Cranleigh conservation area adopted by Waverley Borough Council
Following a public consultation, the Cranleigh Conservation Area Appraisal (CAA) was adopted by Waverley Borough Council at Full Council on 19 July 2016.
The document included several amendments to the boundary, including a significant extension to the south side of the High Street and the southern part of the common.
Cranleigh Chamber of Commerce has been working with Waverley Borough Council for the past couple of years as part of the steering committee drafting proposals for designating the south side of Cranleigh High Street as a Conservation Area.
We are grateful to the work of Jon Lucas, on behalf of Cranleigh Chamber of Commerce, in representing the interests of local businesses, monitoring and reporting back to our committee on the work of this steering group.
The adopted Cranleigh Conservation Area document is a material planning consideration for all applications within the conservation area.
A Conservation Area Appraisal identifies and explains the character of the conservation area.
It also contains a Management Plan section that sets out specific actions/projects aimed at preserving and enhancing the conservation area as well as managing change in the future.
It will also be used to prioritise environmental improvement projects within the CA.
We look forward to continuing our work with Waverley Borough Council to identify projects and priorities within the extended conservation area, as we continue to improve the High Street and surrounding areas for local retailers and business owners, as well as residents and visitors.
