Air pollution in Waverley’s towns; bats lost in central Farnham; badgers drowned in Cranleigh; ancient woodland and wildlife lost in Rowledge; Hedgerows wilting and dying in Ewhurst.
Wildlife and habitat, ancient trees and woodlands are disappearing at an alarming rate all over the borough of Waverley as the onward march of developers proceeds unabated.
Waverley officers have admitted they cannot keep pace with the rising number of complaints from the public on numerous breaches of planning conditions. So far, they have taken no action against serious breaches including felling trees covered by Tree Preservation Orders, (TPO’s). They have also turned a blind eye to a major stream being dredged illegally in Cranleigh! Along with ‘YW’ are those who also bear responsibility for caring for, and protecting our environment. The Environment Agency, Thames Water, Natural England and the lead local flood Authority – Surrey County Council.
The townsfolk of Haslemere have been filming and photographing distressed deer at a proposed development site in Scotland Lane where wannabe developers have torn down ancient hedgerows and fenced in wildlife in anticipation of building 50 home in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. A site, where ‘Your Waverley’ has recently banned and threatened legal action to remove residents’ noticeboards. Haslemere given a good smack by ‘Your Waverley’s’ iron fist.
