A light dusting of snow on the Hopfields, February 2015

24 March 2015
The meeting at Waverley concerning Taylor Wimpey's application to build on the Beavers Road Hopfields is scheduled to resume on Wednesday 1st April. This link will take you to the application on Waverley's web site. Perhaps the most significant development is that Taylor Wimpey have submitted an amendment to their plans which reserves the upper part of the Hopfield as Public Open Space. You can see the ammended plan either on the Waverley website or by clicking here.

As before, Stewart Edge and John Williamson will present our position at the meeting. NWFRA continue to believe that no building should take place on the Hopfields while so much uncertainty remains over the use of major brownfield sites such as Dunsfold, and while greenfield sites of lesser amenity value are available. We continue to be hampered in this position by the failure of Waverley Borough Councillors to ensure the production of an acceptable local plan.
