West End Reserve Site.

From West End Action Group

An imminent deadline is bearing down upon West End: 25 May, the date for Surrey Heath Borough Council (SHBC) to receive objections to Taylor Wimpey’s re-application to build 85 dwellings on land north of Beldam Bridge Road.

Taylor Wimpey originally applied to build the 85 houses with a large extent of open recreational land (known as Suitable Alternative Natural Greenspace, SANG) attached. Now they have re-submitted their application for the 85 houses without the open land attached. Objections can be sent to SHBC by 25 May, quoting Reference number 16/0323. Details are at www.surreyheath.gov.uk, and click on ‘Planning Applications Search’. Objections can be made online to development.control@surreyheath.gov.uk, or by post to Duncan Carty, Regulatory Services, SHBC, Surrey Heath House, Knoll Road, Camberley GU15 3HD.

Since this is a new application, objections to the previous application are not associated with it, so unfortunately those who wish to object need to object all over again. If you wish to object, please do so, to show the strength of opposition to this large development.

For more details visit the West End Action Group website, at weag.info. See especially the recent newsletter to supporters, dated 8 May.


Surrey Heath BC

Surrey Heath BC have gone out to consultation on a document entitled the “Site Allocation Plan” This document allocates several sites within the village for possible development.  Of particular note are the Reserve Sites i.e. land to the rear of Kings Road/ Beldam Bridge Road and Benner Lane.  WEVS has objected to development of all these sites.  The Council will publish in Mid 2014 a preferred Options Paper with a further consultation in late 2014.  The document will then be submitted to the Secretary of State in early 2015 with an Examination by and Inspector in Spring 2015 and adoption by the Council in Autumn 2105.  The Village Society will continue to make representations on behalf of the residents to oppose new development which we consider will harm the character and quality of its population”
