  • WA/2022/00906 Conflicts and Contradicts the Built-Up Area Boundary

  • Not Compliant with the Farnham Neighbourhood Plan

  • Paragraph 15 sets out that planning should be genuinely plan-led and amongst other matters should…

  • provide a platform for local people to shape their surroundings. The FNP sought to do this.

  • Therefore, granting planning permission for a development that would so clearly conflict with the strategy within a relatively recently made neighbourhood plan (FNP) undermines the entire neighbourhood planning process

  • Not compliant with the Waverley Local Plan

  • Conflicts with the Waverley FRA and the Guildford flood directive

  • 30 Frensham Vale Site is not included o the Waverly list available sites

  • No Exception Test carried out as required by the Environment Agency

  • No Sequential Test Carried out as Requested by the Environment Agency

  • No agreement or consultation with the Local Residents (see Gove MP statements) and Paragraph 15 note above

  • The Housing Delivery Test 2021 published 14th January 2022 states the housing delivery rate for the Borough is 109% - more housing is not needed and by definition is not Sustainable.

  • The Deeds of the Property do not allow these houses to be built on this site and are legally prohibited

  • Making the 5th and 6thPlot ‘A and B’ is an attempt at deceitfulness

  • The site is designated by the Environment Agency as Flood Zone 3b There is NO DRY ESCAPE for any resident via the only EXIT to Frensham Vale.This conflicts with the Guidance on Flooding issued by the EA and other advisory bodies.

  • The Drag distance for Bins conflicts with health regulations.
