This Sunday, 11th March will see Crest Nicholson working in Farnham Town Centre’s Dogflud Car Park to remove further trees as they continue to prepare the site for the exciting Brightwells Regeneration scheme.

As work will focus on and around the Dogflud Way Car Park, there will be no access for parking on Sunday. No other car parks in Farnham will be affected and will operate as usual.

This is the next stage of the site preparation works, following on from tree removal along the A31 last week – work which was completed well ahead of time and with minimal disruption.

This first phase is an important part of the works being undertaken to prepare the site, with trees being removed now ahead of bird nesting season. A tree planting scheme forms part of the overall landscaping plan and will replace a significant number of high-grade trees across the site.

The works will be undertaken between 10am and 4pm to minimise disruption to local residents. Access to Farnham Leisure Centre will not be affected while the trees are being removed but Dogflud Car Park will be closed in its entirety. Additional parking is available at the rear of the Leisure Centre, and was created in advance of these works to increase capacity. There are several additional car parks in the Town Centre. Details can be found at:

Councillor Julia Potts, Leader of Waverley Borough Council said: “We have asked the developer Crest Nicholson to remove the trees in the entrance of Dogflud Car Park on Sunday as doing the work during weekdays would have caused significant disruption over a longer period of time. Although there will still be some disruption, we have tried to keep it to a minimum to mitigate as far as we can the impact on local businesses, residents and shoppers.”
