Scotland Park Gateway to the South Downs National Park
Phase One was granted planning permission in February 2022. Although Waverley Borough Council refused our application in 2021 (against planning officer advice), a Planning Inspector granted it on appeal in February.
We hope that construction will start later this year and envisage the build will take approximately 18 months to complete. We will post updates here should you wish to follow our progress.
Work to remove Japanese Knotweed on Phase One’s site is programmed to start on Wednesday 10 August 2022. The contractors have been instructed not to commence before 8am. The work is envisaged to take a week to 10 days.
