Strategic Development Framework Supplementary Planning Document Consultation

SDFGuildford Borough Council has produced a Draft Strategic Development Framework (SDF) Supplementary Planning Document (SPD). The draft 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.

These sites are all allocated for residential development and associated uses in the adopted Local Plan: strategy and sites (2019). 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.


The Draft Strategic Development Framework Supplementary Planning Document can be found below under 'Documents'. Paper copies 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.

For information purposes, the Initial Consultation Statement is also available to view below. However, this does not form part of the consultation and comments on this document will not be accepted.

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. Please ensure you clearly state the page, paragraph or figure to which each of your comments relates.

After the consultation we will publish your comment with your name, but will not publish personal details such as your email or postal address. We will not accept anonymous comments. We will also publish a final Consultation Statement identifying main issues raised and our response to these. The SDF SPD will then be finalised and taken to Executive for adoption.
