Have your say on the borough’s future

Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012 – Regulation 19

You are invited to take part in the consultation on Guildford Borough Council’s Proposed Submission Local Plan: strategy and sites.

This Proposed Submission Local Plan: strategy and sites sets out the vision for the whole borough and the Council’s approach to development up to 2033. When adopted the plan will play an important role in shaping the borough’s future – how our town and villages develop, protecting and enhancing our natural environment, developing our local economy, improving leisure and visitor facilities, addressing transport and infrastructure needs and supporting more sustainable forms of travel.

The Proposed Submission Local Plan follows on from previous consultations held on the Council’s Issues and Options document (2013) and Draft Local Plan (2014). We are keen to share the Proposed Submission Local Plan: strategy and sites with you, to show you how our plans have progressed and hear any comments you may have. The six-week consultation runs from 12 noon on Monday 6 June 2016 to 11:59pm on Monday 18 July 2016.  The Proposed Submission Local Plan: strategy and sites, supporting documents and key evidence will be available to view on our website at www.guildford.gov.uk/newlocalplan, at our Millmead office in Guildford and at local libraries within the borough.  Further information, including details of the drop-in events, is available on our website www.guildford.gov.uk/newlocalplan.

If you would like to comment on the plan please complete the online questionnaire by following the link from www.guildford.gov.uk/newlocalplan. Alternatively, you can let us know your views by emailing localplan@guildford.gov.uk, completing a paper questionnaire or writing to: Planning Policy, Guildford Borough Council, Millmead House, Millmead, Guildford, Surrey GU2 4BB. Paper copies of the form are available from the Council’s Millmead office reception, local libraries, at the drop-in events or by phoning 01483 444471.
