The Council has delayed the ratification of the Hoe Valley Neighbourhood Forum for the reasons outlined in the letter below:



This is something of a puzzle to us as:

  • All papers submitted conformed to the required format and had already been QA’d by the Council.
  • The consultation ran correctly as required from 4 Feb – 18 Mar 21.
  • No objections had been raised by the community – in fact only letters of support were received.

The fact that certain planning & legal matters in relation to the site allocations and proposed development at Woking Football ground were being rushed through was of course purely coincidental.
