HANG ON TO YOUR WIG YOUR HONOUR. WAVERLEY COUNCIL WILL BE BACK IN COURT TO FIGHT YET ANOTHER DAY TO SAVE ITS LOCAL PLAN.

If you don’t at first succeed try, try, try, and try, again and again?  Protect our Waverley and the Campaign for the Preservation of Rural England hope to persuade yet another Judge in the Court of Appeal to grant them leave to appeal. Then no doubt next time .. to the Supreme Court, the Pope and then Th Almighty?!

‘The battle to stop the development of Dunsfold Aerodrome is over,’ claims POW. But, the war with Waverley is not over yet.

Says POW:

‘there is nothing further we can do to prevent this controversial housing development after losing our legal challenge in the High Court.’

Capt’n Bob Lies, Chairman of the motley crew, claims,

‘It will be a huge disappointment to residents in the Eastern villages and in Guildford and Godalming that the approval for the development of Dunsfold Aerodrome will proceed.’

Typical POW. Typical Capt’n Bob. Utterly graceless in defeat!

Having poured over the Alfold Parish Council’s accounts, one curious regular reader did a spot of maths and sent us the following:

At the last census, Waverley Borough had a population of circa 123,000 and, as we all know, POW likes to boast ad nauseum that it ‘represents a very large and continually growing number of concerned local residents.’

Like hell it does! According to Crystal Tipps Weddells’ cash books. She banked

99 donations…

for POW’s campaign during 2017/18.  If you discount a single, measly donation by POW themselves and nine contributions from the Parishes – which came from their Precepts, not the voting public – that goes down to…

just 89 donations from members of the Waverley public.

Now, correct us if we are wrong, but surely that means…

… a mere 0.07% of Waverley residents dipped into their pockets to support POW and its aims? 

So much for POW claiming to represent ‘a very large and continually growing number of concerned local residents’ … laugh, We nearly peed our pants when our readers’ calculator spewed out …

0.07%!!!

So having wasted shed-loads of Taxpayer funds on behalf of 0.07% of Waverley residents it doesn’t even have the humility to offer the other 99.3% of local residents an apology for the many hundreds of thousands of pounds it has cost them, at a time when local services are being cut to the bone.

Adding  insult to injury, these publically funded wastrels have the cheek to announce in the same breath that it will join the CPRE in seeking leave to appeal in the Court of Appeal against the High Court’s decision that Waverley’s housing requirement, as set out in its Local Plan Part 1 for 590 houses per annum should be maintained, including 83 to cover Woking’s perceived unmet need!

Screen Shot 2018-07-14 at 00.58.39Brace yourselves! Here comes another major legal challenge that, if given the go-ahead will cost the Waverley taxpayer (yes, that’s you!) another shed load of money!

Our suggestion for POW: pack it in and concentrate on an argument you stand a chance of winning: the erection of a bloody great hanger on a green field outside the Aerodrome you so detest.

Or better still,  for all our sakes sod off and give this borough a break.

    • Not quite all..I certainly didn’t vote for that plan..

      I will be asking what the rulers at Waverley have in mind over this challenge though in the morning…

      • Perhaps they will tell the public. Probably at the next Full Council meeting with the webcast swsitched to off!!!!

  2. Oh dearest Stacy, we are not even slightly fooled but POW’s sudden interest in the borough of Waverley.

    This is nothing more than a smokescreen in an attempt to ensure that if it suceeds, and the numbers are reduced, POW can then lodge an objection to Phase 2 of Dunsfold. What a silly little billy you are – surely they didn’t fool such a clever little bird as you?

    • well of corse they wuold Object … that go’s with out sayin … they do’nt wan’t houses bilt allover that Green Feild Sigth;;; even tho its suposed to be a Brown Feild cos its got some run ways innit … thats like sayin a maniciurd gardn lorne is a Previusly Develapped Land cos its got a few Steping Stones innit,,

      the A 281 is jamed full of trafick enuff as itis … with 1000s of more houses it wuold be jamed to a Stand Still.. an then all the Cars {wot arnt all ready Trapped in the Jam} will be Rat Runnin thru the Countrie Lanes in stead … not to mension Vanns & Lorrys and Tankors

      but this same Arguement go’s for the Wholle of Waverly … frinstance i allways try to avoyd Farnam if i can cos its jamed … and Goddleming at rush our is’nt much better … an Farnbrough an Guilford an Wokeing,,,, trafick every whe’re nower-days,, an all they {Waverly} wanna do is bild more houses so their are more&more Cars in the Burrourgh … and POW is tryin to figth aggenst it ;;; Good 4 Them i say ~~
