There have been a number of keyless car thefts in the Tandridge area over the last few weeks.

Keyless car theft, also known as relay theft, is the phrase given to the theft of cars with a keyless entry system. Criminals use equipment to intercept the signal from the key inside the house and use this to unlock and start the car and then drive away. This means that even if your car and home are secure, thieves can still unlock, start and steal your car. There are simple steps that you can take to reduce your risk of falling victim to this type of crime:

  • Box It | Bag It | Block It
  • Box It: placing your keys in a metal tin can be enough to block the signal from travelling any further.
  • Bag It: another option is to purchase a signal-blocking pouch and keep your keys in this when they’re not in use.
  • Block It: where possible, consider using other vehicles to block your keyless car in so it can’t be easily driven away.
Some keys have an option to turn off the signal transmitted from it, sometimes with the double press of a button, so it’s worth checking your manual to see whether yours has this functionality.

Gatwick Airport (GAL) are now consulting on the proposals to bring the existing Northern Runway into routine use alongside the Main Runway. Departures would be shared between both runways. The Northern Runway would be used for smaller aircraft. All arrivals would continue to use our Main Runway.
The consultation began on 9 September 2021 and runs for 12 weeks until 11:59pm on 1 December 2021.
Now is the chance to have your say. Go to the link to find out more...

 



The ongoing works that have appeared on Shipley Bridge Road are being investigated by TDC.



A comprehensive letter from the inspector Mr Philip Lewis BA(Hons) MA MRTPI, regarding the examination of Tandridge District Council's ‘Our Local Plan: 2033’  is of the view that "withdrawal of the plan from examination is looking like the most appropriate option given the circumstances".
