Latest News: Proposed development of Langhams Court in Ridgeway Road.

There was an exhibition on Monday 7th April in Brambleton Hall between 2.30 - 7.30pm. Many residents will have had a card appear through their letterbox today 1st April. It is extremely difficult to glean much from the available tiny artist's  impression but it appears the proposal is for a quite a few houses on this site. This of course raises many implications. 

For further details of the proposals outlined so far please go to the Langham Court website . We would also encourage you to look at the 'Langham Court Consultation board' . This has some artist impressions of the redevelopment.

There is also a questionnaire which you can let the developers know your concerns before they submit their proposals to the Planning Authorities.

 

 

Proposed closure of The Bourne Post Office: News of this has just come to light. The Post Office have begun a programme of restructuring many local urban Post Offices. Although the Post Office are offering a set amount of £10,000  towards this,  the full cost to Minesh to inplement the required  changes far exceeds this amount. This has come as a real blow. Other local business premises have been approached to enquire about the possibility of re siting the post office. These enquiries are on going. 

The Farnham Herald have been informed and we are asking the people of the Bourne to put their heads together to see if we can find a solution to this. To be without a Post Office is unthinkable. The main Farnham Post office is approximately 2.9 miles away with an infrequent bus service. To drive into Farnham means car park costs of around 80p not to mention the queues and time needed. 

Wrecclesham or Frensham have no direct public transport routes.  

 

Proposed Parking Restrictions for South Farnham. New parking restrictions are out for consultation. Closing date is April 4th. https://www.surreycc.gov.uk/roads-and-transport/parking/parking-news-and-updates/parking-news-and-updates-in-waverley.
