Resolution to Grant – 100% Affordable Homes Scheme in Waverley

We are delighted to announce that the planning application for 27 affordable homes at Binscombe, Godalming for Opus Works secured a resolution to grant at the Waverley Borough Council planning committee meeting last week.


The fully affordable scheme will deliver 17 shared ownership homes and 10 affordable rented properties (capped at 65% and 70% OMV) all designed to meet the Nationally Described Space Standards (NDSS) and help address a shortfall of these tenures of housing within Godalming.


The proposal was designed to address the local heritage assets using materials consistent with buildings in the nearby Binscombe Conservation Area. Additional public benefits included the provision of carefully crafted public open space that contains the built form of the development, allowing the delivery of a Local Area of Play, SuDs, BNG in excess of 50% and footpath connections in to the soon to be improved Copse Side woodland.

FINC ARCHITECTS LTD worked closely with Opus Works and the consultant team of Stuart Michael Associates, BOYER PLANNING LIMITED All Ecology Limited Therm Energy Barton Hyett Associates Ltd Apple Environmental LVIA Ltd RegenCo to deliver a high-quality scheme supported by Godalming Town Council, Ward Members and the Planning Committee.

A Job well done to Adam Leatherbarrow & Steve Mills from our Chelmsford HQ in delivering this project.


We are very much looking forward to seeing the affordable homes delivered.
