NoWoodhamNewTown Update - 22-Sep-17


The WBC planning officers have now finished recording and preparing their responses to ALL of the objection points raised. The planning officers have compiled their recommendations and produced their report for the Local Development Framework committee who are due to meet in early October. The LDF committee will report to the full council before the end of the year. Council will then decide which proposal goes forward to the next stage.

We have provided in the story below, an extract from the responses by McLaren, where they express a desire to retain their land for strategic employment use, and also extracts from New Zealand Golf Club along with Runnymede and Elmbridge Councils

All the responses can be found here: http://www.woking2027.info/allocations

Should you remain subscribed to this group, we will keep you fully informed of the progress of these proposals.



McLaren & New Zealand Golf Club say no!


McLaren wishes to confirm that, whilst the eastern site permission remains extant, they have no intention of implementing this specific development. However, this does not mean that McLaren will not require this land to accommodate their future sustainable growth. As such, McLaren does not support the safeguarding of this part of the Martyrs Lane site for housing. 

McLaren full response

New Zealand Golf Club Limited wishes to make its position crystal clear that the golf course is not for sale, is not available for development, and there is no prospect of this position changing in the foreseeable future.

New Zealand Golf Club full response

Runnymede District Council therefore objects to the proposed inclusion of the Martyrs Lane site as safeguarded land for future development, as its exclusion from the Green Belt is considered to result in a high likelihood of urban sprawl into the countryside and the potential for the perception of neighbouring towns to merge.

Runnymede District Council full response

Elmbridge Borough Council would like to raise our concern that cross=boundary issues have not been discussed prior to this consultation being brought forwards. For example this consultation does not appear to be supported by any additional transport assessments which identifies the potential impact of any proposed development on both the local and strategic road network.

Elmbridge Borough Council full response



How to report fly-tipping & your responsibilities for waste disposal

Posted by Horsell Residents' Association


Reporting fly-tipping

Fly tipping is a continuing issue on some roads in Horsell and on the edges of the village on Horsell Common. This week a fridge freezer was dumped on South Road actually on the highway. Please find details below on how to report fly tipping so that it is removed. 

1. If a road is blocked and is impassable, report fly-tipping on the highway to Surrey County Council.

2. If waste is tipped in other areas in Horsell, report fly-tipping to Woking Borough Council.

Householder responsibilities for waste disposal

Surrey County Council have issued a reminder of householder responsibilities when having waste removed. Your waste is your responsibility - make sure your builder won’t fly-tip it. Find out more about what you can do to stamp out fly-tipping in Surrey - Visit bit.ly/2cJpi3F

Horsell Prepared - Emergency Scenario Planning Workshop

An event by Horsell Prepared


Horsell Prepared will be holding an Emergency Scenario Planning Workshop on 16th November. It's intended for those actively interested in being involved in the organising of Horsell resilience efforts. If you would like to come along, please do contact us for an invitation.

At this Workshop, we will be led through an emergency scenario, and we will all participate to work out the best possible response which Horsell residents and volunteers could make to such an emergency. Horsell Prepared aims to work with - not in conflict with - the emergency services, utilities, and relevant local authorities.

This event is for 3 groups of people: 

  • Current and prospective members of the Horsell Prepared planning group, especially (but not exclusively) those with 'special skills' eg police or emergency services experience, or military experience.
  • Representatives from local Horsell groups and voluntary organisations (eg churches, schools, clubs, etc) which would like to be part of the resilience 'network'. If you run any such organisation in Horsell which could potentially mobilise volunteers or resources during a crisis, please come along to help us work out the best way to do this.
  • Representatives from relevant local authorities, utilities or emergency services who might call upon Horsell's voluntary resources and local residents for support in an emergency.

Although this event is invitation only, please contact Alan and the rest of the team at horsellprepared@gmail.com if you would like an invitation.

TBD, somewhere in Horsell
