The start of a new year is often a time of renewed hope in the eyes of change. For people in Surrey who are passionate about where they live, there will certainly be changes on their wish list for 2023.

Whether it is the rate of development in the county and new homes emerging, or the condition of the roads in Surrey, there will always be something that grinds people’s gears. We now want to hear from our readers exactly what this is, and if there was one change you could implement in Surrey in 2023, what would it be?

Perhaps you want to see improvements to the traffic system in your local town, or more police on the streets? Or should the county be providing more space and support for local businesses? Maybe you feel like Surrey’s council tax funds are being spent in the wrong place. Let us know what you think in the comments section.
