At the last night’s Waverley Borough Council Executive, parking for new developments was on the agenda: WBC Exec 11_Parking_Guidelines 01 10 2013.
In WBC’s consultation (WBC_12_Parking_Guidelines_annexe_1_10_2013), one Farnham resident wrote this:
What is the point of your asking residents of Farnham for our suggestions as to the parking needs of the town when I believe it is the case that some of our own Waverley councillors and the developers Crest Nicholson, hoping to push through a major redevelopment scheme now referred to by many locals as Woolmead 2, deliberately misled us and your Planning Department by pretending that one of the towns’ largest and longest established car parks, on the site of a long-demolished cinema, doesn’t actually exist? If the scheme goes ahead, this car park and the 80-odd spaces it currently provides will be lost. I trust that you will take this into consideration when preparing your guidelines. You might like to check that this is the case with councillor Carole King.
