They will also create a QR code so that people can go online, see the proposals and submit their comments.  Also look out for flyers around the village soon.

Thanks to those who have responded so far – please encourage others to join in as soon as they can and to go along having had a good think about it all and respond to the consultation.

SCC has engaged a company to work with our councillors and paid officers and have come up with the plans. It has taken a long time and we need to really make them understand what we need and support. When the last tranche of dosh was spent on the High Street we ended up with lovely Fountain Square but less width opposite Knowle Lane.

Get involved to plan Waverley’s cycle tracks, walkways and mobility access routes upgrades

GET INVOLVED

Surrey County Council is preparing to develop a Local Cycle and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) for Waverley Borough.  This plan would allow Surrey to bid to the Department for Transport for Active Travel Funding  to create and improve the infrastructure for cycling, walking and mobility access across our borough.   The Plan would also be used by Waverley Borough Council when assessing planning applications.

Before Surrey commissions the development of this Local Cycle and Walking Infrastructure Plan, they are  reaching out to local communities to tap into the local knowledge and expertise of organisations like the Cranleigh Civic Society.

What is your opinion? How strongly do you feel?  Waverley Officers really need help with their work to put the case for Waverley, and therefore Cranleigh.

Cranleigh Chamber of Commerce propose that the Downs Link should be made up to a standard that makes it safe for wheelchairs as well as making it more likely that cyclists will use it instead of their cars.

The Downs Link – the old railway line – is an adopted right of way for pedestrians, cyclists and horses.  Surrey County Council have previously stated that there aren’t enough people who would want to commute from Cranleigh to Guildford to warrant paying for the railway to come back, and even if that changes, the right of way must be maintained for pedestrians, cyclists and horses.

We look forward to hearing from you – comment below, email in reply, or  write to Cranleigh
