ASHRA's Response - Crime


As with any new large development, it goes without saying that the levels of crime will increase proportionately. Ash and Tongham are already the paupers when it comes to availability and response from the police whenever there are incidents. In fact in 2012 Ash Police Station was closed because of lack of funding. If there is any kind of incident in Ash or Tongham it is necessary to get police response from Guildford, and this can take an inordinate amount of time, especially on a Friday night or at weekends when the police are stretched dealing with events in Guildford.

The NPPF states that plans should create safe and accessible environments where crime and disorder, and the fear of crime, do not undermine quality of life or community cohesion. We suggest that building another 400 homes between already existing towns will certainly create the opposite effect.
