Results of EFFRA’s Questionnaire to Residents

EFFRA LOGO

The EFFRA Committee would like to thank residents for responding to EFFRA’s questionnaire, especially as there were so many other calls on your time this summer.

The outcome of your responses formed the Residents Association position in replies to both the draft Neighbourhood Plan and the Draft Guildford Local Plan. This will also be extremely helpful in our work alongside the Parish Council in defending the Appeal lodged by Berkeley Homes and the Howard School.

A total of 244 completed eligible questionnaires were analysed and the responses are summarised below.  Your responses and comments were extremely helpful and greatly appreciated which have been treated in strict confidence with anonymity applied.

With thanks.

The EFFRA Committee
