The site at No1 Farnham Road is a windfall site and not covered by any LPSS2019 site policies however it must be noted it is adjacent to the LPSS2019 Policy A7 (See details linked below) that covers a large area of the western side of the station. The site is also adjacent to the corner of Guildford Park Road and Farnham Road and t Farnham Road on the Farnham Road Bridge.
