The proposed 2018-19 budget and other financial plans will be discussed for recommendation at the Executive meeting on 23 January, for final discussion and approval by the Full Council on 7 February. This will include the council's investment strategy. It appears the western wards of the borough may be surprise recipients of council largesse. However, when looked at against the background of the submitted Guildford Local Plan sites there might be a hidden agenda.

GBC has revealed that it is working with sources of external joint funding such as the Enterprise M3 Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), Surrey County Council and Network Rail on key infrastructure projects such as

  • new Guildford West station in Park Barn
  • improving the A331/A31 Hogs Back road junction
  • new road bridge over the railway in Ash

These particular infrastructure projects appear to enable those parts of the Local Plan (before it has even been examined and approved by the Planning Inspectorate) to the west of the town concerning

  • the expansion of Surrey Science Park by University of Surrey
  • the proposed housing development by University of Surrey at Blackwell Farm and its associated secondary school
  • the need for rail service access to expanded University of Surrey accommodation on Manor Farm, the expanded Surrey Science Park and the new settlement with its school
  • the need to remove the traffic flow blockage of Ash level crossing on the A323 as more and more housing is pushed into Ash and Ash Green. 

The trajectory of the Guildford Local Plan was set in 2010 and it looks as if it hasn't changed much.

  • Retrospective planning application for stabling & fencing on AGLV land at Wanborough

    Whilst the Article 4 Direction on the AGLV land at Wanborough is welcome, it has become evident it is less than permanent, apparently being in place for only 6 months.

    As a result of the council's action, a retrospective planning application [18/P/00044] has been submitted for Change of Use for Plot F "from Agricultural to Equestrian for the use of keeping horses for pleasure. Erection of 3 units of mobile field shelters/stables, gate and fencing", rather than agricultural land where only grazing is permitted. On observing the plot, a casual passer-by would find it hard not to conclude the "mobile field shelters" are permanent stable blocks.

  • Planning application for 30 dwellings at former Elms Gardens site refused

    The refusal of 17/P/02326 highlights four key issues for larger scale developments in the Glaziers Lane.

    • The bulk of the development is at odds with the openness of the Green Belt and represents inappropriate development
    • Lack of proof that "very special circumstances" exist for development in the Green Belt
    • In opposition to the ribbon form of development in the area
    • The requirement to mitigate the impact of development that falls within the 400m-5km zone of the Thames Basin Heaths Special Protection Area
