2016 Guildford Local Plan


Guildford’s new Local Plan will cover the plans for building in the area from when the Plan comes into effect to 2033. You can read the full Guildford Local Plan online - details are here 


Please find below the responses from GGG to the policies written in the Local plan. Feel free to borrow from these and if you wish use them as a guide for your own personal response to Guildford Borough Council. The policies will be updated at regular intervals and published here. We are working our way through the whole plan to ensure we cover all policies. So if there isn't a GGG response to a particular policy then please check back in a couple of days


You can send emails, you can write letters or you can use the on-line consultation links for policies, sites and the questionnaire.

The Guildford Local Plan is now open for consultation. You have until 11.59pm on 18 July 2016 to respond!

Please respond – this is really important, even if you have commented before. This is a new legal stage of the consultation process. The Planning Inspector will see the comments from this stage but not from previous stages. If you feel your previous comments in previous consultations were not fully taken on board do make the same points again!

If you write about specific policies or sites, then each point counts as a separate response. This is really worth doing – it is why there were 22000 responses from 7000 people last time. It’s worth the effort!

Make sure you express your view very clearly so it cannot be misunderstood. For example, if you wish to object to some aspect of the Local Plan, DO SAY “I object”
