In my capacity as Chairman of the Burpham Neighbourhood Forum, I this week (w/k 24th June) gave evidence at the public Examination into Guildford’s Local Plan, alongside fellow Forum member, Mr Jim Allen. We presented evidence relating to a number of issues, both Borough-wide and Burpham specific, including Green Belt and infrastructure considerations. Following submission of evidence, the Inspector indicated we could assist Council officers in making landscaping requirements stronger within the proposed policy for Gosden Hill Farm.
You can read more about the Hearings being held into the Local Plan, including the timetable and agenda for the remaining sessions, by clicking here.
The Hearings are being presided over by and Independent Inspector, Mr Jonathan Bore, who will decide whether the plan is Sound or not. If found sound it can be adopted by the Council and used to guide development in the Borough.
