Save Broom and Lees
... because the Green Belt matters

Broom and Lees is a large sports field on the north eastern side of Hurtmore Road in Godalming, Surrey.
It is owned by Charterhouse School.

Waverley Borough Council has repeatedly sought to protect the Green Belt status of this historic field,
which falls within an Area of Great Landscape Value (AGLV),
but Charterhouse is demanding that protection be set aside to make way for a housing estate.

This website was established to help provide information to local residents, and many other interested parties,
whose aim is to Save Broom and Lees.

Thank you for visiting this site.
The Save Broom and Lees Campaign look forward to your support over the coming months.

21 December 2018
Today a number of residents received a letter, dated 18 December and distributed by SP Broadway, from David Armitage Director of Finance and Strategy at Charterhouse. The heading is 'Broom and Lees Fields Consultation'.

It was written to all those who provided written comment at or following the School's public exhibition held on 5th July 2018.

In summary, the letter explains that since that time the School has been reviewing the comments received and discussing its proposals with various organisations and has also met with some residents.

The School now "better understands the concerns of the local community" and is "keen to examine these further". Rather than "rush into a planning application" the School has "decided to review its proposals and re-consider the matter in the early part of 2019".

Recipients are promised that should there be any further developments David Armitage will be in contact again.
