Consultation

Guildford Borough Council is committed to engaging with residents and neighbours at each stage of our aspirations to redevelop the Guildford Park Road car park site.

In April 2022 we held a digital consultation webinar alongside a two-day public exhibition.

Our first consultation was on our early ideas for the site. The constraints that we are working around and the need to deliver best value for taxpayers mean that some parts of the design are fixed, whilst other parts are up for debate. We will be honest about what can change and what cannot.

Later in the year we will hold a second round of consultation when we will show you how we are responding to your feedback and a more developed set of designs, before we submit a planning application.

Feedback

We would be grateful if you could take a few minutes to fill out this questionnaire. If you give us your details, we can keep you informed about the progress of this scheme. These will remain confidential. We will be submitting a new planning application for the site later on this year. This is an important site, allocated for housing in the Council’s Local Plan and whilst the principle of development is already established through the previous consent gained in 2017, we are now developing a new scheme that will deliver more homes.
