Saturday, Aug 13, 1-4pm – St George’s
Saturday, Aug 20, 9am-noon – St Mark’s
Come and see the plans for major changes to Farnham Town Centre and the potential impacts on other parts of Farnham, including North Farnham. There will be an exhibition to explain the changes at St George’s Church, Badshot Lea, this Saturday, August 13th, 1-4pm; and at St Mark’s, Upper Hale, on Saturday, August 20th, 9am-12 noon.
The changes are proposed as part of the Farnham Infrastructure Programme, a partnership between Surrey County Council, Waverley Borough Council, Farnham Town Council and Jeremy Hunt MP and the plan is to “reduce carbon emissions, improve the connections between the town’s communities, support economic vitality and encourage growth, and improve life in Farnham with cleaner air, healthier lifestyles and less dominance of traffic on communities”. However, there are questions over how this is done and what impact it will have on other parts of Farnham so a consultation is underway.
As North Farnham is likely to be affected if the proposals go ahead, residents are being encouraged to come to the exhibitions and ask questions, as well as complete the consultation. This is online here and there will be hard copies available at the exhibitions. There are also hard copies available at the Farnham Town Council offices on South Street.
The consultation it runs until September 11th, but with an extension into early October to allow time to go into the schools at the start of next term.
