Taylor Wimpey, one of the UK’s largest housebuilders, now own Wisley Airfield and have commenced consultation in advance of a major planning application for a new settlement of 2000 houses.
The development immediately adjoins the Elmbridge border at Old Lane, Ockham just two miles from Cobham centre. It is around nine miles from Guildford Town Centre. Despite the proximity to Elmbridge, and Cobham in particular, it will be Guildford Borough Council who will decide the application. Elmbridge Borough Council will hopefully be a formal consultee but our representations may well carry less weight than those of residents within GBC’s boundaries.
With this in mind, CDRA has secured a seat on the Community Liaison Group, set up by Taylor Wimpey for local residents to give feedback prior to application.
