Update from the fields
Apart from the odd water tap, all proposed development in the fields has been refused by GBC Planners, all the landowners who have appealed have had their appeals turned down, and there are enforcement orders on every bit of unauthorised development.
The watchfulness, concern and commitment of Wanborough residents has certainly paid off.
There are three appeals outstanding, but based on the Inspectorate decisions so far, it is hard to see how they could succeed
Although the fenced-off area, hard standing and track in the lower AGLV field looks awful (and is a subject of an Enforcement Order), the burning of waste brought to the site seems to have stopped, at least for the time being.
See Wanborough Fields page.
