The Protestors protested – the Experts Examined – and the Moaners – did what they always do – they moaned and they moaned on and on….for over four long hours!
But The Dunsfold Park planning application for 1,800 houses and accompanying business use and an amazing package of £35m worth of Infrastructure was granted by 10 votes to eight. However, we here at the Waverley Web expect the anti’s will antagonise and the protesters will keep protesting until Nelson Gets his Eye Back!
One thing is certain the future isn’t orange – despite Charlie’s protestations! (aka Charles Orange The Chairman of Hascombe Parish Council or Protect Our Waverley as he is known locally. We’ve heard that his group is now turning its attention on protecting the countryside in Farnham – around Haslemere and in Cranleigh?
Nothing really changes does it? Dunsfold’s very own nonagenarian sat knitting at the guillotine (not that we would recognise her, so she may have been tucked up at home with a Horlicks) as Waverley’s Joint Planning Committee waded through paperwork that could resurface the A281 Horsham/Guildford road end to end.
She gave Alfold Councillor Kevin De’Anus strict instructions before he left home saying: I put you there – now deliver the goods. Why? because the Alfold Parish Councillor lives on the approach road to Dunsfold Park, never declares a pecuniary interest and will not give up fighting her corner until the old lady sings!
Of course we were there! We expect you spotted at least four of our Waverley Web’ers who were listening to the noises off – and there were plenty of those! It was bad inside Waverley Towers – but the language outside was fitting only for the docks!
Of course we couldn’t possibly comment – but do these people who dish the dirt on the Flying Scotsman actually know the man? We certainly don’t – but after tonight’s slanderous banter in the back row – we might just give him a call!
Well now it’s all over bar … even more shouting, the Waverley Webber’s can now turn their sights onto the next round of Louisa M Alcott’s tale of … What Dunsfold Did and What Dunsfold Did Next?
But in the meantime (until we prepare a more detailed post) – we are signing off for a nice gin and tonic and a lie down – and to bathe our bloodshot eyes with Optrex!
