COUNCILLORS UNANIMOUSLY VOTED TO REFUSE TAYLOR WIMPEY PERMISSION AT A PLANNING MEETING ON 10th JULY.
A public meeting of the Guildford Borough Council planning committee was held last night to consider the development of the former Wisley airfield site.
It was held to confirm what decision would have been made if the application had not been the subject of an appeal.
The principle of the development of the site is supported by the local plan. However, officers recommended that the benefits of the Development Plan did not outweigh the harm.
The committee agreed that they would have resolved to refuse the planning application.
