Has the whiffy tink wafting over the high street, and concerns about “Your Waverley’s” Daft Local Plan stirred village leaders into action?
Faced with taking 48% of Waverley’s housing development Cranleigh parish councillors want to hear residents views at a “drop in.” The event takes place at Cranleigh Village Hall from 6p.m. and has opted to speak to villagers personally rather than opt for the usual public meeting, which it was feared could turn into a shouting match.
We have heard from our mounting band of Cranleigh WW contributors that the general unease about Cranleigh’s worsening image is giving councillors cause for concern. Some doubt the village’s borough councillors are concerned enough to turn up to answer to the public. The Stennett duo have gone roo hunting in Oz, following their successful planning coup on their land in the Green Belt and others are unwell. But everyone hopes Alan “of the secret meetings with developers – all except Dunsfold Park – Young,” will be there to reassure villagers they have no worries?
This is the public notice: So if you Care about Cranleigh’s future, better turn up, or forever hold your peace… that is… until someone sends the diggers onto a green field near you, in which case it may be too late? In fact with almost 800 already in the bag, with extant permissions granted, and another 500 in the pipeline, sadly Cranleigh’s fate may already be sealed.
