Planning Report May 2015

Police station site (742x800)



11 MAY 2015


The Planning Committee has met on two occasions since the last Executive Committee with the following matters discussed and acted upon:-


Application List


We have objected to the following:-


White Beam, 79a Middle Bourne Lane, 2x 5 bed houses in place of one

59 Boundstone Road, 2 or 3 dwellings in place of one


We are preparing objections for the following:-


Brethren’s Meeting Room, West Street, 71 bed care home

David Lloyd Centre. Double tennis court dome covering

Bourne Club, Double tennis court dome covering

The Coach House, Leigh Cottage, additional house in narrow lane

We are also, in conjunction with SOFRA and The Town Council, planning to make a strong objection to the very large greenfield application at Compton Fields, Waverley Lane for 157 dwellings.


Bishops Steps Wall

A final design has been prepared by Mark Westcott and Mike Clements which should result in the removal of the recently built wall and the erection of a low wall and post and rail fencing to match the other side and with lighting provided by more street lights in Castle Street. We have been informed funding is in place and I thought this was a conclusion to the saga but I have just heard FCAMP and Farnham Castle Operations will be proposing an alternative design for consideration by the Church Commissioners.


Baker Oates Stables, Gardeners Hill Road.

The refused application for 43 dwellings is going to appeal.
