Horsell Common Preservation Society are extremely concerned about the proposal to reserve this vast site adjacent to Horsell Common that could possibly accommodate 3,500 new homes. It seems totally inappropriate that Woking Borough Council should opt for this development over the proposed five sites already safeguarded in the Site Allocations Development Plan Document, published in 2015, which would spread development to smaller sites around the borough and further away from the Special Protection Area that forms the heart of Horsell Common.
Horsell Common Preservation Society owns part of the land within the proposed site and strongly objects to its inclusion in the scheme. Furthermore, HCPS objects overall to the proposal of a housing development at this location.
We have written a letter to the borough council objecting to the development and we urge our members to make their views known during the consultation period that ends on the 20th February.
