OUTSTANDING PLANNING APPLICATIONS
PLAN/2013/0856 – Brookwood Farm
Reserved matters application for the access, appearance, landscaping, layout and scale for the erection of a primary school.
In December Woking Borough Council (WBC) Planning Committee deferred making a decision on the above application. One of the main reasons for deferment was due to the fact that Surrey County Council (SCC) had withdrawn a planning application for a new footpath and bridge connecting the two school buildings (more on this later in this report). There was also concern with regards general access to the school both on foot and for vehicle access. SCC had also failed to give any details on the materials to be used in the construction of the school and the Planning Officer stated in his report that if the materials are not carefully selected it could result in stark form of development within the landscape. Finally Councillors have issues with parking for parents dropping or collecting children.
Note: The developer has added more details to the plans in line with the request from the Planning Committee.
