Planning committee

The Planning committee usually meets fortnightly on a Thursday to review any planning applications that have been submitted to Waverley Borough Council for properties within the parish of Bramley.  All Councillors are members of the Planning committee.  

The next meeting is scheduled to take place on Thursday 18th August from 5:00pm via Zoom.  Councillors will review the list of current applications listed below, and agree draft responses to be submitted to Waverley Borough Council.   Please contact the Parish Clerk if you would like to discuss any of the applications or draft responses. 

If Councillors deem the list of current applications to be straightforward and require no further discussion, or the Parish Clerk receives no requests to discuss the applications or draft responses, the meeting will be cancelled.  The draft responses will then be finalised and submitted to Waverley Borough Council.   

Members of the public are welcome to attend these meetings to discuss any planning matters with Councillors (see dates of future meetings here).  You are advised to contact the Parish Clerk beforehand to check that the meeting is taking place.  If there are no applications to review, the meeting will be cancelled.

This list of planning applications is updated weekly on a Monday.  Follow the links from the reference number for details of the application on the Waverley Borough Council planning portal.  

Reference Address, details and Draft Parish Council response

WA/2022/01932

LAND ON SOUTHERN SIDE CENTRED COORDINATES 500488 144853, CLOCK HOUSE LANE, BRAMLEY

Erection of two dwellings, landscaping and associated works.

Draft response:

OBJECT

The Bramley Neighbourhood Plan (Appendices paragraph 7.7 Site 637 Clockhouse Lane) considers this land and notes that the land has “only possible development use for between one and several large houses [which] does not align with this plan’s objectives” and therefore rejects development on it given the land is green belt, AONB and outside the Settlement Boundary.  Waverley Borough Council had previously rejected the development of a single large property and the Bramley Neighbourhood Plan saw no reason to seek to alter Waverley’s stance.

For any development to proceed it would require that very special circumstances be demonstrated that would cause Waverley Borough Council to consider designating this site as a rural exception site.  The very special circumstances that the applicant puts forward appear to be the positive environmental and ecological credentials of the proposed properties.  Bramley Parish Council has no reason to question those credentials to which considerable thought has clearly been given but does not believe that they demonstrate very special circumstances especially when put alongside the fact that the application does not contribute to the objectives of the Bramley Neighbourhood Plan.  Bramley Neighbourhood Plan states that “four and above bedroom homes have no priority within this plan”.

Given that the application does not contribute to the objectives of the Bramley Neighbourhood Plan and that such at least such a contribution would be required if very special circumstances were to be demonstrated, Bramley Parish Council objects to this application.

WA/2022/01957

22 HIGH STREET, BRAMLEY, GU5 0HB

Change of use of ground floor from beauty salon (Use Class E) to mixed use beauty salon (Use Class E) and nail salon (Sui Generis).

Draft response:

SUPPORT

Bramley Neighbourhood Plan Policy BNP-L1 recognises the value of Bramley Local Centre and seeks to enhance that value through supporting retail businesses operating on Bramley High Street.  Given this application may be assumed to enhance the viability of 22 High Street, Bramley Parish Council would support this change of use.

WA/2022/01961

SLADES FARM, THORNCOMBE STREET, BRAMLEY

Application under section 73A to remove Condition 5 (restrictions on time period use of three tents) of WA/2020/1861 as the tents have been removed.

Draft response:

NO OBJECTION

The applicant appears to have delivered against the previous time restriction on white tents and replaced them with green tents that were acceptable to Waverley previously.  On that basis Bramley Parish Council has no objection.

WA/2022/01982

LAND AT WISTERIA, BIRTLEY ROAD, BRAMLEY

Erection of two detached dwellings and associated works.

Draft response:

This application will be discussed at the Planning committee meeting taking place on Thursday 18th August via Zoom.  Please contact the Parish Clerk for joining details if you wish to attend.

Informative application:

NMA/2022/01881

Amendment to WA/2021/01093 – adjust a window to a door with side window.  This new door will be 1.5m to the left of the existing side door.

Draft response:

NO OBJECTION

Bramley Parish Council has no objection to this modest amendment.
