House to house lobbying of residents, claims of bully boy tactics against some of the Charity’s residents by its own officials, these are just some of the concerns that are surfacing, and the atmosphere in the small rural village on the Surrey/Sussex border appears anything but tranquil.
WW is hearing from its mounting number of contributors, we are now at an amazing 11, after only a few weeks, – and some are claiming that all is not well in leafy Alfold.
“We really are under siege here, people knocking on the doors, asking us to send letters supporting Thakeham Homes scheme, and this week something really bizarre happened, a number of us had the Lords’ Prayer on a white sheet of paper with no name or contact details pushed through the doors. What is going on – do we have to start praying for deliverance from damned developers?” We understand the same tactics are being used in Cranleigh.”
Another villager claims there is an unhealthy friendship between one of the Charity’s Trustees who is also a borough councillor with a villager called “Oh Carol.” They say, “ it is beginning to smell very strong around here.”
Another called “Alfold fighting Back” has passed a document to WW which reveals that the Charity, Care Ashore, which claimed at a public meeting it is “impoverished” has recently bought a bungalow on the Loxwood Road for its Chief Executive for £555,000 and has millions in reserves.
Other developers are also jumping onto the Alfold bandwagon. A screening opinion has gone into Waverley (SO/2015/0000) for up to 60 dwellings on land west of Sweeters Copse, Loxwood Road, Alfold. There are several others revving up to put in applications too.
Whose fault is that?
No Local Plan !
OH! COME ON WAVERLEY COUNCIL – THERE IS ONLY SO MUCH A VILLAGE CAN TAKE!
