The Examination in Public (EiP) of the Guildford Local Plan began today (5th June 2018). The EiP is presided over by Independent Inspector, Jonathan Bore, who is appointed by the Secretary of State. The Hearing sessions are open to the public. Details of the timetable for the EiP sessions and relevant background papers can be found here. The Burpham Neighbourhood Forum will be attending and making representations on behalf of the local community.
Members of the Burpham Neighbourhood Forum tonight (21st May 2018) elected me as their new Chairman. The outgoing Chairman Ros Pollock held the post for four years and oversaw the adoption of the Neighbourhood Plan in 2016. I’m delighted to have been elected Chairman at this crucial time in the life of Burpham and the Forum. I look forward to working with other members of the BNF and the Burpham Community Association to give Burpham the representation it needs.
There are no elections in Guildford in 2018, so I and fellow Guildford Conservatives have been helping our Conservative friends and colleagues in Woking to get elected this coming May. Conservative Councils tax you less and have a strong record of local action in Guildford, Woking and the surrounding Boroughs.
