The Neighbourhood Plan will:

  • Provide 5 years protection against inappropriate speculative development in the area.
  • Increase developers’ contributions (Community Infrastructure Levy) on applications considered viable (approved) in our area, which will be spent on local projects.

 The Neighbourhood Plan includes policies on:

  • Protection of green spaces.
  • Housing and Design – promoting high quality houses that integrate well with their surroundings, accessible to those with disabilities, energy efficient and with reasonably sized gardens and/or outdoor space/balconies.
  • The Environment – protection of our natural environment by retaining the most versatile agricultural land, preservation and enhancement including use of wildlife corridors, planting and retaining hedges and trees, installing sensitive lighting schemes and safeguarding air and water quality.
  • Infrastructure – minimising risk of flooding, ensuring adequate water and sewerage infrastructure, ensuring developments are well connected to Cranleigh using sustainable modes of transport.
  • The Economy – protection against loss of commercial units safeguarding jobs (unless it can be proved that current use is unviable), supporting diversification of farm buildings where appropriate.

 The Neighbourhood Plan will be a formal planning document which will sit alongside Waverley’s Local Plan adding a local dimension. It will be used to determine planning applications within Cranleigh Parish and this is what makes it so important for our village.

PLEASE NOTE, THIS PLAN IS NOT LINKED IN ANY WAY TO THE SURREY COUNTY COUNCIL
