Committee to present on September 18, 2015, an in- depth review of the investigations, studies and surveys undertaken in 2005. The Committee has subsequently had helpful discussions with a firm specialising in automatic gate installations as it is vital to utilise all technological advances in considering a way forward for Wentworth with its 18 entrances.
On Wednesday, October 21st, members of the Committee are scheduled to meet with Jason Gosden, Senior Engineer for Surrey Highways, and Graham Cannon, Road Safety & Traffic Management for Surrey Police to discuss the implications of gating. Further meetings and discussions are planned for fire and medical Emergency services who had in 2005 indicated serious response problems with gated areas on the Wentworth Estate. After gathering this and any other indicated data, the Committee may seek an integrated approach and formal report from appropriate consultants identified by its appointed search committee.
