Another piece of Alfold countryside to bite the dust?

Village leaders in Alfold have sent out a message to  residents – speak up now if you wish to object to another 80 homes being built in the village.

Although the deadline for commenting on a scheme for 80 new dwellings on land adjacent to the BP Garage site near Alfold Crossways was last week – there is still time.
Here’s the link:
The parish clerk said:
Everyone in the Alfold Parish has the right and opportunity to make individual representations on the proposals – not just the Parish Council. Councillors urge you to think about the effect of more houses in Alfold and whether you would welcome them if you would like to make a submission. Waverley Borough Council requires 5 letters of objection before the matter is referred to the Planning Committee for determination. If not enough letters are received, it will not get this far. It is so important that villagers have their say in the future of Alfold, and this is application will have far-reaching implications in the long term. Please do use your voice – Julie

That man in Bristol has been busy dumping homes on Alfold – again!

Look at point 21 in the Government Inspector’s decision on another Alfold appeal site, where the claim is made that Waverley has only a 3.9-year housing supply. then you will realise how important it is to object, object, object.

Wish you had looked after your teeth?

We are in extraordinary times!

Non Urgent dentistry is suspended, as dentists could be asked to provide support for the National Health Service.

Dentists have been advised to stop all face-to-face consultations until further notice and all routine non- urgent surgery has stopped and replaced with a remote urgent care service providing telephone triage. If you are in a bad way you will be referred to your local urgent dental care system which has been set up in every NHS region to provide EMERGENCY DENTAL TREATMENT.

You wouldn’t Adam and Eve it, but some people are already considering self-extraction! That brought a howl of pain and laughter from our Waverley Web team, as they reminisced over Tom Hanks’ ‘do it himself dentistry’ when he bashed his tooth out with a rock in the film Cast Away when stranded on a Desert Island.  WW suggests you don’t watch it until the present crisis is over, particularly if you have a niggling toothache!  We have been contacted by one of our readers who lost a filling a few days ago and has been forced to resort to a do-it-yourself filling kit.

Joking apart here’s some very helpful official information.

We thought James Robinson’s poem put up on the Cranleigh Community Board was worth a general airing across the borough.  Well done James.

Happy to share the efforts of our local poets here at the Waverley Web. Stay well everyone, if we heed the advice – we will come out stronger than ever before.

Free parking for all in ‘Your Waverley’ in a bid to help NHS and key workers.

A message from Waverley Borough Councillor Nick Palmer.

My Labour colleague George Wilson suggested to me (as the portfolio-holder for parking) that we should make Waverley’s car parks free of charge for carers, NHS staff and other essential workers.

I was initially sceptical because the council is staring into a financial pit with everything that’s going on, but on reflection, I agreed that it made sense not to charge the very people who come to our area to help us. In addition, my LibDem colleague Paul Follows said that in many areas people were actually struggling to park on-street because everyone’s at home! – so it really makes sense to welcome these vital visitors to our car parks.

 John Ward, the Farnham Resident council leader, pointed out that it would avoid endless bureaucracy and hassle if we simply made them free till further notice to anyone who needs them. The other Executive members swiftly agreed, as did the leader of the Conservative Opposition, Julia Potts, so it will take effect from tonight – a nice example of cross-party cooperation at this challenging time for us all.

Best Wishes Nick.
