Sign up to stop Oil & Gas prospecting in Dunsfold village?

Here at the Waverley Web, it is not our style to put up Petitions – however, we thought this might just be up the streets, or lanes of Dunsfold villagers who are battling with UK Oil and Gas.

Following a  public inquiry in July 2021   residents in the villages around the Hascombe Hills area of Waverley are still waiting for  Communities Secretary Michael Gove to make up his mind whether UCOG can drill on land South of Dunsfold Road and East of High Loxley Road.

The Waverley Web lets Dunsfold oil & gas protestors have their say.

Will drilling for oil and gas at Dunsfold become more attractive – due to the energy crisis?

Every picture tells a story as the Private Cranleigh Flood Forum gathers.

 Guildford & villages MP Angie Richardson has never been accused of being a shrinking violet and shying away from a good picture opportunity.

You can see from the picture below who was concentrating on the flood issues which have dogged the town of Cranleigh for more years than residents care to remember, and who was concentrating on the bigger issue – smiling for the camera and her ever-present PR.

Needless to say,  Waverley & Surrey County Councillor Liz Townsend, who has battled tirelessly for years to rid Cranleigh of the scourge of flooding, and burst pipe issues with the statutory authorities, looks decidedly unimpressed. Perhaps even angry?

Why?  Because the meeting was hijacked by Angie’s PR stunt?

Or that the Flood Forum held in public, when chaired so successfully by former MP Anne Milton since its inception,  was attended by a huge crowd of villagers is now held in private for a chosen few?

As ‘Your Waverley’ pins its hopes on getting its Local Plan Part Two approved by an Inspector, the Government guru has posed a host of questions he wants answering.

And the man faced with answering them is Graham Parrot – Waverley’s Planning Policy Officer.

WW followers may remember those heady days when Mr Parrott burned the midnight oil preparing Local Plan versions 1, 2 and then 3 – which then once approved by a Government Inspector became the infamous Local Plan Part 1. Now he’s about to go into the ring and spar with yet another Government Inspector  G J Fort BA PGDip LLM MCD MRTPI on Local Plan Part 2.

Waverley planners have refused a proposed Rudwick development due to massive local opposition?

So is another planning appeal on its way?

A scheme for 37 homes on land at Windacres Farm in Church Street, Rudgwick has been refused by Waverley Planners eastern committee. The agricultural land has been used for many years for the popular Rudfwick Steam Fair.


 Other land south of Cox Green has been developed by Berkeley Homes.  Now, residents of the village near Cranleigh on the Surrey Sussex border say – enough is enough and their villages does not have the services to support more housing.

That must ring a few bells with other towns and villages elsewhere in the borough?
