Frustrated of Farnham they are many, but did they vote, and for whom?
One of our followers is so fed up with being ignored by Waverley BC that he has written to firstname.lastname@example.org saying it was his understanding the Localism Act of 2011 includes the following:
- Developers must consult communities before submitting certain planning applications, having regard to any advice that their local planning authority may provide.
- They must consider any responses they receive before they finalise their proposals and submit applications,
- When submitting applications they must account for how they have consulted the local community, what comments they have received, and how they have taken those comments into account.
He tells us at WW that he has lived next to the Hop Fields in Farnham for decades and is very disappointed that WBC saw fit to approve the building of 120 homes by Taylor Wimpey. Details are available on the following links:-
Read Post …Will thousands of homes be fit for purpose..
the development called for comments by WBC closed on 31 March 2014, and we learnt the decision was made less than 24 hours later on 1st April. This in itself is an affront to the concept of localism. We do not recall the requirements of the Localism Act 2011 having been met and would like to ask your advice in this regard.
Needless to say he hasn’t had a reply yet…watch this space, we will let you know when he does.
