Want to know the names of Waverley’s planning gurus? And, hear about the huge success they are NOW making of the council’s planning function…
And, according to the Planning Portfolio Holder, Cllr Liz Townsend, they are doing a damn fine job.
She told a meeting of Waverley Council that threats of Waverley’s planning function being taken by the government into ‘special measures’ had been lifted.
She said this was entirely due to Waverley’s planning team’s hard work and dedication, which she said after “a Herculean effort” had achieved and dealt with 97%, which was well above the 70% threshold for dealing with minor planning applications.
She said the government had confirmed this on the 4th of October.
