New Guildford Borough Council draft Local Plan is ready to read – follow the links
Effingham Residents Association (EFFRA) will comment later on the new version of the plan as it affects Effingham and the surrounding area. That said there is huge relief to some that Effingham Lodge Farm has retained its Green Belt protection and appears to have been discounted as a development site. This site has been contentious for the past year as Effingham Parish Council have – for reasons unknown – sought its development contrary to the advice of the Independent Planning Examiner, CPRE and EFFRA.
Some of our residents have voiced concern regarding how to read such large documents online. The following links are indeed large documents but can easily be read using your search engine (hold down the Ctl key and press f). This brings up the search engine box where you can type in Effingham (or whatever else you wish to research) and every time you press your return key another Effingham (or other word you typed in the box) will come up.
Guildford Borough Council will debate the Local Plan at their:
Infrastructure Executive Advisory Board
Wednesday, 13th April, 2016 7.00 pm
