Britain in Bloom visit Farnham & The Bourne...

On Tuesday 29th July the judges from 'Britain in Bloom' visited Farnham to judge them on their efforts for the 2014 competition. As part of this they were welcomed into The Bourne. They visited the Cross Roads to see the great work that has been completed in the heart of our community. They also visited the Community Garden on Middle Bourne Lane. 

We should hear in September how well we did in South East in Bloom and Britain in Bloom competitions. We will let you know.

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.


There have been a number of planning issues that have arisen over the past couple of weeks. The main ones are:

Langhams Court

After the consultation period ended the developers put in for planning for 18 dwellings comprising 6 flats and 12 houses. This application is currently being considered by Waverley Borough Council. The plans can be found using the following link: Langhams Court

Heron Court

Local residents were invited to a consultation with the developer who is planning to build 2 detached dwellings in the rear garden of Heron Court. We would expect a full planning application to be submitted shortly and we will update the site with the link to the planning once planning has been applied for.

Compton Fields

There has been a scoping document request sent to Waverley for 190 new dwellings on the land north and south of Waverley Lane. The scoping document can be found here. We are liasing with the South Farnham Residents' on this one too.

We will keep you posted of any developements.
