Subsequent to the publication of the Housing White Paper, the government delayed the release of proposals for a 'standardised' method of calculating 'housing need' in a local plan. The proposed formula, where 'affordability' now plays a major part, is subject to consultation, with the consultation period ending in November 2017.

Local community groups have been dismayed to see that this formula, if applied to Guildford borough, would result in a 59% uplift in currently proposed housing targets contained in the draft Guildford Local Plan, according to the data table released by the government.

Given that housing numbers in the last revision of the proposed submission Guildford Local Plan were rescheduled to push more beyond the 2033/34 cut off date but result in no overall reduction, this would raise the approximate housing volume from 20,000 to well beyond 30,000. This could pose a significant threat to the 89% of metropolitan Green Belt land within Guildford borough, as the council is proposing approximately 70% of new dwellings in the Green Belt already.
