Draft Local Plan and Transport Strategy produced together to ensure suitable infrastructure


A bedrock of Guildford Borough Council’s draft Local Plan is the significant programme of transport schemes included. This means the draft Plan will address housing, employment, retail and leisure requirements, supported by suitable infrastructure including transport, education and healthcare. The programme of projects will realise the clear and ambitious Guildford Borough Transport Strategy and infrastructure requirements, which the Council prepared and published in parallel with the draft Local Plan.
