Pub meeting this week decided the following – publish without delay  that Waverley has received planning application for 10 more houses in Amlets Lane! and ask people to look into it and write in their feelings about it. Planning Application WA/2019/1552 – Valid From 18/09/2019.  Outline application for erection of 10 dwellings with access.The developers are proposing an infill between the Carla Homes site and the existing properties facing Amlets Lane near the entrance to St Josephs School. Although not a large scheme it sets several precedents if approved.

  1. They are making a case for additional housing outside the settlement boundary indicated on the Neighbourhood Plan which still has to be given final approval.
  2. They suggest that the new Primary School may not be built on the Glebelands site – fields, therefore this will inhibit the building of housing on the existing Upper School site and free up housing allocation within the village on other sites.
  3. They also state that as Waverley has not yet taken up its full allocation of housing other sites around Cranleigh should be considered such as this one in Amlets Lane. If this principle is accepted it opens the gate for yet more applications in our area beyond those already approved.
  4. The proposed scheme further urbanizes an existing rural lane which is carrying more traffic than is appropriate for its width.                                                                                           Over to you
