Note pursuant to Section 100B(5) of the Local Government Act 1972

An annexe to this report contains exempt information by virtue of which the public is likely to be excluded during the item to which the report relates, as specified in Paragraph 3 of Part I of Schedule 12A to the Local Government Act 1972, viz:-

Information relating to the financial or business affairs of any particular person (including the authority holding that information).

Summary and purpose:

This item seeks authorisation for an easement of access to St Aubyns, Alfold Road, Cranleigh over Council-owned common land, as shown in the plan at Annexe 1.

Environmental implications:

There are no environmental implications.

Social / community implications:

There are no social/community implications.

E-Government implications:

There are no e-government implications.

Resource and legal implications:

The grant of an easement will provide Waverley with a capital sum. The applicant is to pay Waverley’s legal fees.

1. In 1996, the present owners created a vehicular access across Waverley-owned common land to their property. They were granted an annual licence for the access, which has been renewed each year. A plan is attached at Annexe 1.

2. The owners would now like to obtain a vehicular easement of access to the property to provide a permanent right of way. Terms and conditions for the easement are set out in the (Exempt) Annexe.

3. As the access has been in place for more than ten years without any problems, it would appear reasonable to grant the easement.


An easement of access (and services, if necessary) be granted to the owners of St Aubyns on the basis set out in the (Exempt) Annexe, other terms and conditions to be negotiated by the Property and Development Manager.

Background Papers (DoPD)
