Step-free access at Ash Vale Station

Michael Gove is pressing for step-free access to be installed at Ash Vale Station, and on 4 June 2018 he wrote to the Transport Secretary, the Rt. Hon. Chris Grayling MP.

Developments in Ash and Tongham

Many local residents have expressed concerns about the number of housing developments in the Ash and Tongham area, and the lack of infrastructure to cope with an inevitable increase in population and the number of cars on the already congested roads.

Fairoaks Airport

Proposals have been put forward to develop Fairoaks Airport into a Garden Village of 1,500 homes. Local residents fear the impact it would have on the neighbouring village of Chobham, which already suffers from congested traffic.

Michael Gove MP said:

Frimley Green Traffic Lights

Local residents are campaigning against the prospect of 4-way traffic lights being installed on the Green as a consequence of the significant housing development coming to Deepcut. They maintain that if traffic lights are installed the whole character of the village Green will be altered.

Superfast Broadband for Surrey

Michael Gove welcomed the rollout of superfast broadband connectivity across Surrey Heath. To date, the Government-funded Broadband Delivery UK programme has made superfast broadband available to 5,116 homes and businesses in Surrey Heath.

Rail Services

Michael wholeheartedly supports the fight for a greatly improved rail service, and is working together with local Councillors to ensure residents’ voices are heard.
