An Application has been submitted by Wisley Property Inv. Ltd to Guildford Borough Council to build 2100 homes on Wisley Airfield, as well as a school (not secondary), care home and shops. In addition, a 120-acre countryside area, football pitches and a 4G hockey pitch are envisaged. It would be the third largest settlement in the Guildford Borough area and about half the size of Cobham.
Wisley Airfield is on the opposite side of the A3 to RHS Wisley Gardens and is in the proximity of Downside, Ockham, Hatchford and Elm Corner and is in the Metropolitan Green Belt.
If this were approved, there would be a very adverse effect on all of the nearby areas including Cobham, Downside, Stoke d'Abernon and Oxshott.
If you wish to object, the closing date for objections is 31 March 2015 and the following are some of the reasons for objection you might like to consider:
