Planning

The Planning Group meets every three weeks.

It is consulted on major planning proposals at all governmental levels. This is a major undertaking and is much appreciated by the stakeholders in Guildford.

It reviews all planning applications in Guildford town centre, and others in the Guildford urban area which it considers to have significant impact on the locality.

It engages in pre-application discussions with developers and councillors on major applications. It writes about 75 letters per year to the Council commenting on planning applications. On occasion a representative speaks at Planning Committee meetings.

We delay investigating and writing the summary of the letters we have written for at least six months after the end of the period because generally it needs that time to elapse to allow most decisions to have been made on the planning applications.
