GBC has started work on the second part of the Local Plan; the ‘Local Plan: Development Management Policies’ document. The Council states that this “will provide further and more detailed planning policies to use when we determine planning applications. This Regulation 18 consultation is the first opportunity to comment on the plan as it moves through the various stages of its production. The document identifies a series of key issues for the borough and the policy options that could help address them.

It highlights the Council’s preferred policy options for potential development management policies that will guide decision-making on development applications across Guildford borough. As part of this consultation we are seeking your thoughts on the preferred options identified and whether you have other comments on what the plan should contain.”

This is therefore about the details of the implementation of the Plan rather than the Plan itself, which is now formally ‘Adopted’. Details of the consultation documents and process for commenting are available on the GBC website. Please do take a look at them as they cover topics such as housing density, rural development, protecting the environment, building design, infrastructure and delivery – all of which will have an impact on individual planning decisions and other matters of concern to local residents. The consultation deadline is 22 July.
