Shepperton Studios expansion:
Following the presentations for local residents which we attended and hopefully many of you also managed to visit, to find out more about their plans.
Some residents contacted us about their concerns of yet another increase in traffic for the Charlton Road, which is of course the only main road in our village !
We subsequently requested a meeting with the Development Team working on behalf of the Studios. This took place on 16 August, five committee members attended (Alison Dodsworth, Gill Cowan, Jo O’Connor, Arzu Pearce and Shivali Mathur). The meeting went well and they were very receptive to our concerns. They have been conducting Traffic Surveys and working with Surrey CC on the results of their survey.
They have already submitted their plans to Spelthorne BC, but have stated they will make some adjustments to include our requests.
- The installation of a pedestrian crossing – exact location to be confirmed
- Significant improvements to the roundabout at the junction of Charlton Road, Spelthorne Lane and the Ashford Road.
- Major road improvements at the junction of Charlton Lane and New Road including
Installation of Traffic Lights
- Resolution of the Flooding issue at the South end of Charlton Road
- A rigorous application of a Transport Plan that ensures the traffic avoids peak times
around 7:30am-9:30am and 3:00pm-5pm.
- Monitoring of the Air Quality to ensure any traffic mitigation plans are working and not significantly contributing to reduction in our Air Quality.
We have written to:
Surrey County Council, Shepperton Studios, Spelthorne Borough Council, Turley (Studios Development Team), Kwasi Kwarteng MP and our local Councillors, Richard Walsh, Dick Smith Ainsley, Maureen Attewell and Mary Madams

Once the planning application is “live” we would ask each resident to reply or post a comment on the application in line with our requests. We will let you know when it is available on the Spelthorne website. The more residents that comment the stronger our case will be.
Of course we know we will not be successful on every request, but we have made it clear the minimum is the Pedestrian crossing. We really hope we achieve at least one more traffic calming measure, which with the Camera’s could have a significant impact on slowing the traffic along the Charlton Road.
We will keep everyone informed of our progress.
