Draft Strategic Development Framework (SDF) Supplementary Planning Document (SPD)

Guildford Borough Council has produced a Draft Strategic Development Framework (SDF) Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) and will be consulting on the document from midday Monday 20 January to midday Monday 24 February 2020.

I am writing to you because you have previously indicated that you would like to receive notifications about planning policy consultations. If you would prefer not to receive these notifications in the future, please email us at

Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs) supplement policies contained in adopted Local Plans by providing further detail.  The SDF SPD provides detailed formal guidance to assist future masterplanning, planning and development of the following strategic sites:

  • Weyside Urban Village (former Slyfield Area Regeneration Project);
  • Gosden Hill Farm;
  • Blackwell Farm;
  • Land to the South of Ash and Tongham; and
  • Former Wisley airfield.

The sites are already allocated in the recently adopted Local Plan: strategy and sites. The principle and scale of development is therefore already established and the SDF SPD provides further detail to the requirements in the adopted plan. The SDF SPD will contribute towards achieving the requirement for high quality design and placemaking, ensuring the long-term delivery of sustainable communities and associated supporting infrastructure.

If you would like to comment on the draft SPD, please visit the consultation homepage at Please ensure that you use the ‘Online comments form’ to respond to the consultation.

Alternatively, you can let us know your views by emailing, 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 document (page, section, paragraph) your comments refer to.

Paper copies of the documents will be available to view at the Council office main reception at Millmead and 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. After the consultation we will publish your comment with your name, but will not publish personal details such as your email or postal address.
