Draft Local Plan will strengthen cultural, historical and physical wellbeing within Guildford borough

  • History, culture and heritage contribute significantly to sense of place and appeal of the borough

  • Many places have limited access for most people despite the green appeal of the land

  • Draft Local Plan includes provision for green and public spaces in proposed developments

In a rural environment, steeped in history and natural appeal, protecting local culture, heritage and much-loved countryside is a vital part of Guildford borough’s draft Local Plan. Additionally, by identifying neighbourhoods where there is a shortage of green and public spaces, future provision for suitable facilities can encourage sports participation and levels of fitness. Across both heritage and health, the draft Plan will help to enhance people’s quality of life, foster social and cultural interests and increase the vibrancy of the area.
