Waverley’s Local Plan is due to go before the Joint Overview and Scrutiny Committee at Waverley on Monday, 27th June, 2016 7.00 pm which includes a recommendation for 45% (4, 455 houses) of Waverley’s total housing allocation to be dumped in Cranleigh and the surrounding villages.
This puts 1,520 houses in Cranleigh alone, which is 15.4% of the total allocation for the borough, and an increase in the total housing in the village of a massive 34%.
Then there’s a further 26.4% allocated to Dunsfold Aerodrome, bringing the total allocation between just these two areas to 42% of the entire housing for Waverley.
Additional 335 houses are proposed in:
Alfold – 100 houses
Dunsfold (village) – 80 houses
Ewhurst – 65 houses
Bramley – 70 houses
Wonersh and Shamley Green – 20 houses
This will result in almost 11,000 more people in this part of the borough, with another 9,000 cars on the rural road network.
