See the tiny space on the left of the lorry in the two pictures below – try squeezing your car, even your bike, past this Monster. Well, this is now an everyday occurrence in the lives of Cranleigh’s country folk and it’s happening here in Farnham too!
Do the highway authority ever raise an objection to this, or any other development on Waverley’s narrow country lanes, or congested local roads … NO! Not any more they don’t. Yet they tell us to get on our bikes!
Did it raise an objection to an application to build 54 homes near one of the most dangerous bridges in Cranleigh and on a road that floods? NO.
Why? Because one highway official Mike Green, who is true to his name, GREEN, when responding to local concerns about possible traffic congestion and danger to children near proposed new schools in Parsonage Road, said:
‘Well – they will just have to get used to it, won’t they!
Well, Mr Green, perhaps you should pay attention to the serious implications of councils making wrong and dangerous decisions! Decisions that elsewhere in the country, which resulted in deaths and serious injury, could result in someone being forced to take responsibility for their actions!
The same applies to Waverley Planning Officers, who took their elected members on a site visit to this site before considering the scheme, but told them to park in Roberts Way, just about as far away from the Amlets Lane site entrance they could possibly get! Devious and duplicitous bunch!
Now, Cala Homes, who by the way suggested in their application that their employees would arrive in Cranleigh on their bikes or on the train, ( closed in the 60’s) want to remove some of the five bed properties and replace them with an extra 25 smaller homes!
When someone dies on Amlets Lane, will Mr Green be quite so confident about telling people – they will just have to get used to it!
