We the undersigned petition Surrey Heath Borough Council to Challenge the decision of the PINS to allow premature release of reserve land. More details

Petition update from the council, 12 February 2016

In accordance with the Council's petition scheme, the Portfolio Holder for Regulatory has submitted the following response to this petition:

"The Council recognises the strong local feeling over the Planning Inspectorates decision to allow the development of this site for housing. This has been amply demonstrated both in the objections received, the representations made by residents at the appeal, the number of signatories to the e-petition and the subsequent correspondence.

In considering where to challenge such a decision, whilst recognising the strength of public feeling, the Council must have regard to likelihood of the success of any such challenge. Whilst the Council and residents may disagree with the decision that is not in itself sufficient reason for a challenge. The residents have submitted concerns over the issue of land supply but in this instance to be successful any challenge must address all of the issues raised in the decision. This is because even if a challenge concluded that the Inspector had erred in his treatment of housing land supply it could still conclude that the decision should stand because of the other issues identified by the Inspector from which he concluded that development of the site was acceptable. These other matters are ones which the Council and residents raised with the Inspector, who whilst recognising these concerns concluded that on balance development was acceptable. Such an approach is difficult to challenge as it is a subjective judgement. The further advice that has been taken on the Inspector's decision could find no evidence that he had erred in his treatment of the facts before him or the application of government guidance. For this reason, the Council has, with regret, had to conclude that there is no reasonable prospect of a challenge being successful and accordingly has decided not to challenge the Inspector's decision on this application."

More details from petition creator

We the undersigned petition Surrey Heath Borough Council to challenge the decision of the PINS to allow premature release of reserve land.

The Planning Inspector has cast aside borough and national policy and the valid objections of the local residents and granted permission for premature release of reserve land to the South of Kings Road, West End, which comprises green fields classified as countryside, lying outside of the settlement area of West End, and close to the Bisley border.

The report for appeal reference APP/D3640/W/15/3028247 does not give sufficient valid reasons for casting aside, breaching or completely ignoring both Borough and some national planning policy, the instructions of the Minister of State with regards the validity of untested SHMA's, and many of the valid points raised by a significant number of local residents.

We petition Surrey Heath Borough Council to lodge its challenge before the challenge receipt deadline of 28th January 2016, against the decision of the Planning Inspector to allow this green reserve land to be released for development of 84 homes.
