Well – why wouldn’t Thakeham Homes be confident of success?
Because everyone else is!
Why? QUITE SIMPLY BECAUSE IF IT DOESN’T MOVE EVERYONE WANTS TO BUILD IN ALFOLD
Over there in the East of the borough planning applications are arriving faster than the first class post.
The scheme mentioned in the article below, (click on the link) for over 400 homes is just part of a Horsham developer Thakeham Homes cunning plan to dump another load of houses on the Surrey/Sussex border village, doubling its size. Care Ashore, (The Seaman’s Union) who own the site, is a beleaguered charity struggling for survival on an estate called Springbok, with only bread and dripping to sustain itself!
So having been given the thumbs down by “Your Waverley,” it now intends to go to appeal to the Government claiming the decision was “undemocratic” and “did not reflect the merit of the scheme.” The firm’s managing director Robert Boughton says he is “confident” of success. Well – after all those secret meetings at “Your Waverley” and with the powers that be at No 10, it has to be granted by a Government Inspector – doesn’t it? Why we hear you ask – because the borough of Waverley still doesn’t have an Adopted Local Plan!
Other Alfold schemes in the pipeline include:
Land at Wildwood Golf Club, Horsham Road: Land in Rosemary Lane, Alfold; Land on the A281 at Alfold Crossways; Land at the Medland Garden Centre on the A281 Horsham Road; Land at Dunsfold Road, Alfold; Land adjacent to Chilton Close, Loxwood Rd (52) Land at Chilton Close, rear of the Willows(13) and so it goes on…including homes granted at over 100 soon to be built at Sweeters Copse, Loxwood Road. So another 400 won’t make much difference?
What WW can’t help wondering, is where is all that poo going – into Cranleigh’s Sewage Works and the Cranleigh Waters ? Or will it wing its way into the Flying Scotsman’s shiny new sh*t pit? Or, it could always go to Loxwood – where properties wallowed in the mucky brown stuff during the 2013/14 floods!
Residents have contacted the Waverley Web saying they have just spotted a green field, without a yellow notice on it!
We say : “Not for long.”
