The council has expressed strong opposition to the two potential routes that pass through the borough, particularly the route that runs through Farnham town centre, on the following grounds:
- Disruption to the town centre during the construction phase, particularly in combination with other planned developments in the town centre such as at the Woolmead and Brightwells on East Street.
- Impact on the Conservation Area of Farnham, particularly Castle Street
- Potential impact on archaeological remains
The council’s concerns will be explored in more detail with ESSO at a planned meeting and during the later stages of the consultation.
