The Surrey Branch of the Campaign to Protect Rural England [CPRE] is challenging Waverley Borough Council's adoption of its Local Plan: Part 1 Strategic Policies and Sites. CPRE has launched this challenge on the grounds that Planning Inspector Jonathan Bore (who will also examine Guildford’s Local Plan) “failed to take into account the environmental constraints and specifically the harm to the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty [AONB] and the London Metropolitan Green Belt”.

CPRE submitted its application for a Judicial Review to the High Court on March 29. Two other legal challenges to Waverley Borough Council’s adoption of the Local Plan were submitted on the same day, one of which is from the local action group Protect Our Waverley [POW].

Three sites for 295 homes and a new 2,000-pupil school at Effingham have been granted planning permission two years after the scheme was rejected by Guildford Borough Council. The school’s application to demolish its current site on Lower Road and rebuild on Effingham Lodge Farm was originally refused in March 2016. An appeal led to a public inquiry, held between May 16 and June 2 2017.

Waverly Borough Council's decision to approve 1,800 homes at Dunsfold Aerodrome in December 2016 was subsequently called in by the Secretary of State last March, taking the decision out of the hands of the local authority. Following a public enquiry last July 2017, plans for the site were approved by Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government Sajid Javid on Thursday, March 29 2018.

  • NAG submits response to Southern Pipeline consultation

    Normandy Action Group submitted its response to the Southern Pipeline corridor Option M & Q proposals as they affect land surrounding Flexford, Normandy and Wanborough. The response highlights that the consultants appear to have failed to take account of the local landscape designations of Area of Great Landscape Value [AGLV] and Site of Nature Conservation Importance [SNCI] in drawing the north and south boundaries of the Option M & Q corridor.

    Any pipeline laying towards the southern corridor boundary is likely to drive a wide swathe thorough the AGLV land that stretches north from the A31 down the northern slopes of the Hogs Back to Flexford Road; any pipeline laying towards the northern corridor boundary is likely to have a severe impact on the woodlands to the west of Normandy ward.

    The content of the response is available on the NAG web site

     
  • Housing proposal at Palm House Nurseries refused

    The planning application for six 2-bed houses [18/P00470] on the site of the former Palm House nurseries, that would result in the demolition of the existing horticultural building, has been refused.

    The officer report maintains that the "proposal would not constitute a sympathetic development but would result in the erosion of the agricultural and rural character of the site and surrounding area and would therefore fail to respect the established pattern of development within the area". 

     
  • Article 4 Direction compliance at Wanborough being tested

    Guildford Borough Council [GBC] has to decide whether to confirm the Article 4 Direction within 6 months of it first being served. A report is being drafted which, it is understood, is likely to propose continuation indefinitely. It will go before a planning committee meeting, probably at the end of June. The large number of representations sent by residents to Tim Dawes, Planning Development Manager at GBC has, it appears, ensured there will be a recommendation to continue.
