Burpham Neighbourhood Area and Forum Consultation

A comparison of the current and the proposed Burpham Neighbourhood Area boundary

Following ward boundary changes in May this year, we've received an application to change the Burpham Neighbourhood Area. The proposed change would see the neighbourhood area boundary enlarged, so that it matches the new ward boundary for Burpham.

The application also asks us to designate a new Burpham Neighbourhood Forum for the modified Neighbourhood Area. 

Tell us what you think

We're inviting residents to have their say about the proposed boundary changes and forum. The consultation begins at midday on 30 August 2023. It will run for six weeks until midday on 12 October 2023. 

You can make your comments online through the consultation web page (opens new window) or by emailing You can also write to Planning Policy at our Millmead offices in Guildford.

The comments submitted will help us decide whether to put the draft proposals in place.


The Burpham Neighbourhood Area and the Burpham Neighbourhood Forum were first designated in 2013. The forum produced the Burpham Neighbourhood Plan, which came into force in 2016. Forum designations expire after five years, so this one was renewed in 2018. It lasted until April 2023.

The proposed changes would not affect the current Neighbourhood Plan for Burpham until it is reviewed or replaced.
