Effingham Parish Council has submitted a formal objection to plans by Berkeley Homes for an additional 114 homes on the Lodge Farm site in Effingham.

At their meeting on 27th July, the Parish Council heard evidence from parish councillors on a working group set up to examine two planning applications from Berkeley Homes: for 114 additional homes (reference 21/P/01306) and for a change to the original permission granted at appeal in 2018 (reference 21/P/01283).

Chair of Effingham Parish Council, Ian Symes, thanked the working group for their considerable effort in researching the applications and said: “Tonight, Effingham Parish Council has considered a wide-ranging and in-depth review of all the evidence impacting the applications from Berkeley Homes. We have made a reasoned and well- informed decision and will be strongly objecting to these plans on behalf of our residents.”
