Catesby Estates are delighted to announce the sale of Lollesworth Fields, East Horsley to Taylor Wimpey (June 2021).

Catesby Estates has been promoting the 14.2 acre site at Lollesworth Fields, Ockham Road North through the Local Plan process for its removal from the Green Belt since 2013. 

The site has outline planning permission for 110 new homes of which 40% will be affordable housing, along with new public open space.

The Local Plan was adopted in April 2019 and identified the site as suitable for release from the Green Belt for approximately 100 new homes.

Three High Court challenges were submitted, claiming the Council and Planning Inspector had failed to demonstrate the exceptional circumstances required to remove land from the Green Belt. These were dismissed in December 2019.

Following extensive public consultation with Guildford Borough Council, both East and West Horsley Parish Councils and local residents, an outline application was submitted.  Guildford Borough Council’s Planning Committee followed Planning Officers recommendations for approval and granted outline planning permission in 2020,

ABOUT THE SITE

Lollesworth Fields is to the north of East Horsley close to its border with West Horsley.

Excellent transport networks make it an ideal location for planned sustainable development.  The site is well located with good links to the wider road network (A3, M25) and the Guildford railway line runs alongside the site to the south with regular direct rail connections to London Waterloo, approximately every 15 minutes.

The railway station and the village centre are just a 250m walk away.  Facilities and services in the village centre include a local convenience store, butchers, Post Office and café.

The nearest bus route to the site is service number 478 (Reptons Coaches) which links Guildford to Leatherhead and stops on Ockham Road north adjacent to Horsley train station.

The site is enclosed by boundary hedgerows and mature trees, with Lollesworth Wood bordering the western site boundary.  The site is also bordered by mature rear gardens of residential properties off Heatherdene (private road) and school playing fields back onto the northern boundary. Mature rear gardens to properties along the B2039 Ockham Road North run along the eastern boundary with Stratford Brook.

The NPPF provides a national framework for Councils to produce their own Local Plans, which reflect the needs and priorities of their communities, with a strong emphasis on the delivery of sustainable development.   

East Horsley is one of the area's top three most sustainable settlements as identified within the Council’s Settlement Hierarchy Study dated May 2014 with a range of services and public transport connections.
