Former Tory county councillors Victoria & Alan Young want to join the developers concreting over Ewhurst.
In 2018 Waverley Web wrote the post featured below.
Here’s an extract.
“Then along comes former Conservative Surrey Councillor Alan Young snaffling up a property in Mapledrakes Road, Ewhurst, which he’s presently sitting on, keeping nicely warm and hoping to hatch another shedload of housing soon now that the trees have been felled? Oops did we forget, the property was purchased from a Ewhurst parish councillor, who threatened to sue the Waverley Web, after “a friend” informed us that it had been owned by the P Cllr’s late father not him personally !!
So what better time to hit ‘Your Waverley’ with planning application No: WA/2022/00763) for 20 homes at Cobblers Brook Mapledrakes Road Ewhurst – and who better than to pally up with Mr and Mrs Alan Young than the notorious developer Hamish Robbie. of Crownhall Estates?
Not that the owners want you to know it is their application!!.
Preserving the countryside –“I shall continue to fight tooth and nail to preserve our beautiful countryside and unique villages.”
So hard has he worked that in November last year, he clear-felled all the oak trees (some 100 years old) on the site a week before the Environment Bill was due to pass? We guess that he saw this in the paper: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2021/08/14/tree-felling-surges-england-tough-new-rules-come-force/
Now villagers are ganging up to object to the scheme, one says.
“Ewhurst is being destroyed through greed not need.”
Villagers’ reasons for opposing the scheme will follow in another post.
