In early November 2019, the Guildford Local Plan will be subject to Judicial Review [JR] in the High Court. Two local Parish Councils (Ockham PC and Compton PC) and Green Belt campaigner Mr J Cranwell have initiated three JRs on the grounds that the council agreed a housing requirement of 10,000 new dwellings but nonetheless allocated land for 14,000 houses, failing to show “exceptional circumstances” for the release of green belt land to build housing in excess of that required.

As reported in the Guildford Dragon, these three challenges are not seeking to reject the whole Local Plan. Should the claimants be successful, the council will be able to consider amendment of the proposed use of rural sites within the adopted Plan.
