WELCOME TO THE HOUSE OF FUN.
Nobody can spell Alfold properly so we are joining with the populace – so Awfuld, Arfold, or any old Fold will do for the poor devils about to wear their little hearts inside their concrete/wellington boots over there on the Surrey/Sussex border!
Because there’s nothing boring about Government Inspector Jonathan Bore’s view of how things should look in ‘Your Waverley’ as he helps it plan its blueprint for development over the next 17 years.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas – for developers eager to bury the borough’s green and pleasant fields in lots more concrete! Now the examination in public of Waverley’s Daft Local Plan has ended … The Inspector/Developers/planners/ have all, ruminated and cogitated…
THE MAGIC FIGURE APPEARS TO BE 590 HOMES EVERY YEAR GIVING A MINIMUM FIGURE OF 8,850 – BUT THE DEVELOPERS WANT MORE!
But don’t worry Guys and Gals it isn’t written on tablets of stone…YET! Because when Waverley holds an Extraordinary Council Meeting next week – it will decide that it’s Daft Local Plan will go out to… wait for it… WAIT FOR IT…!
CONSULTATION! DURING THE SUMMER HOLIDAYS!
In a weeks time the planning plonkers are recommending approval of 27 homes on the Wyevale Garden Centre site on the A281, wiping out a local employment site and another 39 dwellings on land at Brockhurst – a green field just down the road at Alfold Crossways just a few hundred yards from the entrance to Dunsfold Park!
A week later a Government Inspector will hear Thakeham Homes’ Appeal to build 465 homes on agricultural land at Springbok in Alfold for Care Ashore. We make that 531 – doubling the size of Arford. Perhaps it will change its name along with its rural character?
So Alfold could soon be Upper Awfuld – Lower Arnold – or Nether Alfold Town ! All thanks to the dummies who opposed building on the largest brownfield site in the borough at Dunsfold airfield. And just guess whose planning to go there?
An Invasion of Irish Travellers! Remember – you heard it here first!
