Catesby Estates promoted 14 acres of land for residential development in Folly Hill, Farnham.

An application for 96 homes, children’s play area and Suitable Alternative Natural Greenspace (SANGS) was registered in June 2016 and refused under delegated powers in September 2016 by Waverley Borough Council.

An appeal was submitted in March 2017 to The Planning Inspectorate, who delayed his ruling following the adoption of Waverley’s Local Plan, Farnham’s Neighbourhood Plan and a change in circumstances around the Council's 5 year supply of housing.

The inquiry resumed in October 2018 and consent was granted in December 2018.

Inspector Philip J Asquith agreed with Catesby Estates’ evidence that there was a  “significant shortfall” in Waverley’s delivery of housing against government targets, and that the scheme would not result in such a level of landscape harm to the character and appearance of the area that would outweigh the benefits of the proposal. 

The site was sold to CALA Homes in April 2019.
