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

i. from Mrs A Cooper of Farnham

“The Farnham Theatre Association have just received a professional and independent analysis of the results of their survey conducted in August of Farnham town centre traders. This concerns the likely effects on trade from new entertainment facilities in the East Street scheme. In the light of the advice given by the South East Tourist Board, in the ANCER SPA report, as published in the Executive Papers of 6 February this year, that Waverley will need to prioritise and improve tourism provision, would the Council give this survey and its results early serious consideration?”

ii. from Mr D Cooper of Farnham

“Will the Leader of the Council please state whether or not members of the Council have been advised, either orally or in writing, that they should not seriously address or consider arguments against the Council's policies on any particular issue, for example - the lack of non-commercial community facilities in the current East Street Masterplan - and how can they scrutinise and question the pros and cons of such matters without the opportunity to debate these in public before the planning process has begun?”
