Farnham residents can look forward to a brighter, smarter end of town now that Waverley has given the final go ahead for the Brightwells Farnham Regeneration Scheme.
Following lengthy Executive and Council meetings on Tuesday 25 May, councillors gave their overwhelming support to changes to the Development Agreement and accepted the financial proposal from the developers Crest Nicholson.
During the debate Farnham councillors Martin Lear, Stephen Hill, Nabeel Nasir, Wyatt Ramsdale and Sam Pritchard put forward the views of many residents of Farnham who have expressed their excitement about the scheme and the opportunities it will bring to the town.
Councillor Julia Potts, Leader of Waverley Borough Council and ward member for Farnham Upper Hale, said: “It’s been a priority of the council for many years to regenerate this part of Farnham so it becomes a sustainable, attractive and joined up part of the town. Somewhere people want to live, work and socialise.
“Like myself, many of my fellow councillors joined the council because we wanted to make a difference to our towns and borough. I am delighted that we are in agreement that this regeneration can now finally proceed and deliver huge community and financial benefits to the people of Farnham, the borough and the whole of Waverley.”
