5. QUESTIONS FROM MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC

To answer the following questions received from members of the public in accordance with Procedure Rule 10:-

i. from Mr J Price of Farnham

“Waverley residents are acutely aware of the excellent historic environment they possess in the area. Farnham Town for example has many listed buildings, is understood to be one of the five prettiest towns in the South East and has one of the oldest civic societies in the country founded nearly 100 years ago. English Heritage, for some years has been encouraging Local Authorities to appoint an elected Member to act as a Historic Environment (HE) Champion to help enable HE resources to be better used and protected. English Heritage lists on its Web ‘HELM’ site over 200 authorities who have appointed Champions. Waverley is on this list. Could the Council state who is our Historic Environment Champion, publicise the appointment with an article in the Link, together with publicity on its website, and provide an annual report for the public on its involvement with the Historic Environment?”

ii. from Mr Murphy of Farnham

"Following recently released information it appears that Crest Nicholson Sainsbury's will walk away with at least 20,000,000 profit, whereas Waverley Borough Council will be lucky to break even. Not much of a deal for Waverley's residents.
iii. from Mrs A Thurston of Farnham

“It is stated in the brochure ‘East Street – getting it right for Farnham’, that parking will be in an undercroft car park taking 150 cars, and in a multi-storey car park with space for 235 cars. The existing Sainsbury’s car park, which is to remain, has 220 spaces. This gives a total of 605 spaces.
iv. from Mr D Wylde from Farnham

“Is the transfer of land from WBC to CNS a sale of freehold or sale on long leasehold; if so, what is the duration of the lease and what is the ground rent?”

v. from Mrs C Sandars of Farnham

“When we are told in the news and national press that there is now an over-supply of apartments in the South, please could you tell me how the Council plans to achieve a balanced mix of affordable housing for applicants from the Waverley Housing Waiting List who have asked to be housed in Farnham whilst the East Street development scheme still appears to offer nothing but apartments for both market and affordable provision? For instance, are there plans to provide affordable housing for families elsewhere in Farnham?”

vi. from Mr R Sandars of Farnham

“How many trees are there at present in the East Street Area of Opportunity, as outlined in the recent brochure ‘East Street - Getting it Right of Farnham’ and how many of these will be cut down in order to allow the latest redevelopment proposals to go ahead, and please may I have a separate figure for those additional trees that will have to come down to allow the extended site area to cross the River Wey and intrude into the Farnham bypass Area of Strategic Visual Importance?”
