LPP2: Site Allocations and Development Management Policies

Access and Servicing

5.23  Due to the historic character of Waverley's town centres, many established commercial premises do not have, and cannot be provided with, bespoke servicing facilities. Even where such facilities do exist, they are often inadequate for large vehicles. In consequence, servicing frequently takes place from the street, causing traffic congestion and hazardous conditions for pedestrians. Together, these factors have an adverse effect on the town centre environment.

5.24  The Council has identified areas in Godalming and Haslemere on the maps below where the use of rear access and servicing is appropriate. These are set out below. For the Haslemere Key Site (Policy DS 01), redevelopment proposals should take into account the potential to improve rear access and servicing.
