WAG – Who We Are
The Wisley Action Group was established to defend over 300 acres of prime agricultural land from development at ‘Three Farms Meadows’, the former Wisley airfield, in the village of Ockham, near Wisley, Surrey.
WAG has a committed membership of loyal supporters from Ockham, adjacent Surrey villages and further afield, who have fought-off a persistent stream of planning applications in recent years – the latest from current owners, Taylor-Wimpey, who have ambitions to build more than 2,000 houses.
Although there’s a runway on a strip of land requisitioned by the government during World War 11, it was never used for military purposes but the government reneged on its pledge to restore the strip to its original state after the war.
At a time when our green fields and open spaces have never been under greater threat, this highly productive, high grade farm land continues to grow food for the nation’s table. It remains a sanctuary for wildlife – much of it endangered – and is a site of Nature Conservation Interest.
WAG welcomes your involvement and support by joining us in our campaign or donating to our fighting fund. We enlist the very best planning professionals and legal advisers, including leading counsel, who have helped us defend ‘Three Farms Meadows’ against a series of planning assaults.
