Comparison of 2014 and 2016 draft Local Plan documents

I have, therefore, set the policies side by side along with the GSoc comments in the file below:

20160416_R18-2014_to_R19-2016_Comparison_Policies (more than 200 pages)  This does not include a comparison of the site-specific policies or the proposed site allocations.

I have analysed the Guildford Town Centre and Guildford Urban Area sites as a comparison between 2014 and 2016 and GSoc’s 2014 comments:


I will in due course add the remaining sites from the 2016 draft plan in a similar format.

Jennie Kyte has prepared a very helpful summary (below) which I have just reformatted a little but have made no changes to:


Taken together these documents should help with navigation and orientation of the new draft plan.
