Major Planning Applications
Around East Horsley and neighbouring Parishes, there are several major planning applications before Guildford Borough Council (GBC) and Surrey County Council (SCC). Although the "out of Parish" applications are not put before the East Horsley Parish Planning Committee for consultation, the village and Parish Council has the opportunity to put its views to the Borough and County Councils.
Former Wisley Airfield
This site has been purchased by Taylor Wimpey (TW) and their plans for a village complex are at public conslutation stage.
Members of the community are invited to attend Taylor Wimpey’s online community consultation events for the former Wisley Airfield. Go to www.wisleyairfield.com/engagement
Taylor Wimpey has submitted a new hybrid planning application for the proposed new settlement on the site of the former Wisley Airfield in Ockham.
GBC planning reference number 22/P/01175.
Deadline for submitting comments is 7 October 2022.
Residents should be aware this application has only been submitted by Taylor Wimpey. The other two developers, Hallam Land and CBRE, whilst co-operating with Taylor Wimpey, are not a party to this application. Accordingly, the headline number of dwellings proposed is 1,730 homes. The other two developers will come forward later to propose a further 270 homes in the southern section of the site, taking the total to over 2,000 new homes as set out in GBC's Local Plan Policy A35.
East Horsley and West Horsley Parish Councils have submitted a joint objection to this application which can be viewed here:
