Langley Bottom Farm Langley Vale Road Epsom KT18 6AP – Public Briefing Langley Vale Village Hall from 7-9 pm on 21st April 2022
On 22 February 2021 Epsom and Ewell Borough Council Planning Committee refused the above planning application for the demolition of the existing farm buildings and the construction of 20 dwellings of which 8 would be affordable together with associated access, landscaping and parking. The main reason for refusal was that the proposed development would constitute inappropriate development in the Green Belt and was also in an unsustainable location outside the built-up area without good public transport links.
The applicant has now appealed the decision. The details of the appeal and relevant documents can be found here.
This Appeal constitutes a precedent-setting challenge on the principle of development in Epsom and Ewell’s Green Belt as a whole and it is therefore important that those who share the view that such development should not be permitted make their views formally known to the Inspector. Accordingly Woodcote (Epsom) Residents Society are holding a public briefing at the Langley Vale Village Hall from 7-9 pm on 21st April 2022. You can see their leaflet announcing the meeting and providing details of the issues and arguments and how to object to the Inspector here.
