Because the Local Plan removes the settlements of Normandy, Flexford, and Walden Cottages from the Green Belt (they are now ‘inset’ rather than ‘washed over’) we can expect to see more proposals for ‘limited infilling’ within the settlement area.

One such is application 19/P/01868 for the erection of two 4 bed houses to the rear of ‘Bramcombe’, Flexford Road. This attracted a lot of public comments on the GBC website, most objecting but also some strongly in support. The application went to the GBC Planning Committee on 29 January, where it was turned down; both the Officer’s Report and the Decision Notice are available for viewing on the GBC planning pages.
