Government legislation requires Councils to set out policies to guide future development of their boroughs up to 2031 and to engage the community in its formation of a Local Plan.

21 November 2017 Guildford Borough Council agrees that our new Local Plan can be submitted to the government’s planning inspectorate.
Now that Guildford Borough Council's Local Plan has been posted to the GBC website and is in the public domain, GBC have instructed Coverdale Barclay to arrange to help resource and deliver future communications for the next phase of the Local Plan.
