Lovelace Neighbourhood Plan

LNP coverProposal for a neighbourhood plan for Lovelace

The Council designated the Lovelace Neighbourhood Area on 2 July 2015. The Lovelace Neighbourhood Area covers Lovelace Ward, encompassing the parishes of Ripley, Ockham and Wisley.

Ripley and Ockham Parish Councils have worked with the Lovelace community and other stakeholders to produce the Lovelace Neighbourhood Plan.

A neighbourhood plan is a document that contains planning policies for a single neighbourhood area. Adopted neighbourhood plans become part of the Development Plan for the borough and are used to determine planning applications that fall within the neighbourhood area they cover, along with the Council's Local Plan and other considerations.


The consultation will run from 12 noon on 4 November to 12 noon on 16 December 2019.

The neighbourhood plan and other submission documents can be found below under 'Consultation documents'. Printed copies of the documents will be available to view at the Council office main reception at Millmead, at Guildford library and at Horsley Library during the consultation period. Please respond to this consultation through the online comments form below. Alternatively, you can email or write to us using the details at the bottom of this page.

After the consultation we will publish your comment and may publish your name, but will not publish personal details such as email and postal addresses. We will not accept anonymous comments.

Your comments will be provided to an independent examiner who will make recommendations about whether the plan should proceed to a referendum of residents, whether it should be modified before the referendum, or whether it should be refused. If the plan proceeds to referendum and a majority of those voting vote in favour, the plan will enter into force.

The examiner will consider whether the neighbourhood plan meets the Basic Conditions and other relevant legal requirements, and whether the referendum area should be extended beyond the neighbourhood area. Your comments should focus on these points.

Your representation may include a request to be notified of the Council's decision on whether to adopt or refuse the proposed neighbourhood plan.
