Major Sites for Development in Guildford

This page details the status of major sites that are being considered or are in development.  The sites are normally policies in the Local Plan but there are a few that are ‘windfall’ sites e.g. the site made available by the closure of Debenhams 

The Society is keeping these developments under review for Sustainability, Design, Compliance to Planning etc.

Please use the map to see where the sites are; use the Guildford centre marker to click through to more details of the key sites in the town.

We are adding separate webpages for sites as information becomes available so please link through for more information.  The pages also link to our latest posts on the sites.

As background please see the page on Documents that inform planning in Guildford Borough
