This letter was sent recently to the Farnham Herald and WW believes everyone around the borough should read it.
HE APPEARS TO SUM UP THE FEELINGS OF MANY OF US HERE IN FARNHAM WHO BELIEVE WAVERLEY BOROUGH COUNCIL HAS PRESIDED OVER ONE OF THE BIGGEST LOCAL AUTHORITY FAILURES EVER.
Clocking up million upon millions of pounds of our taxpayers’ money is Waverley’s nemesis called East Street, Farnham.. The Crest Nicholson Town Centre Redevelopment, which appears to be going nowhere fast!
In fact – a 20 years go slow- during which much has happened in that great big wide world out there.
These are the Council’s Two Corporate Priorities –
EAST STREET AND THE DAFT LOCAL PLAN
Mr Wylde, bless him, claims WBC has spent £8m on East Street. WW knows from those “inside WBC” that it is very much more, because it does not account, properly for officers’ time, or the thousands of hours spent by councillors on jaw jaw and almost war war on Crest Nicholson’s worst nightmare. WW is well aware that CN is fed up to the back teeth of WBC too!
Don’t let them off the hook Mr Wylde, WW and its followers across the borough are watching with you!
Openness is ‘not the way’ that WBC does things (Council 15.12.15)
Asked whether WBC’s representative would give an update on the problems with Natural England’s long-awaited evidence, upon which Waverley’s Spatial Strategy and Local Plan depend, Cllr Knowles didn’t even know that Cllr Peter Isherwood is the representative on the Thames Basin Heaths Joints Strategic Partnership Board (TBHSPA JSPB).
As the video shows, allowing a Councillor to give an honest and unrehearsed response, and updating Members on the main issue determining the Local Plan, is “Not the way we’ll do [things]” at Waverley.
