Refurbishment of waiting area Our Railway Task Group have created a vision for new loos which would cater for everyone and be accessible 24/7. See the drawings for further details of what is proposed. Unfortunately the railways operate on a shoe-string and if we want this we have to raise funds for it. There is a £200k price-tag which includes a complete overhaul of this part of our historic station and the installation of automatic (wheelchair-friendly) doors to the ticket-hall. The waiting-room area will be enlarged and available for village display material.
Following an unsuccessful bid for a grant from the Surrey County Council “Your Fund Surrey” community improvements initiative, it seems that our voice has been heard after all: a recently signed “planning gain”/s.106 agreement requires a developer, should certain conditions be fulfilled, to pay £200,000 towards improvements to loo and waiting room facilities at Horsley Station. So watch this space!
