The Hall Hunter Partnership, which owns and operates Tuesley Farm, is seeking planning permission to extend its use of polytunnels under which it grows soft fruit.
The farm occupies land that stretches between the Hambledon parish boundary at Hydestile, to Tuesley Lane and the railway line at Milford. Its main crops are strawberries, raspberries and blueberries.
It first obtained approval for the use of polytunnels in 2008, when Waverley Borough Council agreed with HHP which fields could be used for polytunnels and the removal of hooped frames and plastic covering at the end of the growing season.
HHP is now requesting approval to retain some tunnels all year round in order to increase the growing season, to increase the use of tunnels elsewhere and to retain the hoops all year.
All members of the public can comment on the proposal and can do so until February 12. Details of the application, including maps, landscaping, traffic and environmental issues, can be found by following this link, where there is also the opportunity comment on-line.
Be warned: It can take a long time for the documents to open.
