Well there you are then  – if you cannot be bothered to read all the reasons why Waverley Council want another green field to be  built on and why the officers’  have made a recommendation to councillors that it should be approved  – here they are in a nutshell :

  • No objection from WBC planning “experts” because they have No Local Plan and No five year housing land supply.
  • No objection from Surrey County Council’s Highway Authority!
  • No objection from Thames Water – despite there being a very real problem at the Cranleigh Sewerage Works.
  • No objection from a variety of other statutory agencies.
  • No Objection from the Environmental Health Dept of WBC.


There is plenty of objection from the Locals almost 90 at publication of this post – including the village leaders at Ewhurst Parish Council. This is what it said…
