Burpham Court Farm buildings to be sold and Wetland use considered

Although situated just outside Burpham, in Jacobs Well, residents in Burpham have for a number of years been interested in the future of Burpham Court Farm. The decision has now been taken (April 18th 2017) by Guildford Borough Council to sell the buildings, in their current state, whilst keeping the land within the ownership of Guildford Borough Council and actively considered for use as a wetland nature reserve.

This decision should be welcomed as it will secure the future of the buildings, probably for much needed residential use, whilst using the land for community use.

The site, which closed in 2009, is no longer viable as a stand-alone farm.
