The intention of this page is to direct you to a list of planning applications relevant to our area of Farnham, so that you are aware of them before they are discussed by Farnham Town Council and Waverley Planning.
POTENTIAL PLANNING PROPOSAL FOR FIELDS ABOVE UCA - UPDATED 13th NOVEMBER 2023
Waverley Planning References WA/2023/01467 and SC/2023/01442
THESE ARE THE TWO WAVERLEY PLANNING REFERENCES THAT APPLY TO THIS POTENTIAL DEVELOPMENT.
WE UNDERSTAND THAT THIS APPLICATION WILL BE DISCUSSED AT THE NEXT COUNCIL PLANNING MEETING IN DECEMBER - ACCORDING TO ONE OF THE COUNCILLORS WHO ATTENDED OUR AGM ON THE 19TH OF OCTOBER.
THE OLD PARK LANE RESIDENTS ASSOCIATION (OPLRA), TOGETHER WITH THE ABBEY VIEW RESIDENTS ASSOCIATION (AVRA) HAVE JOINED WITH THE NWFRA ON A CONCERTED EFFORT TO STOP THIS APPLICATION. ALL THREE ASSOCIATIONS HAVE EMAILED JEREMY HUNT WITH COMPREHENSIVE OBJECTIONS TO THIS PLAN.
WE HAVE TODAY (13TH NOVEMBER) EMAILED HIM ASKING FOR ANY FEEDBACK THAT HE HAS RECEIVED FROM SURREY TRANSPORT AND WAVERLEY PLANNING.
GLEESON STATEGIC LAND HAS SENT OUT A PUBLIC CONSULATION DOCUMENT ASKING FOR THE PUBLIC TO RESPOND BY THE 23rd OF MAY - THIS IS PRIOR TO THEM APPLYING FOR OUTLINE PLANNING PERMISSION TO WAVERLEY PLANNING. NWFRA ARE ADVISING THAT EVERYONE SHOULD OBJECT OF THE GROUNDS THAT IT FALLS OUTSIDE OF THE FARNHAM TOWN BUILT UP AREA BOUNDARY.

PREVIOUSLY - Towards the end of 2018 a company called Gleeson Strategic Land was added to the title deeds of land part owned and farmed by Mr. Harvey Rivers, as well as the remaining UCA fields that are not part of the Abbey View development. There has been surveying activity on this land and surrounding areas, as well as an approach to third party to sell a strip of land to enable a road entrance into Castle Hill (which the owner refused to sell) and a request to survey ponds just north of the UCA Fields. All this activity could be the precursor to a planning application being made. Perhaps the only saving grace is that it falls outside of the Farnham Town Boundary and (should) be protected under the Neighbourhood Plan we think. We will continue to monitor the situation, but if anyone has any more input, we would love to hear from you.
