Waverley Borough Council wants to hear your views on the draft Cranleigh Conservation Area Appraisal (CAA).

The council is holding a consultation to get residents’ and local businesses’ views on the draft CAA, which assesses the character and condition of the Conservation Area and contains a Management Plan identifying potential enhancement schemes.  The document has evolved with the help of representatives from Cranleigh Parish Council, Surrey County Council, Chamber of Commerce, Cranleigh History Society, Cranleigh Neighbourhood Plan Group and the Cranleigh Society.
