When you see the prices of these properties – How many people in the rural village can afford these?
Affordable Homes for village people? Like hell they are.
This is happening at this end of the former village of Alfold at The Crossways/Horsham Road on the A281. The former home of the popular Wyevale Garden Centre – Kerching!
Just wait and see what will be coming soon to the agricultural land off Loxwood/Dunsfold Road with Thakeham Homes. It will make this circa 150 New Homes look like nothing.
A 3 Bed House for 1.29 Million! Really??
The affordable prices quoted are our Alfold mole’s figures based on the 70% of Market value… Not exactly “Affordable”, are they?
The Waverley Web hopes the purchasers of these new homes realise that they will have 86 New Neighbours on the East side of the Field… As for the proposed development of The Wildwood Golf Club just across the road? Who knows what could be coming there? Another garden village, perhaps?
If the Thakeham bullies get their evil way with the planners – or more likely a Government Inspector – then added to the 99 homes already approved on the Loxwood Road in Alfold – another 66 will be coming soon due to a current planning application in the pipeline. Then, that is just the thin end of the Alfold wedge – as Thakeham has already revealed to residents at a recent consultation that it intends to build even more on the Merchant Seamen’s land. In return for a couple of measly footpaths and perhaps a few buses cancelled by Stagecoach, no doubt.
So far, the stampede of developers trousering cash for building in Alfold has given back to the village – ZILCH! And if Liz Truss is true to her word, no doubt there will be fracking heading its way under Alfold too?
With the last remaining Alfold village shop closed – and the nearest shop and post office at Loxwood shutting any day soon – God help the residents referred to by /Waverley planners as…
“Poor old AWfold.”
