If you don’t live in Farnham – but care about what is happening in the borough of Waverley – watch this film … and be suitably shocked.

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:

‘Your Waverley’ has taken the first vital step to declare – A Climate Emergency.

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?

  1. Crikes… I don’t live in Farnham and have only been passed it – but what a mess. The ridiculous statement about re-planting trees and landscaping we all know is a fallacy… they replant spindly little saplings which take decades to achieve any sort of height and benefit to the environment. I honestly do feel for Farnham residents they deserve better than this shambolic mess

  2. We deserve more than sympathy from ‘Your Waverley’ we deserve an apology for the damage that has been inflicted on our beautiful town.
