May 2020 update from the South Woking Action Group
SWAG remains of the view that we should all be focusing on coping with the Corvid-19 lockdown and many more important issues but it appears the developers do not agree as:
- Mr Gold’s has recently visited the football ground to take aerial photographs using a drone in breach of the lockdown and;
- We understand they are intending to push their ill-conceived applications to the June planning committee
This is despite the longstanding concerns regarding major breaches of WBC planning policies; the flimsy financial justification; and the on-going reactive variations and changes (whether real or PR spin).
It seems to us that elements within WBC leadership continue to encourage, support and facilitate this proposed development ignoring residents’ legitimate concerns.
Sadly, as the developers and the supporting WBC facilitators are pushing on with their plans, SWAG has no option but to respond and ask residents to participate in a revival of the campaign of opposition.
Many thanks and stay safe everyone.
The SWAG Committee
