Haven’t we been told that there is a desperate need for affordable housing in Cranleigh?

Isn’t that the reasoning behind Waverley allowing developers to build on pristine green fields in order to provide affordable housing in Cranleigh?

Haven’t we been told that there are approximately 130 households currently waiting for rented affordable housing in Cranleigh on the Housing Needs Register?

So why is Waverley Borough Council selling off these two family homes, owned by them on the Elmbridge Road, when they say that meeting housing need is one of their principle objectives and the need for affordable rented housing is, they report, so great?

Please email Julia Potts (Leader of Waverley Borough Council) and ask her WHY Waverley are selling off these family homes and not offering them to local people on the Housing Needs Register.
