Planning and enforcement updates
Plot 4 are appealing the refusal of an electricity cable and box in the middle AGLV field, which they said was for an electric strimmer. If this was allowed we would see electricity in many more plots, enabling not only electric power tools but also lighting and any other electrical equipment, a further move towards fragmentation and commercialisation of the fields. Any comments already made will be considered but further comments can be made to the planning inspectorate https://acp.planninginspectorate.gov.uk/ by searching for case 3292157.
Guildford Borough Council have been working hard to clamp down on the burning of commercial waste in the lower AGLV field with some success. They are working to identify the owners of the two touring caravans in the lower field, are drafting an enforcement notice against the one near the big barn at the far side of the field, and have identified one more caravan that has appeared recently. They have been making regular inspections, have served a number of notices and are using a range of powers at their disposal. However, whilst they are making progress on each case, GBC are not promising immediate results on the ground, and what they regard as legitimate development will not be removed. Wanborough Parish Council will continue to push for strict enforcement where the law permits.
