CONCERNS have been raised over a Sturt Road planning application which was being discussed by Waverley Borough Council’s Western Area planning committee on Wednesday night.

The plan is seeking to vary condition 1 to allow changes to the footprint, road and slab levels layout (including to the position of the substation) and design (including alterations to the house types) at land at Sturt Road, Haslemere.

Officers had recommended the application for approval before Wednesday night’s meeting. The proposed alterations are to a previously approved application for up to 135 homes at land at Sturt Farm.

However, resident Chris Stacey has claimed work has taken place at the site before the current plans have been approved.

In response, a Waverley Borough Council spokesperson said: “We are aware construction works are taking place at the site and have been the subject of monitoring by the council’s planning enforcement service.

“It was not deemed necessary to serve an enforcement notice requiring the applicant to stop works.

“Any works undertaken ahead of receiving formal planning permission are undertaken at the applicants’ own risk.”

To view the plans, visit and search for the planning reference number WA/2021/02027.
