Weyburn Works, Elstead, Surrey

Client: MMC Developments Ltd

LPA: Waverley Borough Council

The approved development for MMC Developments Ltd replaces 115,000sqft of B2/B8 floorspace which is life-expired. The approved development will result in the clean up of the site, which had experienced significant contamination as a result of its previous manufacturing use.

This is a significant development within the Surrey Green Belt, Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Area of Great Landscape Value. The Committee in resolving to approve the application accepted 15% of affordable housing, all of which would be intermediate (shared-ownership) housing. The Committee considered that the benefits of the provision of much needed housing and a care home including the clean up of a contaminated brownfield site was acceptable, notwithstanding the site’s location within the Green Belt and the reduced amount of affordable housing.
