Get your hankies out – because this may make you cry!
Click on the video which reveals the green green grass close to home and now under threat for the people of Alfold.
But… don’t wait too long because before you can say “GOVERNMENT INSPECTOR” it could be covered in concrete!
Nearly 500 homes could soon cover this vast area of countryside which has been farmed for many hundreds of years as part of the Sachel Court Estate on the Surrey/Sussex border. This proposed development by the Thakeham Home Thugs – has been refused by “Your Waverley” but Thakeham is “confident” that the site will become Alfold New Town adjacent to the proposed Dunsfold Park new settlement on an adjoining Brownfield site.
Where does it intend to dispose of its poo – at the proposed New Dunsfold Poo Factory?
NO… into the Cranleigh Sewage Treatment Works – presently overflowing with the stuff of other people’s lives- and stinking out the pour souls of Elmbridge in the West of Cranleigh.
Could Alfold get the worst of both worlds? Very likely. Why? Because “Your Waverley” still has no adopted Local Plan! And…because Care Ashore the local Seaman’s Charity is determined to persuade a Government Inspector that the viability of its “charitable” operation is in jeopardy if development is not given the go ahead.
So doubling the small Surrey village is a small price to pay – isn’t it?
If you want to oppose the development – better do it now – or forever hold you peace. The original application generated 237 letters of objection and a public meeting where the scheme was opposed by villagers but supported by Care Ashore’s Residents.
Just as a matter of interest:
Thakeham Homes’ latest publicly available accounts show that their net assets are still nearly minus £3million. The company is still bankrolled by Isla Morada Finance to the tune of £31m, only slightly down from last year’s debt. This is clearly an unreliable partner for a responsible charity to be aligned with. However, there have been at least two alternative financial plans put to Care Ashore which have been rejected.
