acorns and oak leaves

Thank you to everyone who has objected to the Taylor Wimpey planning application. We know Guildford have been overwhelmed by the number of objection letters – they have indicated to us they are in receipt of circa 2000. They are struggling to cope with the upload of these objections to their portal and have apologised for the delay. Every objection counts and if you are keeping an eye on the portal and don’t see your letter, please let Guildford know.

If you haven’t yet objected to Taylor Wimpey’s proposal but would like to, it is not too late. Send your objections to quoting 22/P/01175. If you need help with providing good reasons why this application will impact negatively on our village let us know or contact who will send you some pointers. You may find it useful to look at other objections on the Guildford site and you’ll note that some of the statutory consultees such as Heathrow Airport and RAF Northolt have objected. Surrey Police, Surrey Adult Care and others have asked for further information. We need as many objections as we can muster!

National Highways are well underway with their upgrade work for Junction 10 M25/A3. They attended our recent parish council meeting and councillors along with a number of residents vociferously expressed significant concern regarding safety issues, delays, traffic queues and the huge and devastating number of trees they are felling. We are very concerned about the local ecology and are in the process of arranging a meeting with Highways to hold them to account for their approach.  For any specific observations about anything related to the work, you may want to contact National Highways direct on

We are aware that the speed awareness sign in Ockham Road North is only working intermittently and are in the process of getting this attended to.

Please contact the Parish Clerk with enquiries
