Few residents attended to hear two NAG committee members speak against this planning application. Normandy Borough Councillor, David Bilbe, who had objected to a previous application concerning this site, before his election in May 2015, consequently was excluded from the Planning Committee deliberations and vote. However, he was permitted to speak under the rules for residents, being allowed 3 minutes to make his points.

Although the application was for permanent permission, the Officer Report recommended a grant of temporary permission for the six named individuals, their dependents and children, for a period of three years, expiring in December 2018.

In the current framing of guidance, the key issue that overrides all other considerations of substantial harm to the Green Belt is the best interests of any children involved and in this case 9 children were attributed among four of the families. After some discussion, the Planning Committee voted 15 in favour of the officer's recommendation, 2 against with 1 abstension.

A lengthy Officer Report (30 pages) weighed the various issues addressed in the current policies of Guildford Borough Council (2003 saved Local Plan), in particular H13 and RE2; the current National Planning Policy Framework [NPPF] and associated Planning Policy Guidance [NPPG]; the Planning Policy for Traveller Sites 2015 [PPTS]; the GBC Thames Basin Heaths Special Protection Area [TBHSPA] Avoidance Strategy 2009-2016; the West Surrey Gypsy & Traveller Accommodation Assessment (June 2012); and, finally, Article 8 of the European Convention of Human Rights and the Equalities Act 2010.

The Officer Report is attached as it is unavailable currently on the GBC planning web pages for this application.

The webcast of the meeting is available on the GBC web site for 6 months here
