The film has been produced by The Farnham Society.
As 16 shops are closing on the country’s high streets every day – work on Farnham’s Blightwells Yard continues! And, as far as we know – which includes 28 retail shops and restaurants. Last week “Your Waverley’s’ Executive declared a climate emergency sand the traffic build-up in Farnham has been awful over the Summer months. You can read why here:
This could be endorsed shortly by the Full Council. However, to make way for the Blightwells development in Farnham 100 trees have already been lost – and probably more to come. All sacrificed to provide homes and more shops and restaurants – when 2,868 similar outlets closed down in the first six months of this year. And if that isn’t bad enough – Waverley Borough Council is partnered by Surrey County Council.
The county council is investing over £50m towards Farnham’s new shopping experience!
So will ‘YW’ soon be reconsidering the make-up of its Blightwells fiasco under the new regime now running the show? Or is it already too late?
