Guildford Borough Councillors met on Tue 24th May 2016 to agree the draft Guildford Local Plan.
It was hoped that the amendment to remove the former Wisley Airfield site (also know as Three Farms Meadows) from the local plan would be agreed but unfortunately, only 11 councillors voted for its removal and 33 councillors voted for it to remain. Other amendments were also discussed and voted on, with the final draft local plan being agreed and put forward for consultation.

There will now be a consultation period of six weeks starting on the 6th June 2016.
We are pleased to report that the rural business centre at Norwood Farm, Old Common Road, Cobham, Surrey KT11 1BS (application no. 2015/4567) has been refused by Elmbridge Borough Council.
Seven reasons were given for refusal and the report dated 20 May 2016, can be found on the Elmbridge Planning website under planning application 2015/4567.
There was a recent unanimous decision by Guildford Borough Council to refuse planning permission for 2068 homes plus associated infrastructure and highways changes at Three Farm Meadows, formerly Wisley Airfield. However, despite the application being turned down, the site remains in their draft Local Plan as a strategic site.
On 24th May 2016 at 7pm there is an important Councillors Meeting at Guildford Borough Council to agree their Local Plan. This will be open to the public. Wisley Action Group (WAG) is leading the fight for the removal of the site from the Local Plan and for saving the Green Belt.
The action group is currently obtaining the written opinion of a specialist planning QC to present to each individual Councillor. We must all vigorously fight for the removal of the site from their Local Plan, in order to save the Green Belt. If over 2,000 houses are built on our borders, it would have a serious impact on our community (thank you again to all who wrote opposing the application). It is also important to point out that the Applicant still has time to appeal to the inspector, and with the possible removal of the site from the Green Belt this could act in their favour.
We urge you to show your opposition to development of the Three Meadows site by attending the meeting, which is at the Guildford Borough Council Offices, Millmead, Guildford. GU21 4BB. Numbers attending in person really do count to show the strength of feeling on this.
We are pleased that Guildford Borough Council refused the Three Farms Meadows (former Wisley Airfield) new town development Planning Application (Ref 15/P/00012) on the 6th April 2016. Three Farm Meadows is safe for now but it's likely that the developer will appeal or submit a further application.
Well done to all the local organisations who worked so hard to oppose this totally inapproriate planning application.
