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

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". 

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.

Guildford Borough Council [GBC] have released a Draft Supplementary Planning Document [SPD] for consultation, available from the Planning Policy Consultations section of the GBC web site. The SPD contains key information and guidance for householders and applicants on how to deliver well-designed residential extensions and alterations. 

The consultation opened on 4th May 2018 and will close 4th June 2018. There is an on-line Comments form that can be used for your response. Comments received after the close date will be discounted. 

Those concerned about the protection of the landscape consisting of the fields on the north slopes of the Hogs Back, submitted 30+ comments on planning application 18/P/0044 in an attempt to bring the strength of local feeling concerning the potential loss of agricultural land status to that of equestrian use, weakening its long-term planning protection, to the attention of Guildford Borough Council [GBC] case officers.  The 30+ comments logged on the GBC web pages for the application now provide Wanborough residents and their Parish Council a demonstration of the weight of wider local concern.
