Waverley Planning & Conservation Areas
Conservation areas are sites of historical or architectural importance. Building and redevelopment can be a more complex process due to more planning regulations and constraints applying within such areas. However our highly trained staff have the expertise to address more challenging planning and design issues. We achieve the aims of our clients both on an aesthetic and functional level whilst adhering to regulations set out by the local planning authority.

Planning in Waverley
At the time of the 2011 census, the population of Waverley was 121,600 and the number of households was 49,300. These figures showed an increase from ten years previously of 5.1% and 4.4%. With the growing population in Waverley and the current shortage of housing in the South East of England, there is a massive demand for housing developments such as new builds and extensions. The government has suggested that 8000 new homes should be built in Waverley by 2031. If you are looking at submitting a planning application for a new build, extension or other development, then Get Planning and Architecture has professional architects and planners who can assist you expertly through the process.
Waverley Planning Applications & Appeals
Get Planning and Architecture is keen to keep up-to-date with architectural and planning news in order to understand the needs of both the location and its residents.
Waverley is currently the site of extremely large development plans to provide more housing. The government wants about 8000 new homes built in the area by 2031. A recent controversial application was for the construction of 425 homes on greenfield sites near Cranleigh. Planning permission for the development was refused after a recommendation to the council from the Secretary of State for Communities and Government, Eric Pickles. Amongst concerns thought to have led to the refusal were that the homes would be at risk of flooding.
Another large housing development currently being underway in the Borough is a project to create new homes at Dunsfold Aerodrome.
