The Cranleigh Scuttlebutt has been giving the Waverley Web the latest mutter in the Cranleigh gutter circulating around one of the largest developments about to hit the “City of Cranleigh.”
Only joking Cranleigh but, we just can’t quite get over the Dunsfold anti’s calling Dunsfold Park – `’A New Town.” Though of course it might be if Godalming Town Council gets its way!
Berkeley Homes has planning permission for 425 homes on green fields off Knowle Lane and Alfold Roads, Cranleigh. However, a small portion of the site will boast Executive homes accessing Knowle Lane, with the major portion accessing Alfold Road in West Cranleigh. The two sites are separated.
It is believed another developer will provide housing, which includes the 40% affordable homes, which will then be offered by a housing association, approved by “Your Waverley.” And of course, if the present government’s housing policy continues, tenants will be given the Right to Buy, with a substantial discount after a given period has elapsed.
