Will Haslemere’s Red Court developers attempt to dupe ‘Your Waverley’ Planners in a few weeks? A plan so cunning Baldrick would be proud of them.
Change of land use for community allotments and orchards, with access off Scotland Lane, car and cycle parking spaces and associated landscaping. LAND BETWEEN THE LODGE AND 15 SCOTLAND LANE SCOTLAND LANE HASLEMERE
Red Court developers raise their ugly heads… again!
Is this another little wheeze? The same developer of Red Court is trying to get a change of use (doc attached) on another bit of the Red Court estate-
Because enough is never enough.
With planning consent for 50 homes in the bag and an appeal pending for another 111 – it makes sense to develop another piece of the Red Court Estate estate so that, in time, that too can become part of the development.
Redwood Limited is now applying for allotments with a new access road, associated parking, services, etc. No doubt, if they can get others to dig for a few years, it will help break the ground in readiness for when the developer sends in its JCBs. Kerching!
All allotments in Haslemere are owned and run by the town council. Still, these allotments will be owned by the developer… It seems to us cynical souls here at the Waverley Web that this could be a trojan horse for a few more executive homes on what should be protected land once a change of use for allotments is granted.
The land lies on the driveway down to the Grade 2 listed Red Court House and opposite the Grade 2 listed Red Court Lodge, which is totally unsuitable for allotments. From what we can tell on Waverley’s Planning Portal, the immediate neighbours haven’t objected. Have they signed away their right to object?’ if so, they must be shocked to see what’s happening on their doorstep.
Another cunning plan in the making?
