Stephen Mansbridge comment Sept 2014


22 September 2014 - Working together to develop our new Local Plan


The public consultation on Guildford’s Draft Local Plan closed at 5pm. We want to thank everyone for taking part in our most significant consultation in recent times, being twice the statutory length.

Cllr Stephen Mansbridge, Leader of the Council, says: “The Draft Local Plan raised many concerns, which we need to consider most carefully. I thank all those who have taken the time to understand the issues and who made comment on what is an undoubtedly difficult task. We will take great care to ensure that the views of our community are at the forefront of our decision making process.”

We ran the Draft Local Plan consultation for 12 weeks to help reach out to as many people as possible. Our Planning team will now review the responses from the many residents, businesses, community groups and stakeholders who gave their feedback.

Thank you to everyone that copied their responses to us or sent them to us in the post - we've had c. 350 emails/  letters, all of which objected to the draft local plan in its current form. This has helped WHPC to understand the depth of feeling on this issue within the village and also helped shaped our response to Guildford.
