People who live, work, study or travel around Farnham will have their first chance next week to ask questions about a programme to cut congestion and improve air quality in and around the town.

The Farnham Infrastructure Programme's Local Liaison Forum is holding a Zoom webinar on Wednesday 5 August at 6pm. People who are interested in the programme can watch and submit questions. The webinar will be jointly chaired by local councillors representing Surrey County Council, Waverley Borough Council and Farnham Town Council.

The programme is made up of four proposed projects which together would improve how people live and travel in and around Farnham:

  • Short and medium-term improvements: this includes considering lowering speed limits in the town centre and rerouting HGVs.
  • Town centre infrastructure: this will include considering pedestrianisation, encouraging walking and cycling, reducing through traffic and supporting better connections between different parts of the town centre.
  • A31 Hickley's Corner: looking at ways to reduce congestion and queuing, preventing the need for vehicles to divert through the town, greatly improving the connections in Farnham between north and south of the A31 and improving safety for all road users.
  • A325 Wrecclesham Relief Road: investigating solutions to the high traffic levels through Wrecclesham village, including improving road safety and preventing HGVs striking the railway bridge.

There will be a public consultation later this year to shape a vision statement for the programme.

To take part in the forum's webinar, visit the Farnham Town Council website to register your details or email customer.services@farnham.gov.uk.
