The WBC Planning Committee met on Tuesday 23 June to determine the Planning Applications 2019/1177 & 1176. The Woking Football Stadium development was heard first and comprehensively rejected by the committee. The committee were then advised that the officers now recommended refusal of the David Lloyd, Egley Road application – this was unanimously passed We feel that throughout the whole planning process Mayford was treated badly, these were distinctly separate applications and should have been dealt with as such The recommendation was only changed when the WFC plan was rejected, with the reasons now changed to reflect all those which the Society would have made in opposing the original rec

Due to a potential security breach which was brought to our attention on 8th May, we were forced to take our website down after we were threatened with legal action by the Egley road land owner and the Chief Executive of Woking Borough Council.
Woking Borough Council have paid the Landowner £11,000,000 for the small section of protected land on the southern end of the Egley Road site. This now brings the total paid £17,350,000 for just over half of this greenbelt site. We were originally told that the payment was subject to planning approval being granted for the development of David Lloyd. However, like many things inside the council, secrecy seems to be order of the day. The area in question did not receive any supporting valuation but instead relied on a Willing Seller/Willing Buyer basis. After all it's only taxpayers’ money! What is £11,000,000 between friends?
