Ye Gods just when you think it can’t get any worse – it just does!
WHEN WILL SOMEONE, SOMEWHERE, DO SOMETHING FOR THOSE POOR SOULS OVER THERE IN CRANLEIGH?
Is there anyone at home at,”Your Waverley” – “Your Thames Water,” Your Surrey County Council,” The Environment Agency, the poo patrol, water wizards … anyone… just anyone?
Last week Thames Water was unloading thousands of bottles of water, bringing in tankers because 2,000 residents were without water due to a series of damaged water mains. Some were without water for 24 hours, some even longer. Children were sent home from school because they couldn’t use the loo, and the beleaguered residents of Amlets Lane (you know the one where Cala Homes intends to build 125 homes) were without power too! No lecky, no water, no hope and no way out, because the traffic hold ups stretched for miles?
It was so bad, according to the natives who contacted us, it is rumoured that the Flying Dutchman, who lives adjacent to the Cala Homes site in Amlets Lane has sold his nursery site in Elmbridge Road, picked up his clogs and is heading for his homeland?
Councillors refused to give him permission to build 265 homes earlier this year , but officers have subsequently included it in… THE DAFT LOCAL PLAN! But villagers who worked with him on his “vision” to “help Cranleigh” tell us he was so mad at the decision he’s threatened to sell up and leave the area.
Why? because all those other bloody cheeky developers, have been given their permissions. Ungrateful bunch, and after all those years of sitting through those damned “secret meetings” he set up for them all with, borough, county councillors and planning officers! And, how did they repay him for all that hard work, refused his scheme, allowed all the rest to take home the goodies from the party, including one who is about to build “much-needed homes for local people” right next door to him! Some people have such a flipping nerve!
OR … Perhaps
So there we are then – tankers away in the village that has a history of flooding – but not a drop to drink, or flush with. And if that wasn’t bad enough – you couldn’t make it up…because …
this is to-day’s Twitter Storm brewing over the village dubbed “Poor old Cranleigh.” by “Your Waverley” that wants to dump 48% of the borough’s housing over there. And yes guys and gals – we have heard all the way over here in Farnham that the stink in Cranleigh is as high as a kite! In fact the smell is currently wafting over our very own East Street!
And… where are its borough councillors – you know the ones who created this fine mess? All we can hear is the sound of silence from four and a loud bellow from one solitary soul who has been defending Cranleigh from the onward march of developers. Mary Foryszewski, along with her parish council colleagues and the Cranleigh Civic Society, left to fight Cranleigh’s corner!
Here’s just some of the Cranleigh mutter! But there’s more, much more!
