Local Plan 2015-2034

The Local Plan: strategy and sites sets out the vision for the borough and our approach to development up to 2034. The plan plays an important role in shaping Guildford's future - how our towns and villages develop, protecting and enhancing our natural environment, developing our local economy, improving leisure and visitor facilities, and supporting more sustainable forms of travel.
