The Planning Inspectorate has rejected three Appeals against Enforcement Notices issued by Guildford Borough Council regarding unauthorised development in Wanborough Fields.

At its meeting on 14 July the Planning Committee of Guildford Borough Council (GBC) approved application 20/P/01148 for 16 'affordable' dwellings on the vacant plot of land between on the south side of Beech Lane adjacent to Hawthorn Close, despite the objections of Normandy Parish Council and numerous local residents.

The hearing by the Planning Inspector of an Appeal against the issuing of an Enforcement Notice regarding “Land at Plot D, Land to east of Wanborough Woods, Westwood Lane, Wanborough, Guildford GU3 2JN” has been postponed for a second time.

If anyone witnesses any importation of waste into any of the fields at Wanborough under threat, please report this to the Environment Agency incident hotline number – 0800 807060 - and quote the reference number 1920237. If you can provide any information such as times & registration plates that would be most helpful.

While we have understandably been focused on the damage being done to Wanborough Fields (see article), the current trend of selling off areas of agricultural land or woodland and parcelling them up into small plots for onward marketing is affecting other areas within our community.
