We are extremely disappointed to confirm that the Planning Inspectorate has upheld the Appeal submitted by Berkeley Homes for 425 dwellings on green fields South of Cranleigh High Street.
The main reason cited is that the benefits outweigh the drawbacks and yet again as Waverley do not have the required 5-year housing supply our village and our green fields have absolutely no protection.
We again have been advised that Waverley’s Local Plan has suffered yet another delay, meaning that Cranleigh and the surrounding villages remain the dumping ground for housing for the Entire Borough for the foreseeable future.
Building on the Berkeley’s site must commence within 2 years. we can’t wait to see what Thames Water are going to do with their sewage in that time as their system is already at capacity.
