In a step to ensure the protection of the borough, Waverley’s Full Council will be presented with a revised Cranleigh Conservation Area Appraisal (CAA) at its meeting on 19 July 2016.
The Cranleigh Conversation Area Appraisal was developed in consultation with local residents and key stakeholders and includes a management plan which sets out specific actions/projects aimed at preserving and enhancing the special character and appearance of Cranleigh.
The CAA outlines what is special about the area and, if adopted, will be used as a material consideration when examining future planning and listed building applications in the area.
Councillor Brian Adams, portfolio holder for planning, said: “The view of residents, expressed through the consultation, has provided the council with important local knowledge and information which has been used to update the CAA.
“It is important that local people take part in developing important documents like this to ensure their knowledge is captured for future generations and I would like to thank those residents and communities in Cranleigh who took part.
“I will be recommending the document to Full Council so that the appraisal becomes part of the councils supplementary planning guidance.”
The updated CAA includes amendments to the site boundaries to include an extension to Cranleigh Common, the southern side of the High Street and the Old Evangelical Church.
There are currently 43 Conservation Areas in the borough and the council is dedicated to keeping the areas preserved and where possible, enhanced, for future generations.
