Current Projects

Bramley Neighbourhood Plan

Bramley is currently working on producing on a Neighbourhood Plan.  Now that Waverley Borough Council has produced its (albeit currently draft) Local Plan setting out their aims and objectives up to 2032, the Parish Council believes it would be a good idea for the community to produce a Neighbourhood Plan for Bramley.

A Neighbourhood Plan is a community-led framework for guiding the future development, regeneration and conservation of an area.  It is about the use and development of land and may contain a vision, aims, planning policies, proposals for improving the area or providing new facilities, or allocation of key sites for specific kinds of development.  An adopted Neighbourhood Plan will form part of Waverley’s statutory development plan against which all planning applications and development proposals will be decided.  It therefore has more weight in planning decisions than, for example, a parish plan or a village design statement.

We are still in the early stages, but a small committee has been formed which is working on what the focus of the plan should be.  Once the plans are further progressed, we will be involving the community to find out the views of residents.

Proposed development at Dunsfold Park

The Secretary of State has called in the planning application for the proposed creation of a new housing development at Dunsfold Park.  The application will now be considered at a Public Inquiry.

The Parish Council is working with our neighbouring parishes on representation at this Inquiry.  It is believed that a combined Joint Parish Council involvement would carry considerable influence because it would represent most of the parishes surrounding the site as well as parishes to the north and south of Waverley's boundary.

Village Public Access Defibrillator

We are working with Surrey County Council on the possibility of installing a public access defibrillator outside of the Library in the centre of the village.  

We'll keep you updated on these and other current projects as they progress.
