Parish Council To Consider Orchard Farm Planning Proposal

Hambledon Parish Council will consider its response to the new application by the English Rural Housing Association to build seven affordable and two market-price homes at Orchard Farm, Wormley Lane, at its monthly meeting tomorrow evening (Tuesday April 2nd, 2019).

The meeting starts at 8pm at Hambledon Village Hall. The application will be discussed at the planning section of the meeting. Anyone who wishes to raise issues about the application, or any other matter, is invited to do so at the start of the meeting when 15 minutes are set aside for questions from members of the public. The response will be sent to Waverley Borough Council, which will determine the outcome of the application.

The council has prepared a draft response and is making it available in advance of the meeting. It, together with two accompanying letters, can be found on the Legislation & Planning Parish Council section of this website. The agenda for the April meeting is also available in the Parish Council section together with all previous agenda and minutes.

Details of the planning application can be found in an earlier new item on this website or by visiting Waverley Borough Council at:

On the face of it, the development now looks much reduced compared to the first proposal submitted and rejected. More than half the houses originally proposed on less than half the land. And the adjoining land remains available for future development! More than likely, we will see more houses built than originally proposed, and served in two homeopathic doses rather than in one proposal. This should be emphatically rejected by the Parish Council.
