A roundup of some of the latest planning activities in our village:
Homebase and Garden Centre, Redding Way.
Approval has been given to replace Homebase with 3 retail units plus 7 additional parking bays. In the past there have been restrictions on what they can sell in Sainsbury’s and Homebase. With the latest approval the conditions have been watered down. In our opinion, Sainsbury’s have frequently breached these conditions already (the addition of Timpson’s being an obvious one).
Condition 4: The range of goods sold in the development hereby approved shall be solely comparison goods unless otherwise agreed in writing by the Local Planning Authority.
Condition 7: No part of the total floor space of the store shall be used for separate concessions including key cuttings/shoe repair, hairdressers, banking, photo developing studios, opticians, dry cleaners or any other concession unless otherwise agreed in writing by the Local Planning Authority.
146,148,150 Robin Hood Road
Planning application to build a part two storey, part single storey rear extension plus rear dormer roof extensions and sub-division of x 3 dwelling houses into seven flats (3 x 1 bedroom and 4 x 2 bedroom) with associated parking.
last month the Planning Officer refused permission for Thameswey to build 4 terraced houses on the land between the Co-op and the bungalow, however Thameswey have submitted an appeal to the Secretary of State. Thameswey is wholly owned by Woking Borough Council and they refuse to accept the decision of the local Planning Office.
Land adjacent to No.10 Ivydene.
Planning application to build a two storey detached dwelling (4 bedroom).
This is not the first planning application for this piece of land. The land belongs to a house on Bagshot Road. In fact the last application that was rejected is still pending a decision on an appeal.
