Oh God! Do we hear them cry! Not that scurrilous spider again!
Well if you want to kill us off – get your feather dusters out for heaven’s sake!
We can fully understand WHY – Councillors are planning a move onto the new and fertile pastures near the Lammas Lands at the other end of town – but wonder if they might need flippers and snorkels to help them keep their heads above water in a Flood Zone 3. Wouldn’t they be safer at Waverley Towers?
Borough Road, Godalming was closed due to serious flooding in 2013!
FLOOD ZONE 3. Why would you have new offices in flood zone 3.
Still the former engineering services company of Parsons Brinckerhoff in Westbrook Mills in Borough Road, could provide a new home for The Council Offices and pave the way for redevelopment of The Burys – and a nice little earner for a cash strapped council that has recently moved into the property development business BIG TIME! In the meantime – The Burys is still open for … Biz – ask Liz?
The owners of the offices – close to Godalming Station – had sought planning permission in 2014 to turn the building into flats – but would you Adam & Eve it – yes – we know you would! Waverley Planners turned it down. Then another application to change it from B1a (office) to Class C3 (residential) use to provide 64 dwellings was withdrawn In January (2017)
Regular readers may remember our little Waverley Web’s mischievous missive written in 2015 when Waverley borough Council had a lightbulb moment! And, it wasn’t at the Executive Meeting on April 1st but on December 1st that the council decided not to change the lightbulbs!
This is a report by Officers for the EXECUTIVE ‘s consideration! So it has been on the cards for quite a while.
You Can Read it here: – Could Waverley be on the move?
This was one of the neighbours objections – but I don’t expect they will mind having ‘Your Waverley” knocking on the door to borrow a cup of sugar – will they?
