New bid to develop Surbiton filter beds
There's a fresh attempt to build a marina and homes on the Surbiton Filter beds.
A planning application was submitted last October but objections were made by official transport and sports bodies in January.
The area has been re-named the Sanctuary according to the Surbiton People website which has also produced before and after photos of how the development would change the area between the Portsmouth Road and the Thames.
The new plan from Hydro Properties includes 64 homes at a cost of five hundred thousand pounds and a floating pontoon.
It’s being considered by Kingston Council.

Blind man named as Royals' chairman
In 2010 Tony Shearman made national headlines when he became one of the first blind managers of a sighted team in the country after forming the Claygate Royals Foleys U7s to ensure his son had a team to play in. Two years on, the 51-year-old former BBC Radio Five Live Sports Producer now finds himself as chairman of the club, its 30 teams and 350-plus players.
"It's a big task," said Tony following his election earlier this month, "But I love a challenge and it's one I'm relishing. I was somewhat daunted by the prospect of following in the footsteps of my predecessor Richard Padun, whose vision and leadership in the last two years has taken the club to a new level, but he has made the task ahead of me considerably easier."
Tony will combine his new role with his team managerial responsibilities and continue to work as a Freelance Producer & Presenter with the Beeb whilst juggling a busy home life with his wife and four children, three of whom play for the club with the youngest soon to join her brothers and sister wearing the famous blue & red colours.
