GBC - New Supplementary Planning Document

Message from Guildford Borough Council Planning Policy Consultations

Draft Climate Change, Sustainable Design, Construction and Energy Supplementary Planning Document (SPD)

Guildford Borough Council has produced a Draft Climate Change, Sustainable Design, Construction and Energy Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) and will be consulting on the document from midday Friday 28 February to midday Monday 30 March 2020 (inclusive).

Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs) cannot create policy; rather they provide detailed guidance on how the Council will apply planning policy when determining planning applications. This SPD sets out guidance on adopted Local Plan policies that relate to climate change, sustainable design and construction and low and zero carbon energy.

If you would like to comment on the draft SPD, please visit the consultation homepage at https://guildford.inconsult.uk/consult.ti/CCSDCE20/consultationHome. Please use the 'Online comments form' to respond to the consultation.

Alternatively, you can let them know your views by emailing planningpolicy@guildford.gov.uk, or by writing to: Planning Policy, Guildford Borough Council, Millmead House, Millmead, Guildford, Surrey, GU2 4BB. Please ensure you make it clear which part of the SPD (page, section, paragraph) your comments refer to.

Printed copies of the documents will be available to view in all Guildford borough libraries (during usual opening hours) throughout the consultation period.

Please note that verbal or anonymous comments cannot be taken into consideration. Your comments will be published alongside your name, but your personal details, such as your email or postal address, will not.

I am aware that some of you have had problems trying to use the GBC Planning Portal. It appears to be suffering from breakdowns. Note therefore, that if you are affected when trying to place your comments on the GBC site, as an alternative, you can submit your comments by e-mail to planningpolicy@guildford.gov.uk. This address should be used for policy comments only, any comments on individual planning applications should be sent to planningenquiries@guildford.gov.uk
