‘Your Waverley’ makes a site visit to Thakeham Homes proposed new development on a floodplain in Cranleigh.


Members of Waverley Borough Council’s Joint Planning Committee are pictured below just after  they took off their waders on  a site visit to a notorious village flood plain.   Thakeham Homes will undoubtedly be given planning consent to build another shedload of homes in Elmbridge Road, Cranleigh.

The application which was deferred in July will be consented by the Joint Planning Committee, no doubt under the Chairmanship of Peter – never turn an application down if you possibly can (‘unless it has a fence around it’)  Isherwood (Conservative) Hindhead  on September 25.  

The landowner, who once  owned strings of Polo ponies was reported to the RSPCA as horses were up to their knees in mud and water. The site, adjacent to the Cranleigh Waters and the Wey and Arun Canal,  is under water most of the winter months.

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt!

As you can see they were all issued with special gear to  get them home and dry and all  set to stick their mitts in the air to ensure  yet another development is shoved through by council planning officers over there in the East of the borough.

Sadly as you can see from the picture here a few went missing – swept away on a tide of their  enthusiasm for the scheme no doubt… anyone who wants to buy a set of waders – should  apply to Your Waverley at the Burys, Godalming.

  1. Unless I am being a complete Numpty – Where is the JPC that you say was happening 25th September??? I thought it was odd that you mentioned it on the 26th September like DOH bit late – But there is no JPC for that date – Do confirm

  2. Still cannot find it – But there is a Dunsfold meeting on 3rd october – No Agenda…. Areas EASTERN on 4th CANCELLED why do we think that is?? It really hacks me off – We have a right to know in advance what is going to be discussed in case we wish to comment – Don’t we? I am fed up with rubbish uTube casts that you can barely hear – or cut out mid way and the rest of the rubbish that is emailed that shows some Techy trying to get the systems up and running – For Goodness sakes can they not get this small thing right? I don’t have time for this lack of technology and anyone doing anything about it. I work On-Line and expect a degree of accuracy that WBC seem incapable of providing. It is pathetic –

  3. We are as confused as you are. We understood there was to have been a meeting, but they move around all over the place at the moment. We have practically given up on the webcast, as, like you, we cannot hear what they are saying and have no idea who is saying it. They appear to start streaming for four hours before the meeting, and you can watch the officers chatting to each other. Waverley Borough Council, is quite simply, not fit for purpose.
    Unless of course it is their way of ensuring that we all give up watching what they are up to. You are right it is absolutely pathetic.
