While residents were focussing on their replies to the Guildford Local Plan, the architect retained by the owner of land opposite The Paddocks on the east side of Glaziers Lane and to the north of the North Downs railway line was submitting a planning application [16/P/01452]. The application is proposing 42 dwellings on land that currently falls outside the settlement boundary of Flexford and is "washed over" by the Green Belt.

The proposed 'inset' boundary in the proposed submission Guildford Local Plan continues to place this land beyond the Green Belt boundary. For such an application to succeed, it is likely there will be a requirement to prove "very special circumstances".

There was a public consultation for proposals for the site carried out in Normandy Village Hall in March 2015. The land was originally identified in the December 2012 Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment [SHLAA] document as Site 2010 but was withdrawn from the Regulation 18 draft Guildford Local Plan in July 2014.
