Surrey County Council, Waverley Borough Council and Farnham Town Council with the support of Jeremy Hunt MP are working together to tackle transport and infrastructure issues such as congestion and air quality in Farnham and its surrounding areas, including congestion and air quality. This is called the Farnham Infrastructure Programme, and the partners meet at the Farnham Board to drive the work forward.
The aim is to help Farnham become a better, more environmentally-friendly place for those who live, work, study in, or visit the town.Programme vision
In 2020 a vision document was written, and people in town were given a chance to comment on it. The vision identified the issues in the town and considered what the programme wanted to achieve. This was summarised in a vision statement for the programme: “Deliver an attractive, well-integrated, future-focused and high-quality infrastructure solution for Farnham that enables a connected and vibrant town, where people choose to live, work, study and spend their leisure time in sustainable ways.” You can read the vision document here .The Optimised Infrastructure Plan
Following a consultation in February and March 2021, an Optimised Infrastructure Plan (OIP) has now been agreed. It identifies a Farnham-wide programme of solutions to the issues highlighted in the vision. This will help to ensure that Farnham can become a better, more environmentally-friendly place for those who live, work, study in, or visit the town. You can read the final OIP here .Feedback at Local Liaison Forums
Local Liaison Forums, held on Zoom to allow participation, provide an opportunity to share ideas and give feedback on the proposed infrastructure changes. If you live, work, study or travel around Farnham, get involved to find out more and ask questions about the programme.
There are forum meetings during the OIP consultation in March. More information is available on the Farnham Town Council website .
