Guildford Town Centre Plans- Consultation 1

17 December 2021

First Webinar

The first Webinar on Shaping Guildford's Future took place on Tuesday 14 December. 

Themes at the Meeting

There was a wide variety of responses to the very high level presentation of the aims and objectives.  Comments focused on:

  • Heights in the Town Centre
  • Environmental Challenges and Sustainability.
  • River Corridor
  • Guildford’s Purpose

The last point covers a discussion on what Guildford should be known for; there was a feeling that Guildford unlike other Towns doesn't have clarity of what it is known for.

You can see the Webinar here.

It is worth looking at the Shaping Guildford Future Website particularly the Introductory Video and also the Slide Set that shows more detail on some of the ideas being considered
