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: Awaiting decision of appeal.

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

Compton Fields: No appeal submitted as yet.

Frensham Vale: Public meeting next year.

Willow Cottage: Owner is trying extremely hard to retain and protect history of this cottage but there are some questions over the size of the extension and the fact it projects extremely close to footpath.

No 10 Valley Lane: A large extension which was questionable but yesterday this was declared invalid due to incorrect drawing so no action taken by us. I am sure it will be re-submitted.

Bourne Pavilion: Plans now submitted.I think the general opinion of the committee is that it is rather large.


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.
