Our objective is: "to ensure that all development contrib-
utes to local distinctiveness and character"
This is also a quote from the Surrey Design Guide!
SO HOW CAN WE HELP TO ACHIEVE IT?
Council elections are due next May, so let's tell our
Councillors what we think our priorities are
www.crara.org.uk
n
We want Garden Crabbing to be resist-

ed by Planners and by the Planning
Committee
n
We want to be sure that the Guildford
Development Framework - that's the
thing so many of us returned the ques-
tionnaire about, saying previously, de-
veloped

land"

should

not

include
residential gardens - incorporates the
safeguards written into the Residential
Design Guide and the Local Plan
n
We don't want any large new develop-
ments until the necessary infrastructure
is in place, and in particular...
n
We don’t want to lose our A&E, let
alone our hospital, when all the in-
creases in housing densities suggest
we may need an extra one!
n
We want more protection for trees
and greenery. Climate change is
projected to rise by 2 in 50 years
but locally the change from grassed
in areas to hard surfacing turns that
rise to 8 -10
o
n
We don't want our congested streets
to become treated as car parks for
over-sized flats or offices
n
We want to see Government hous-
ing gross targets challenged
* If you feel strongly about these or any other issues ask our Ward Councillors to in-
clude them in their Manifestos for the May elections
