Waverley Borough Council is consulting on a number of potential housing scenarios and other issues to help draw up a new Local Plan. This consultation will help us to decide where future developments should go. It will run for just over six weeks from the 3rd September until 17th October 2014.


Waverley currently has more than 50,000 homes but evidence shows that we may need to find space for around 8,500 more homes between 2013 and 2031. This means that almost all the towns and villages in Waverley will have to find space for a least some new housing.


If you are a resident or a business in the Borough, you will receive a special edition of the Council’s publication ‘Making Waves’, which will provide some information about the potential scenarios for where housing could be located as well as information on some of the other issues to be covered by the Local Plan. This summary leaflet clearly cannot cover the whole subject matterand so we would encourage you to read the Council’s main document explaining this: “Consultation on Potential Housing Scenarios and Other Issues for the Waverley Local Plan”. 


A copy of this document and the summary are available to download once you enter the consultation below.


These and all the other supporting documents and evidence referred to in the document, can be found on the Council’s website. Please be aware that some are very large and may take a while to download. Appendices are often coloured photographs or maps.  Copies will also available to see at the Council’s offices at Godalming and Farnham, and at Farnham, Godalming, Cranleigh, Haslemere and Bramley libraries.


Making your comments online

When entering the consultation below, you will be prompted to complete the questionnaire, which is a mainly a series of questions asking you to make choices and to rank the scenarios. There are other questions which ask you give your views and comments. If you run out of space, simple instructions will help you to attach a document to this part of the questionnaire. Please remember to save your response. You can save your answers as a draft and return to it later. You can also download the summary document as a pdf to read alongside the questionnaire. 


All responses, whether made online or by submitting a paper copy of the feedback form will be publicly available and cannot be treated as confidential (identifiable by name and organisation only).  Please note that any other personal information provided will be used by Waverley Borough Council to monitor responses and to notify you of other policy consultations, and will not be used for any other purposes. All responses will be checked and any considered to be inappropriate will be removed.


Talk to us

In addition to the information available online and in the libraries, there will be a mobile exhibition trailer in the four main settlements and some of the villages. Please see the locations and venues for these at www.waverley.gov.uk/newlocalplan
