The Guildford Local Plan Examination in Public is scheduled to start on 5 June 2018. 

In the inspector's Matters & Issues for Examination document, he has listed eleven specific areas of questioning that include such topics as the soundness of the Objectively Assessed Need [OAN] calculation, the consideration of unmet housing need from surrounding boroughs, the issue of the timing of housing delivery through the 15 year plan period, the adequacy of the five-year housing land supply, the mix and types of housing, employment land supply, the adequacy Guildford town centre development plans, Green Belt and landscape impact [e.g. AGLV and AONB impact], urban brownfield land usage compared to proposed Green Belt release, and in relation to specific sites the impact of Green Belt release on the TBHSPA and the "exceptional circumstances" yet to be explained by the council required to release such land for housing. 

The inspector issued guidelines for those wishing to add to their previous submissions either in person or in writing; where in writing, the statement should not exceed 5,000 words but appendixes are permitted. This opportunity for residents and their representatives closed on 10 May 2018 and a week later [17 May 2018] for the council's statements in response to the inspector's issues and questions.

 

  • Local Plan EiP Ponders Additional Housing Sites

    NAG attended this hearing 3 July; we were not able to speak as there had been no prior warning of a site in Normandy/Flexford’s being up for discussion. In any event the Inspector made clear he would not allow a detailed discussion of the sites Guildford Borough Council [GBC] had put forward in response to his challenge to find ways of bringing forward house-building in the early years of the plan period; he simply wanted to be able to assess whether or not they would be effective in helping to deliver this objective. CPRE Surrey, who were able to speak, said there would be objections, no doubt, from the communities affected should these sites be included in the final plan. GBC had very little to say about the Normandy/Flexford site and even struggled to show the Inspector a map giving its location.
