Planning application to build on a bridleway
Says Liz Cross
I am a resident of Stoney Bottom, Grayshott GU26 6HW and my property is on a designated bridleway (no. 15).
The bridleway is a narrow, steep but a very pretty lane with currently 5 houses spaced along its length all of which have been there for over 50 years and most considerably longer. My neighbour has put in a planning application for two additional houses on their garden with drives opening up onto the bridleway.
The bridleway is heavily used by walkers, cyclists and some horse riders and we feel that adding two additional dwellings on an already busy single track lane is really dangerous to those who use it.
Link to flyer that we have circulated and also some photos of the bridleway.
