Dunsfold Park Planning Application "Called In"
9th March 2017



The planning application for 1800 homes at Dunsfold Aerodrome has been called in by the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government.

Despite the fact that Waverley Borough Council approved this controversial planning application, the Secretary of State has decided that Central Government will make the final decision on the planning application following a new local public inquiry.

The Secretary of State notes that there are location and sustainability issues with a development of this size, together with infrastructure concerns, all of which require further consideration.

The date and format of the inquiry are yet to be announced.


See PDF above for correspondence to local MP Anne Milton and Waverley Borough Council informing them of the Secretary of State's decision.
