With Cranleigh facing several new developments, the most significant at nearby Dunsfold Park is hosting a public consultation this month.
The event is an opportunity for the team behind the Dunsfold Park scheme to explain their vision and how the masterplan has and is continuing to evolve since outline planning consent for 1,800 new homes was granted in 2018.
It will go into more detail about the vision for Dunsfold Park, as well as the content and the layout of the new settlement.
It is the first in what they anticipate to be a series of consultations on the development of Dunsfold Park.
This first phase is largely shaped by Waverley Borough Council’s Adopted Local Plan Part 1: Strategic Policies and Sites, which allowed for an allocation of 2,600 homes at Dunsfold Park.
Dunsfold Aerodrome has its own specific policies, SS7 and SS7a within the document which outline how the development should create a high quality, mixed use community.
This consultation process will also support the discharge of condition 8 of the planning agreement which requires submission of a Masterplan Document detailing design principles and character areas (including density, scale, car parking).
The Rutland Group, who are managing the Dunsfold Park scheme, are seeking your feedback on its form and content prior to submission of a formal planning application for approval of the masterplan design.
Consultation on the design of new buildings, including their appearance, will come later as each phase is brought forward.
The application will be based on what you see at the exhibition, taking account of your feedback and further ideas.
You can view the exhibition at several events, including at Cranleigh Arts Centre on Friday 15th November 2019 between 10am and 4.30pm.
Alternatively, the exhibition is available to view in Unit 217 at Dunsfold Park on 13th and 14th November, and 18th and 19th November between 8am and 8pm.
From 13th November, all the exhibition material can be read or downloaded at dunsfoldparkmasterplan.com, where an online questionnaire will also be available for you to submit your feedback.
Hardcopies of the exhibition information and questionnaire are available upon request which can be done by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 01483 542226.
