West Horsley is no longer ‘washed over’ by the Green Belt, and all protection afforded by this crucial planning constraint within our amended settlement boundaries has been removed. There are three allocated sites in West Horsley now.
Our Neighbourhood Plan is our last defence. As part of the total ‘Development Plan’ for the Borough its policies must be taken into consideration. We are now relying heavily on this to defend inappropriate development and retain the character of our rural village.
The Parish Council remains firm in its stance to protect green fields, our environment, our heritage assets, and preserve our local character and landscape setting.
