Is little old Alfold about to become big old Alfold?
As it comes under siege … again by developers?
Horsham based Thakeham Homes Planning Appeal takes place soon for up to 465 homes on Care Ashore’s Springbok Estate. Another 120 are already approved on the Loxwood Road behind the village school, now along comes another one….
WA/2017/0104 Outline (Access Only) for 45 units provision of public open space with SUDS attenuation at Land Adj to Brockhurst Farm, Alfold. By the way SUDS stands for Susstainable Urban Drainage – in other words a ditch. Doesn’t actually take into account the villages huge sewage/flooding issues!
This scheme uses an access off the Dunsfold Road -the very same road that leads into Dunsfold Park where 1,800 homes have just received planning approval.
All this proposed development – and lots more in the pipeline – Medland Nurseries;(Wyevale) Wildwood Golf Club; and of course not forgetting the former Piggeries in Rosemary Lane where Surrey County Council can build units for adults with leaning difficulties without the need for planning permission, despite local opposition! Ah well one rule for one, another for the lesser mortals – don’t you know!!!! All in a village with few services, no school, no GP surgery, and around 450 households!
