Issue details

Use of Suitable Alternative Natural Greenspace (SANG) land at Shepherd Meadows Sandhurst by Surrey Heath Borough Council

There is an existing agreement for BFC to share up to 500 dwellings SANG capacity from Shepherd Meadows SANG in Bracknell Forest with SHBC. The majority of this SANG capacity has been used up. The intention is to bring this agreement to an end with SHBC paying BFC the balance for the remaining SANG capacity. A new agreement will then be set up to allocate further SANG capacity at Shepherd Meadows SANG to SHBC to mitigate further developments in the emerging Surrey Heath Local Plan.
