Guildford Borough Council Local Plan

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.

In October GBC held a six-week public consultation on their Draft Local Plan which incorporated the proposed main modifications requested by the Independent Examiner in July. The consultation is now closed and we await the publication of the new Guildford Local Plan.
