Stewart Edge for Castle Ward

Local Candidate who has already proven his effective representation of Farnham Castle Ward on Waverley Borough Council.

Stewart Edge has lived in Castle Ward for 28 years.

Stewart Edge

As North West Farnham Residents’ Association Planning expert, he has been for over 3 years in the centre of working to get the best for local residents in local planning:

  • Running a petition in 2013 against the Hopfields development.
  • Leading objections to the Hopfields development; but when this became inevitable helping secure the ‘Top field’ as a permanent open space.
  • Lobbying the Neighbourhood Plan team to retain the previous Landscape Protection in North West Farnham.
  • Pressing for the Waverley Local Plan to include 3400 houses at Dunsfold (as 80% of respondents to the consultation wanted).

"My two grown-up children went to Potters Gate and Heath End Schools, and I was Chairman of Governors at Heath End School for 4 years. I have in the past been a Waverley Councillor for over 8 years. Living locally, I have the competence, experience and diligence to be an effective local representative for Castle ward on Waverley. This is what you need on your local Council. I have been a Liberal Democrat throughout my life. Many issues on the Council will not be political and should not be political. However it is important for voters to know the underlying attitudes and opinions which any prospective Councillor might hold. Independent and Farnham Residents candidates are unknown quantities in this respect – for example two prominent ‘Independents’ who stood in local elections went on to join UKIP. Farnham Residents Party is a group formally registered as a political party and does not represent any Residents’ Associations."
