Protect our Waverley

The campaign's first task is to save the beautiful "fold" countryside on the Surrey/Sussex border from the development of a new town.

Dunsfold Airport Ltd applied in December 2015 for planning permission to build a

New Town on Dunsfold Park

First Phase of 1,800 dwellings with intention to increase to 3,400 dwellings
plus a large increase in the industrial space.
4,350/7,000 residents; 2,800/4,500 cars: huge increase in HGVs

What is proposed is not a village but a major urban style development with many four story buildings, with a density of up to an astonishing 100 dwellings per acre at the centre and two 100ft towers. The final planned size will have more than eight times the number of dwellings that are in Dunsfold. The affordable housing will be aimed at the needs of the 700 present employees and planned additional 2,000 future employees on the site who qualify and to house those on Waverley's Housing Needs Register. Affordable housing to meet Dunsfold's needs will be provided in Dunsfold village, not in Dunsfold New Town.

Have a look at the photo above and decide for yourself how much of the claimed "brownfield' site is actually brownfield land.

On 14 December 2016 the Joint Planning Committee of Waverley Borough Council resolved to grant planning permission for 1,800 dwellings. Before the planning permission can be granted WBC must agree with Dunsfold Airport Ltd a s. 106 agreement (a planning agreement) covering the developer's obligations to contribute to education, road improvements, etc.

Dunsfold Parish Council, jointly with ten other local parish councils, applied to Sajid Javid, the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, to call-in the planning application for him to decide it following a public inquiry by a planning inspector. The application has been called in and the public inquiry is currently scheduled to start on the 18th July 2017 in the main council chamber of Waverley Borough Council. The inquiry is likely to run for 3 weeks (12 sitting days at 4 days per week).
