What you can do to prevent the new development?
The original Springbok Estate planning application was refused but goes to appeal in July 2017. Meanwhile another hybrid application has been launched on top of the original one, and this is now active. WA/2017/0360. We urge you to click the box and comment as soon as possible. Send your objections NOW to Waverley Borough Council. Encourage your friends and neighbours to do so as well. The greater the number, the more the influence.
On-line: by completing the form on Waverley’s website by clicking here:

Possible reasons for objecting
You should set out the reasons which concern you, preferably in your own language rather than simply copying the following suggestions word for word.
Inadequate road infrastructure. The existing road structure cannot cope with the additional traffic that will be generated. [Add details of any roads that you use which you consider will be particularly adversely affected – such as the Bramley bottleneck and local rat runs].
Situation. The site is relatively remote and rural and almost entirely surrounded by an Area of Great Landscape Value as well as being on the edge of the Green Belt. It has Sites of Special Scientific Interest and other ecologically sensitive areas around it.
Services. The resultant increase in the population will impose an excessive additional burden on local services such as hospitals, schools and railways.
