Ewhurst’s Mrs Lay is not impressed with “Your Waverley’s” decision to take no action against developers for breaches of planning control.
Oh Dear Mrs Deirdre Lay – where have your been – on the planet Zonk? Is the village of Ewhurst in another universe? Don’t you read the Waverley Web – because if you had you would have realised that ignoring breaches of planning control for Developers with a big D is as regular an occurrence for Waverley Planners as a dose of laxatives is to the constipated.
Didn’t you know that development control is for the borough’s “little people” – an odd dormer window here, the height of a set of stables there – and an island in the middle of a duckpond…we could go on… but in the interest of our sanity we won’t!
But don’t worry your little head about “the people who live on the hill”- they have always been short of water in droughts, and some of them are supporting the development of Cranleigh New Town, of course as long as it’s nowhere near them!
It is all those people living in Cranleigh who get their water through 50/70 year-old pipes, well past their sell-by-date and which were made of asbestos cement lined pipes that should be concerning you Mrs Lay: read our post hereYou all know about the East’s “Stinkgate” now here comes- “Watergate.”
And… as for your comments about the proposed housing development at Dunsfold Park… We understood that it’s owners are being forced to provide almost £50m of infrastructure including schools, road improvements, leisure facilities etc… when that particular development is built.
The Waverley Web wouldn’t be in the slightest bit surprised if DP was asked to stump up another great dollop of cash towards providing new water pipes throughout the whole of the East of the borough, because …
… after all it is the local cash cow isn’t it?
… in fact what comes to mind here at the Waverley Web is…
… Not what is going to happen to the East of the borough if Dunsfold airfield is developed – but what will happen to the East /North/South East and West of the borough if it isn’t?
