Objection to Hewitt’s Industrial Estate – Outline Planning Application
Cranleigh Chamber of Commerce has consistently advocated that a balance between housing and employment land and commercial property must be achieved in Cranleigh.
The Hewitt’s proposal will result in the loss of yet more employment land in Cranleigh with the inevitability that it will become a commuter destination with increased congestion, a failed High Street, and it will lose its soul and identity as a great community in which to live and work.
Hewitts has been at the heart of Cranleigh’s economy in recent history and has seen many local companies grow from small businesses to become large employers.
There are numerous examples of firms that would have liked to stay but the landlords have effectively pushed them out.
