Will it soon be daggers at dawn for the past and present Leaders of “Your Waverley?”
A little bird tells us that not all is sweetness and light at Waverley Towers following the decision to approve and press ahead with the Daft Local Plan in the face of some internal opposition. From now on, we will call the Daft Local Plan – The Local Plan despite some of it being daft as although it is not set in tablets of stone – or perhaps more appropriately – set in concrete – it will soon be on its way to a Government Inspector, so we all have to be grateful for small mercies.
Bet the Inspector can hardly wait… hope its the same guy examining it as last time because he had a real sense of humour, or perhaps that wasn’t a smile, more of a grimace as he kicked it into touch! We digress…
Because former Leader Robert Knowless has had a bit of a disagreement with Gone to Potts about same Local Plan which he said he, just could NOT support.
He has concerns over Infrastructure and Public Transport and he told the Extraordinary Council Meeting that some of the information before them was “simply not true”
Not true – does he mean … lies … oh dear…not that tangled web again… from the same man who as council leader told the Cranleigh Civic Society they were spreading rumours about the £1million the council had set aside (behind closed doors) to work with Hamish Robbie of The Crownhall Estates to build a new industrial estate in Cranleigh’s Green Belt at Manfield Park.
Oh! no he didn’t – oh yes he did …. and by the way the £1m of taxpayers money has just been moved from one year’s budget into anothe , or so the budget papers tell us – so the Know-less lying git Knows-more than he is letting on… so now who’s the leading liar in the Waverley lair?
He said about the public transport provision in The Plan… “the truth of the matter is what we have been told here is not true” particularly in the more rural parts of the borough which he said was “utter nonsense.” He said public bus services had been cut substantially – down 20% in his own Town of Haslemere – and “it is not going to be improved, in fact it is quite the reverse – so I am not going to put my name to something I know not to be true.” Of course what he fails to recognise is that The Plan is already out of date, and the information provided by Surrey County Council Highways was given long before it decided to slash the county’s bus services.
So he … abstained along with Kevin De’Anus (Con Alfold); John Gray (Con; Dunsfold) Richard All at – Seabourne (Con Bramley); and John Williamson (Farnham Residents).
Oh! and By-Pass Byham (Con Bramley) said he arrived at the meeting determined to vote against The Plan but so convinced was he by all the arguments he had heard during the meeting, and being a well-behaved Tory Tosser, changed his mind and supported it! Fickle fellow! Now whose not going to get a By-Pass?
