Report on the letters 1 Jan to 30 June 2020

25 January 2021

The busiest period for four years

During the period there were a potential 993 planning applications we could have looked at.  We sifted through these applications and considered in detail 89 of them.  The Group wrote 41 letters to the Head of Planning Services on a wide range of individual planning applications.  Of those applications 13 were approved as submitted; 8 were approved after amending plans were received and those plans usually took our concerns into account; 5 were withdrawn; 10 were refused; and, at the time of writing, 5 applications had not been decided.  Only one of the refused applications was appealed and that appeal was dismissed.

Help us make Guildford better

We want our town to be vibrant, attractive and liveable. We support development that brings a sense of place and enhances the best aspects of our town. If such aims can be embraced, we believe Guildford has the chance to lead the way in enabling sensitive and sustainable development.

Pressures for development are increasing. Planning rules are being eased. The Society’s commitment to standing up for Guildford is needed more than ever.
