Roll up, roll up… to jump on the Waverley development wagon… So upset are some parish councillors in Cranleigh, that they have demanded to be included in any future meetings with wannabe developers, eager to concrete over Cranleigh. What about Alfold Parish Council, some them want to develop there?
They don’t want the future of their village decided by the few – the Ellis’s,one of whom chairs the meeting, the Stennetts. In the driving seat is Surrey County Councillor Alan Young, who is beginning to make his predecessor, Councillor Andrew Povey, look like Mary Poppins.
“It’s almost laughable,” one ‘insider” told WW, on firstname.lastname@example.org, “the borough council will soon have to use the Council Chamber, as there will be so many people there. Now some developers say they want to hold a separate secret meeting among themselves and other interested parties – rather than at a secret meeting that everyone can attend that will no longer be secret.”
Is the ‘secret’ secret out? Will we now have to find someone who will tell us about the REAL, secret meeting.
P.S The usual crowd will be there – Thakeham Homes; Berkeley’s; Knowle Park Initiative; Crown Hall Estates- perhaps, or perhaps not, Threadneedle who want to develop the Hewitt’s Industrial Estate but have had their application turned down, because it is too close to the KPI site, – oops – did WW make a mistake, turned down because the Chamber of Trade didn’t want to lose an employment site?
When’s the next bus leaving – lets hope the whole disingenuous greedy bunch are on it.
