Farnham Road Rail Bridge Funding For Bridge Strengthening Colin Kemp – “This bridge carries A31 traffic into Guildford town centre so we’re pleased that Network Rail – the bridge’s owner – is finally looking to go ahead with this scheme.

Then we can consider how to contribute towards the cost of doing the work, given the enormous financial pressures we face from rising needs across social care services.’ BBC Surrey
Surrey Heartlands Sustainability And Transformation Partnership Helyn Clack – “This is about bringing together health and social care in our county and giving people better, more efficient services that provide greater access at times that suit them.

Progress has been so fast that all those involved locally and nationally have signed a pledge to make devolution a reality and as a result funding has been earmarked for this.”

Funding and demand pressures mean we have to save more than £100m this financial year alone just to balance the budget – and that’s on top of the £450m savings we’ve made since 2010. Tough decisions need to be made so we can provide residents with the support they need and rely upon.”
