Normandy residents attended the public enquiry at GBC Millmead, Tuesday 2 August 2016, along with Normandy's Guildford Borough Councillor, David Bilbe, into the appeal for 78 houses and retail space at North Wyke Farm [APP/Y3615/W/16/3146286]. NPPF paragraphs 79 and 87 held sway [see decision], the applicant providing insufficient evidence that the benefits of the development would prove the "very special circumstances" required for such a development in the Green Belt at this location.

Residents repeated observations made at the previous appeal on the failure of local food and drink retail businesses over the last 20 years, illustrating how unlikely it would be that the proposals offered for new retail space would be commercially viable.

More importantly, the GBC planning team agreed with the inspector that the settlement of Normandy exhibits a shallow linear form through which surrounding countryside is visible, supporting comments made in the course of the previous decision that Normandy supports the openness of the Green Belt. This was a key point in the inspector's decision report, used to highlight the inappropriate form of the proposed development of 78 houses, leading to refusal. 

The GBC planning team also confirmed that this land was not proposed for removal from the Green Belt in the emerging local plan.
