In order that our planning application for Forestry and Filming at Bourne Wood addresses, wherever possible, the issues and concerns raised by interested parties and that opportunities are taken within the application to add value to the filming activity locally, we asked you to complete our online survey to capture your views.
65% of online responses were strongly supportive or supportive of filming activity continuing in Bourne Wood. 15% of online responses were strongly against.
Many respondents, even those in support of the activity, were concerned about particular issues surrounding filming, predominantly: Nature, Recreational Access, Traffic and Noise.
We have amended our initial outline proposals for future filming at Bourne Woods in light of feedback from the Residents Association, people’s feedback from the drop in event and the online survey responses. We recognise the main issues and have changed our planned application to address these points. The full application will be available on Waverley Borough Council's website very soon: http://waverweb.waverley.gov.uk/live/wbc/pwl.nsf/webdisplaypubliclist
