Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


In order to facilitate the residential development of the former Westway site, previously sold by the Council, the proposal is to vary the original transfer document (TP1) to clearly define the rights reserved to the Council, improving the access and parking rights as well as the facilities for the adjacent Aldershot Rd allotment users. The owners of the former Westway site will be providing utilities services to the entrance of the allotment site. The services will include electricity, foul drainage and water connections (all capped off and metered).

Guildford Allotment Society have been consulted and are supportive of this proposal and will benefit from 6 car parking spaces on site.

If you have any queries, then please contact Mark Appleton who will be happy to provide further information

Reasons for the decision:

To facilitate the building on new homes and to improve the access and parking rights of the adjacent allotment users and to establish utility service connections thereto also.

Alternative options considered:

The decision meets the policy requirements for the Council and there were no alternative options available.
