Planning Inspector, Jonathan Bore has released his first tranche of questions to Guildford Borough Council [GBC] regarding the Guildford Submission Local Plan 2018. The questions highlight issues that have concerned residents across the borough all the way through the local plan process, reflected in the over thirty thousand comments submitted to the Regulation 18 version of the plan and the additional nine thousand plus comments received for the Regulation 19 version of the plan.

In regard to the Green Belt, the inspector points to 

  • a lack of explanantion of what GBC considers to be the strategic level exceptional circumstances justifying the release of the amount of Green Belt land indicated in the plan and its broad spatial distribution
  • an explanation of what GBC considers to be the local level exceptional circumstances relating to each specific site from the Green Belt

Disturbingly, he raises the spectre of a potential increase in the OAN echoing the "affordability" arguments currently under consideration in the revised NPPF consultation. However, this is balanced by comments that suggest an over-protective approach to employment land and commercial floorspace in the town should be re-visited with the seeming objective of its possible release along with brownfield land for housing, in combination with a potential expectation of a more realistic and expanded amount of student housing accommodated on the University of Surrey site, both to the potential benefit of Green Belt protection.

The Planning Inspector's document is attached below.

After a series of internal scoping exercises, Esso have put forward four options for public consultation on routes the pipeline might follow. The preferred options run to the north of Guildford borough but the less preferred southern corridors run through areas covered by the wards of Ash & Tongham, Normandy, and Worplesdon, then north into Woking Borough.
