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.

  1. A staggering number of houses proposed just after both Environmental and Water organisations have come down in favor of no building until the sewage issues are resolved.

    If Cranleigh Waters are ‘full’ then how is it possible to expand sewage treatment needs by such a large factor?

    Will we see a corresponding report on this key health and environment issue, let alone the water and road infrastructure??

    1. It is in total another village the size of Cranleigh being built and Cranleigh Waters is meant to be able to cope will all the liquid effluent!
