Topic papers

We have produced a series of background documents called topic papers to set out how we have developed the key strategy within the Guildford borough Submission Local Plan: strategy and sites (2017).

Each topic paper looks at the relevant national and local guidance that informs the Guildford borough Submission Local Plan, and explains how the strategy has developed. The topic papers also highlight the information, evidence and feedback that has informed the choices made in formulating the policies.

The intention of the topic papers is to provide background information; they do not contain any policies, proposals or site allocations. The topic papers have been finalised to accompany the submission of the Guildford borough Proposed Submission Local Plan to the Secretary of State for examination.
