  1. VAWNT – Villages against Wisley New Town are campaigning against this development. Please join our mailing list

    We are also crowd funding to challenge this application

    There are many areas which WAG and VAWNT will question :
    Transport sustainability, effect on the LRN (Local Road Network), effect on the SRN (Strategic Road Network) i.e the A3 and M25, Station and train capacity, Educational provision, Medical provision, Water supply, Sewerage capacity, effects upon flora and fauna in the surrounding Special Protection Area ( SPA) and Site of Special Scentific Interest (SSSI), Footpaths, etc,etc
