Farnham Neighbourhood Plan Modifications Proposal

7th February - 21st March 2019

Please note: An error has been identified in Map E: Farnham Landscape Character Assessment, 2018. This was replaced with a corrected version of the map on 20 February 2019. This is consistent with the information in the Land Character Assessment (August 2018) by HDA.


In 2018 Farnham Town Council resolved to modify the 'made' Farnham Neighbourhood Plan. The Modifications Proposal was formally submitted to Waverley on 25 January 2019.

The modifications incorporate:

  • revisions to Areas of High Landscape Value and Sensitivity;
  • an amendment to the plan period to align with the Waverley Borough Local Plan: Strategic Policies and Sites;
  • site allocations to meet the additional requirement for housing in Farnham in the adopted Waverley Borough Local Plan Part 1: Strategic Policies and Sites
  • an update to the provision of Suitable Alternative Natural Greenspace; and
  • minor text changes and factual updates.

The full list of modifications is set out in the Statement of Minor (non-material) updates to the Made Farnham Neighbourhood Plan 2017.
