  • Box Hill sign 2
    Petition: Apr 11, 2019

    The postal address for properties in Box Hill village is Tadworth - 5 miles away. This causes problems, especially for delivery drivers who do not know the area. Also it denies our community the identity that comes from having its own postal address.

    We call on the Royal Mail to recognise the identity of Box Hill as a village by including it as a non-madatory location in the postal addresses for properties in the village.

    This admission came as Liberal Democrat County Councillor Hazel Watson (Dorking Hills) questioned the Cabinet Member responsible for introducing the charges at the Cabinet Meeting held at County Hall.
