In an article in the Sunday Times newspaper, 23 October 2016, it is revealed that "about 32,000 comments" were received in reply to the July 2016 draft Guildford Local Plan Regulation 19 consultation; this is a substantial increase over the reported 20,000+ received in reply to the July 2014 Regulation 18 consultation. This volume is among the highest in the country in response to a local plan consultation.

The article focuses on the proposed Three Farms Meadows (Wisley) development. The leader of Guildford Borough Council, Paul Spooner, is quoted, claiming that the council believe the "exceptional circumstances" exist that enable them to consider large tracts of the 89% of borough land designated Green Belt (one of the highest local authority proportions in the country) for "local housing need".
