Proposed Submission Local Plan: strategy and sites 2016 - Part 2: Sites

A33: The University of Law

POLICY A33: The University of Law, Guildford


The site is allocated for student accommodation (sui generis)


  • Significant regard to height of buildings (buildings higher than two storeys are unlikely to be suitable)
  • Retain some parking on site, sufficient to meet day to day operational needs
  • Sensitive to the setting of the Grade II listed building (Braboeuf Manor)


  • Green corridors and linkages to habitats outside of the site, given the site's proximity to ancient woodland and trees




Outside of a village (previously developed land in the Green Belt)




University of Law

Area (size)

0.7 ha

Existing use

Private car park for University of Law

LAA reference

Site 1210

Key considerations

  • Impact on landscape (AONB)
  • The site is within the curtilage of Braboeuf Manor which is a Grade II Listed building and also within the St. Catherines Conservation Area
  • The development may impact on some trees which could potentially provide habitat for bats, nesting opportunities for birds and foraging areas for badgers
  • Provision of car parking
