‘Land South of Alfold Garden Centre, Horsham Rd, Alfold Crossways, Alfold’ Appeal decision.
COMING TO ALFOLD SOON ANOTHER 86 HOMES AND BUILDERS PORTALOOS TO LINE THE POCKETS OF LOCAL LANDOWNER ‘THE COVEY FAMILY.’
Government Inspector Peter Mark Sturgess followed in the footsteps of all his Inspector mates this week by overturning Waverley Planners’ refusal to build 86 new homes on agricultural land in the beleaguered little village of Alfold.
Another building site to join Sweeters Copse; Loxwood Road; Wyevale Garden Centre; Brockhurst; and the list just goes on and on ad nauseam in the village Waverley councillors dubbed “poor old Alfold.”
This latest decision will join others to impose approximately 439 new dwellings on the village. The Inspector recognised this was significantly above the 125 dwellings identified in Alfold’s housing allocation and more than the limited development Waverley’s Local Plan envisaged.
So that’s alright then Mr Sturgess – doubling the size of a village with no school, no decent bus service, shops or sewage and water supply is fine?
You can read his decision for yourself here – because even the Waverley Web is becoming sick and tired of posting this information. But hasn’t Alfold Parish Council something to answer for? It contributed to years of opposition at Dunsfold aerodrome and delaying the development of the largest brownfield site in the borough.
