309. QUESTIONS FROM MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC

In accordance with Procedure Rule 10, Mrs A Thurston, a Farnham resident, asked a question on whether Waverley Borough Council would commission an independent traffic survey for Farnham in connection with the East Street Regeneration Scheme. The Chairman responded that a transport assessment would be undertaken by developers as part of any planning application submitted. Such assessment would then be considered by Surrey County Council as the transport authority, and by Waverley in its role as the local planning authority.

310. EAST STREET, FARNHAM REDEVELOPMENT SCHEME – CONDITIONAL CONTRACT (Agenda Item 4)

RESOLVED to RECOMMEND that

1. (a) the Council reaffirms its commitment to create a development which, in design, scale, massing, community facilities and transport links, is sympathetic and proportionate to the town and its residents and visitors;

(b) the Council pledges to continue to give consideration and engagement with residents a very high priority, in order fully to reflect all residents' views and respond to them;

2. the principal heads of terms be revised to take into account the revised premium and share of commercial overage agreed with Crest Nicholson Developments Ltd and J Sainsbury's Supermarkets Ltd as the developer and Crest Nicholson Operations Ltd as the Surety;

3. the Council proceed to put in place the Development Agreement and Headlease; and

4. the next stage in the process of agreeing a final scheme be endorsed which will be the developer submitting more detailed plans of the final form of the development, drawn up after negotiation between the Council's officers and Consultants and the developers, to the Council for approval as landlord.

The meeting concluded at 7.46 pm.
