As part of our due diligence work for these proposals, detailed ground investigation works, and archaeological trenching will be taking place commencing Thursday 7th November 2019.  

The work is expected to last 4 weeks and some work will  include a digger.  Development is not starting on site and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.

APPLICATION SUBMITTED

An Outline Planning Application has been submitted to Guildford Borough Council for determination (Reference: 19/P/00634). The application can be viewed at: www.guildford.gov.uk/searchforaplanningapplication.

We are not intending to hold a further public exhibition on the revised proposals, however we would be happy to receive any comments you may have or answer any questions.

Guildford Borough Council will carry out a formal consultation on the proposals with local residents. We will respond to any comments made during the application determination period.

PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT

Catesby Estates are promoting 14.2 acres of land at Lollesworth Fields, Ockham Road North, East Horsley, Surrey.

Lollesworth Fields represents a unique opportunity to create a vibrant and sustainable new housing development for East Horsley.
 
The development will cater for the whole community, from first time buyers looking for affordable housing, families looking for a place to grow, and homes for those looking to downsize. 

The housing will incorporate a mix of 1, 2, 3, and 4 bedroom homes with 40% affordable homes provided for those struggling to get on the housing ladder.

Following consideration of the Policies contained in the Emerging Guildford Local Plan and the East Horsley Neighbourhood Plan, land has been sent aside within the site for delivering small scale office space.  

An Outline Planning Application will be submitted to Guildford Borough Council for up to 110 new homes with 40% affordable housing along with new public open space.

The application will undergo a statutory consultation period, where anyone who wishes to make their views known on the development, can submit their comments to Guildford Borough Council, before it goes before the planning committee.

YOU SPOKE, WE LISTENED:

Following on from our public consultation in December 2018, we have carefully reviewed all the comments received from local residents and councillors and have revised our indicative proposals for the site in response:

  • Demolition of both Chicane and Quinton’s to create a new enhanced green frontage off Ockham Road North
  • The buffer from the building boundary line to the ancient woodland has been extended from 15m to a minimum of 30m
  • 50% of the site is public open space
  • A new green corridor has been introduced through the centre of the site, reflecting the former field boundary and utilising the existing natural drainage. This area will provide a green frontage entrance along the main access route into the site
  • Higher densities concentrated within southern portion of the site, with lower densities towards development edge
  • Additional drainage feature to the east of the site, resulting in increased open space next to the rear gardens of properties located along Ockham Road North

LOCATION

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

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.

PLANNING CONTEXT

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.

The draft Guildford Local Plan currently being Examined by the Planning Inspectorate, identifies the site as suitable for release from the Green Belt and proposes that the site is allocated for 100 new homes, including 40% affordable homes.

LOOKING FOR A NEW HOME?

The worsening of the UK housing crisis is well publicised, with the Government vowing to deliver 300,000 new homes every year. 

The pressure on the housing market is significant with the demand for homes outstripping supply.  An increase in life expectancy, immigration, single person occupancy and the demand for second homes being just some of the contributing factors.

For many first time buyers and young people, house prices are out of reach, with ever increasing deposits and monthly payments reducing the number of owner occupiers.

Struggling to get on the housing ladder?

East Horsley is a highly desirable, but expensive place to live, with an average house price of £1,087,900 (Rightmove).  Many local people are struggling for the opportunity to get on the housing ladder and find a place they can call home.

40% of the new homes delivered at Lollesworth Fields will be affordable housing.

What is affordable housing?
