The Government has backtracked (U - Turn) on these draconian proposals - please read the item from CPRE on this link.

COXBRIDGE FARM - WA/2019/0770 - UPDATE AS OF 26th February 2021

 As of today's date I have found out that updated documents had been uploaded to the Waverley Planning Site on the 22nd of February. These mitigate many of vehicular access problems to the site and would appear to be a major concession by the developers. They include traffic islands, extra pavements and a controlled pedestrian crossing. Regarding the denial of footpath access to the North of the development, we agree that this is sensible, as it will protect the rewilding taking part in that area. One of the things that must be addressed is ensuring that all site vehicles are parked onsite and not randomly abandoned on the verges in West Street.

PREVIOUS UPDATES 

 After our letter to The Farnham Herald in September 2020, a response was received from VIVID Homes by The Farnham Herald stating that "Thames Water have agreed to complete upgrade works on their sewerage systems to be able to accommoddate more homes to meet the needs of a larger site. These works will only be started once outline planning permission is granted which we expect to receive soon."

 There are issues with the vehicular access to the site - these are ongoing.

 There are many letters to Waverley objecting to this development.

 The update as of the 20th of August 2020 was that the owners of Coxbridge Farm have written to The Case Officer at Waverley Borough Council to advise them of their re-wilding of parts of the farm in order to mitigate the impact of the building of the 320 dwellings.

 There is no Decision Date on the website as of the 30th of December 2020

KNOWLE FARM - WA/2020/1323 - Status as at 15/1/2021 - Erection of stables and store buildings and regrading of land

The applicant wants to do this work, but has met with strong opposition on many fronts - Farnham Society, Surrey Wildlife Trust as well as the NWFRA, plus Old Park Lane Resident's Association and many local residents, even after submitting another revised set of plans in recent months....
