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.

 

  • NAG submits response to Southern Pipeline consultation

    Normandy Action Group submitted its response to the Southern Pipeline corridor Option M & Q proposals as they affect land surrounding Flexford, Normandy and Wanborough. The response highlights that the consultants appear to have failed to take account of the local landscape designations of Area of Great Landscape Value [AGLV] and Site of Nature Conservation Importance [SNCI] in drawing the north and south boundaries of the Option M & Q corridor.

    Any pipeline laying towards the southern corridor boundary is likely to drive a wide swathe thorough the AGLV land that stretches north from the A31 down the northern slopes of the Hogs Back to Flexford Road; any pipeline laying towards the northern corridor boundary is likely to have a severe impact on the woodlands to the west of Normandy ward.

    The content of the response is available on the NAG web site

     
  • Housing proposal at Palm House Nurseries refused

    The planning application for six 2-bed houses [18/P00470] on the site of the former Palm House nurseries, that would result in the demolition of the existing horticultural building, has been refused.

    The officer report maintains that the "proposal would not constitute a sympathetic development but would result in the erosion of the agricultural and rural character of the site and surrounding area and would therefore fail to respect the established pattern of development within the area". 

     
  • Article 4 Direction compliance at Wanborough being tested

    Guildford Borough Council [GBC] has to decide whether to confirm the Article 4 Direction within 6 months of it first being served. A report is being drafted which, it is understood, is likely to propose continuation indefinitely. It will go before a planning committee meeting, probably at the end of June. The large number of representations sent by residents to Tim Dawes, Planning Development Manager at GBC has, it appears, ensured there will be a recommendation to continue.
