Planning application WA/2022/01433

Bewley Homes application for 140 homes to the west of Glorney Mead, backing onto Badshot Park.

The main points are:

It does not conform with the Waverley Local Plan.

It does not conform and is contrary to the policies within the Farnham Neighbourhood Plan.

The build density and proposed layout do not fulfill the requirements of the guidance contained in the National Design Guide.

The build density and mass of buildings, including 3 story structures, is a perfect example of a development unsuited to its surroundings and contrary to the Guidelines contained in the Farnham Design Statement.

Development cannot be justified by local need. Badshot Lea has already provided over 300 homes.

The site is the last area providing a nature corridor along the length of Lower Weybourne Lane from Weybourne Road to the centre of Badshot Lea.

Beacons lighting up the Farnham sky start Christmas festivities

Eight searchlights placed around Farnham and surrounding villages will literally bring rays of light to local residents at 5pm on 20th November, marking the beginning of local Christmas festivities. 

Following the popularity of last year’s beacons of light sky show, it is intended that eight beams of light will once again sweep across the sky from Badshot Lea, Weybourne, Upper Hale, Rowledge, Wrecclesham, The Bourne, Farnham Castle and Central Farnham until 8.30pm.

Wherever you live in Farnham or nearby villages, we hope you will be able to see at least one of our searchlights in the sky. Come out to your doorsteps to see them. 

Farnham Town Council has arranged for the beacons of light to represent the coming together of the Farnham community during 2021 and hopes for a brighter 2022. 

 During the shining of the beacons, the switching on of the Christmas lights in the town centre and surrounding neighbourhoods, will also take place.  

Information about seasonal events and activities taking place in Farnham is at www.farnham.gov.uk.   Open

The Village “Green” Tree Planting

Waverley Borough Council’s tree section has recently undertaken the removal of the 3 remaining poplars around The Green at Badshot Lea as well as removing the stumps of previously removed trees. As part of ongoing management of the site and the Council’s commitment to tackle climate change, we will be planting 17 replacement trees around the perimeter of the site. Please see the site plan below for the planting locations. The replacement trees, maple and lime, are indicated on the site plan as M and L. These works will be undertaken from March 29th, and are anticipated to take 4 days to complete (weather permitting).
