LPP2: Site Allocations and Development Management Policies

Town Centres and Local Centres

5.10  Local Plan Part 1 seeks to strengthen the service centre role of Waverley's town centres and local centres by maintaining and enhancing their vitality and viability. The Spatial Strategy in Local Plan Part 1 reinforces the service centre roles of Waverley's main settlements by concentrating retail provision in the town centres of Farnham, Godalming, Haslemere and Cranleigh, and the local centres of Milford, Bramley and Farncombe. Local Plan Part 1 also contains a vision for Waverley's town centres, including elements that relate to specific centres, given that they all have different characteristics. The nature and amount of new development in each centre will be appropriate to its scale, character and role in the settlement and retail hierarchy.
