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.

highway to Surrey County Council.

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
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.
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.
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 email@example.com if
you would like an invitation.
