The document lists the sites which  are  now proposed should be removed from the Green Belt, included in these is the  land at West Hall, as well as the School playing fields etc

As we have said before  the West Byfleet Forum  is licensed  by WBC to write a Neigbourhood Plan, we cannot appose any new developments, we can only influence their design.

As you may be aware the Residents’ Association is short of committee members so the Forum has taken on to update and keep residents informed  on local issues.
Please pass on this information to your friends,  neighbours who may be interested.

In Pyrford a group was set up to appose the release of  land within their area  from the green belt. This group Pyrford’s Green Belt Action Group is speaking for 3 minutes in defense  of their green belt  at this WBC  meeting. As far as we are aware there is  no action group/ person  speaking  on behalf of  West Byfleet residents.

Sheer House 

With in this request for EIA scoping from Altitude there are some  details of what is proposed for this site.

Once an outline planning application is with WBC the RA / Forum will hold a public meeting to explain what is being proposed and to encourage feed back to WBC.
We were informed that this planning  application would be handed into WBC in September…but we are still waiting!
