Press Release – 8th July, 2017

July 8, 2017

From POW Campaign and the Joint Parishes.

Following the conclusion of the Examination in Public (EiP) of Waverley’s emerging Local Plan, POW and the Joint Parishes are looking forward to the Public Inquiry on the planning application for Dunsfold Park starting on July 18th.

The Inquiry will provide the opportunity for a robust and detailed examination of the application for 1,800 houses and extensive additional industrial space. The EiP Inspector, Mr Bore, endorsed the inclusion of Dunsfold Park in the Local Plan because he saw no viable alternative way to provide for the increase in house building demanded. He did not assess the details of the proposal. He also pointed out that the Inspector at the Public Inquiry and the Secretary of State could reach different views about the acceptability of the development.

We remain confident that the planning application will be rejected.
