Local Plan 2003 (Saved Policies)

Please note: the Council has adopted a new Local Plan (2015 - 2034) that replaces some policies of the Local Plan 2003. You can find information about the new Local Plan on the Local Plan: strategy and sites (2015 - 2034) page. The 2003 policies that are superseded are listed in Appendix 8 of the new plan.

The Guildford Borough Local Plan (2003) can be downloaded from the link below. This version of the Plan shows all superseded policies as struck-through in red text.
