More than 200 neighbours surrounding a Surrey airfield have been asked to comment on new plans to build homes on the site.

Waverley Borough Council said it was consulting with occupants of 220 homes and businesses on the plans for Dunsfold Aerodrome.

Dunsfold submitted a scheme for 1,800 homes last month. If permission is granted flying would come to an end.

The council said it had now published the plans on its website.

They are likely to be considered for the first time by its eastern area planning committee on 9 March.

Neighbours have until 5 February to object or support the plans.

Dunsfold says its vision is to deliver a "new Surrey village", with extra business space, a school, health centre and country park with a package of transport improvements.

The aerodrome is currently home to Dunsfold Business Park, which has more than 100 businesses.
