New Village Signs

Two new village signs were erected at the end of January. They are both located on the A287 Frensham Road, one as you head south just past the entrance to Middle Bourne Lane. The other is heading north just before the entrance to Frensham Vale. Thanks to all of those who were involved in this project. I think you'll agree the signs look excellent.

Current Planning applications.

Although there are several planning applications always going through the council. We endeavour to look at the applications that will have an impact on the Bourne Community as a whole.

The current applications we are looking into are as follows:


Heron Court: Appeal on original plan with two large houses, still no decision.
Planning for one house with access from Aveley Lane - refused
Planning for one house using shared access from Ford Lane - permitted. This decision overturned the advice of the planning officers.

Gardener's Hill: This was approved as part of the appeal process.

7 Frensham Road: Approved, this application is setting a precedent with introduction of four German-made lifts for stacked car parking.

Compton Fields:  appeal now submitted. 

Frensham Vale: Public meeting in March


Bourne Pavilion:  planning application was allowed:


Farnham in Bloom


Farnham has achieved double gold in numoerous categories in the South and South East in Bloom competition.
Thank you to all of you who took part in planting the tubs and watering etc.

The judges visited Farnham on July 9th this year.  The Bourne is now an accepted participant of the Farnham in Bloom competition. 

We are delighted that our small effort at the crossroads has been part of Farnham yet again winning GOLD.

None of this would be possible without the involvement of our local community which has been bought together by The Bourne Residence Association & Bourne Conservation Group.
