The Friends of Cranleigh Village

  Dedicated to keeping our Village a vibrant and good place to live

Our Aims:

"Friends of Cranleigh Village" is a non-political local residents association, formed to help enhance and protect our village environment. 

As a group: we can be more informed, views more considered, our voice is louder and opinions will carry more weight.

Our main aims are to:

  • Ensure housing and commercial planning developments are of the right scale and design for our village and enliven it rather than detract

  • Support local trade, in particularly our High street shops, in order to maintain a viable and vibrant community

Although we will fight against proposed developments considered inappropriate, we are not a 'preservation society' - Cranleigh is an old village, but it is not a museum nor an antique and must not be unchanging and left to fall into decline. We therefore

actively encourage and support developments that are in keeping with the above aims.
