BUT DO WE BELIEVE Waverley’s new boy CEO, Tom Horwood? – THAT IS THE QUESTION?
And.. when Waverley’s new 106 Officer arrives – will he be empowered to shine a light on all those 106 Agreements (Agreements with developers to spend money on infrastructure to mitigate the effects of development) in the areas where the effects of that development will be so keenly felt? Because if he is – he’s in for a BIG JOB!
A VERY BIG JOB!
Does his letter prompt more questions than answers?
Does Blightwells actually have planning consent yet?
Funny comment where he says “I don’t recognise the figure of 20m.” He wouldn’t recognise too much about the figure – which was exactly £18m – the time, because he is still a new boy on the block and wasn’t actually around at the time all these figures were being aired publicly.
Is the whole borough confused about where the 106 monies go? Do they benefit the whole borough? Or, do they benefit the areas where developers are contributing to the housing and retail stock?
Because in Cranleigh there is much angst about several hundred thousand pounds from the Berkeley Homes (450 home) development, and monies from other developments, being contributed to provide improved sports facilities ( a 3G sports pitch) into Cranleigh Public School, a registered charity and one of the most expensive public schools in the country!
One thought on “Letting ‘Your Waverley’s’ head honcho have his say on Blightwells.”
WW I must be being naïve but surely there is a S106 register which shows what has been paid – where it has gone (ie SCC/ WBC etc) and where it is allocated to be spent? Am I simply being naïve ? . If there isn’t one (as I am sure there isn’t) then there bally well should be one so we all know what the Developers Contributions are going on.
Or is that the job of the new S106 Officer? surely were could reduce costs of the S106 Officer if we just kept a simply Log of them- It isn’t rocket science is it? Spreadsheet may do it??
