Following a number of delays, the housing secretary has announced his decision to allow 1,800 at Dunsfold Park in Surrey, ruling that the scheme would accord with the newly adopted Waverley Local Plan.

The appeal related to Dunsfold Park, the largest brownfield site in the Waverley borough council area in Surrey. The site is home to Dunsfold Aerodrome, an airfield built by the Canadian Air Force in the Second World War. After the war, it was used for the construction of jet fighters. It became known more recently as the site of the test track used in the BBC programme Top Gear.
