Proposed deregistration of common land by Waverley Borough Council - Wey Hill (Fairground) Car Park, Case Reference: 3205089

Waverley Borough Council has submitted a Section 16 application to the Planning Inspectorate to deregister the Wey Hill (Fairground) car park.* 

In its Local Plan Part 2: Site Allocations and Development Management Policies**, Waverley Borough Council states it is seeking to deregister this site as common land and temporarily resurface it, with a mixed-use redevelopment of the site, including around 50 flats, likely to come forward later in the plan. The council makes no specific mention of the 50 flats in its Section 16 application, dated 14th June 2018, to deregister the land.

We, the signatories of this petition, believe the loss of this precious common land and community asset in the heart of Wey Hill in Haslemere is not in the best interests of the neighbourhood because it can currently be used for the benefit of the community, including for parking, whereas, if it is deregistered, it can be used for any purpose without being in the interests of the neighbourhood.
