Information and news for the community of Badshot Lea Village, Surrey
Posted by JamesHill on 10th October 2016
You may have received an invitation to attend something called the Badshot Lea Community Planning Weekend. We would like you to know that this official sounding event is not a local community initiative and is no more than a public consultation by yet another developer proposing to build up to 350 homes on the fields to the south of our village.
THIS EVENT IS NOTHING TO DO WITH BADSHOT LEA COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION.
Badshot Lea is already set to grow by up to 300 homes. In addition two sites on Green Lane could add another 170. And these are just the sites contained in the Neighbourhood Plan. Other speculative proposals like this one are coming forward and should be rejected.
The people behind this proposal say they are providing much needed housing for the borough. Badshot Lea is already providing a substantial number of these much needed homes, we do not need any more. Be under no illusions this is a group, led by a PR company, trying to sell us something we do not want or need. There is nothing good in this for Badshot Lea.
We have already met with them, seen their plan, and clearly stated our opposition to it.
Please come along to our AGM at Badshot Lea School at 7.30pm on the 19th October for a full discussion and update on what is currently going on in our village.
