Cranleigh Society News 9 Feb 2019
Firstly – Social – join us at The Three Horseshoes pub on Monday 11th Feb, any time from 6.30pm – let’s share a drink, chat and action plans too. There is always an option to buy meals or snacks too.
Next – Cranleigh Society asks – What would YOU say and want to know from Waverley if you were sitting in a room with their undivided attention? Our next meeting is coming up.
Soon – What would YOU ask MP Anne Milton when she next comes to Cranleigh? Flood forum – Friday 22nd March 10.30am Band Room – VERY Important YOU attend. We will provide information sheets and hope to sort out the lack of microphones by then for the Band Room. Let us have your worries and questions please.
Surrey County Council consultations – so here’s the thing – our democracy requires many things such as hard working officers working for the community and elected Councillors, such as consultations – when they get to points where they can see a large impact on communities – and they have to count them and take their views into account. So if we don’t write in etc. we don’t count!!! Please go onto the Website for Surrey County Council consultations and read what they have put up. BTW – if ever you can’t – please go to the library and ask for help with the computers there – it’s your right and this too could be taken away if not used enough.
Cranleigh Parish Council – all public are welcome to their meetings – and there is a moment in those meetings when the councillors are free to discuss matters more openly when the public are excluded – reasonably. Local planning applications are considered by members of the Planning Committee on a three weekly basis. The Planning List of planning applications to be considered by the Committee is displayed at the Council Offices. Look at their web site – meetings for dates – they change!
There are twelve Parish Councillors who take an active part in village life and who are elected to represent the community. The Council has adopted a Business Plan for the period 2019 – 2023 which can be viewed here. CPC looks after many amenities – Snoxhall fields, village Hall, Cemetery, Allotments, and also lists information about ROAD CLOSURES, REPORTING FLOODING, DEFIBRILLATOR, FIRST RESPONDERS.
Cranleigh Neighbourhood Plan is up for reading and commenting up – please see their web site – click the top tab Neighbourhood plan, then Draft, then Regulation 14 consultation!

News! January 2019
NEXT CRANLEIGH SOCIETY SOCIAL – 11TH FEB from 6.30, Three Horseshoes. do join in any time –
Cranleigh Parish Council – have agreed some aspects of the planning application by Cranleigh School (Private) – we thought the land opposite Nottcuts was protected by the Neighbourhood Plan? Comments Please. They are not agreeing with the housing opposite Nottcuts apparently. phew!
Surrey County Council have allowed Farnham to keep their Recycling centre (tip). Cranleigh’s Recycling centre will remain open for recycling for now – They will no longer accept ‘black bag’ waste, the waste that goes to landfill. This is how they intend to make enough savings to continue to keep Cranleigh recycling centre open. This will be monitored over the next 6 months but they were confident that enough saving could be made to keep our centre open.
Waverley and Cranleigh society – meetings to continue – what are you most concerned about at the moment?
FLOOD FORUM with Anne Milton MP – next one is soon – so please tell us if you have knowledge of sewerage coming up where it shouldn’t or flooding or other water issues.
RIVER FLY Lavae counts – we have had some training so help is always welcome. Thank you for offering, we will be in touch soon.
RIVER TIDYING – we need to find out more about this – we have been told that fallen branches etc. may be good in certain areas and NOT to remove them please.
RIVER QUALITY – our team will contact those who have shown interest soon, thank you
Cranleigh Society Social and chats
We meet on the second Monday in each month, at the Three Horseshoes pub, join in any time, from 6.30 pm. Some people have a meal or snack as well as drinks. We talk over what we know, what is bothering us and what actions can be taken.
This week we enjoyed meeting some members and visitors and they offered some helpful advice. A planning issue was raised and we hope we can help.
We want to chat with you and explain what we do know and talk about all the topics you would like – housing, Flood Forum, Rivers, Thames Water, further planning applications, ancient trees, wildlife habitats and so on.
Come and go as you please – this is sociable time but discussions around the issues that worry us all are more than welcome. Discussions too about what has been done, and what can be done in the future will always be part of the point of meeting up.
If you intend to buy a meal you can let landlord Peter know in advance.
We look forward to seeing you Feb and March 11th and so on
with kind regards
From Sue and the committee
