Green Belt Supplementary Planning Document
New development is generally not allowed in Green Belt. Unless it meets one of the exceptions list:
- paragraphs 154 and 155 of the National Planning Policy Framework
- Policy P2 of the Guildford borough Local Plan: Strategy and Sites 2019
This SPD provides further guidance to help applicants understand:
- how we will assess their proposals for new development
- if their proposals for new development fall within one of these exceptions
We carried out a four-week consultation on the draft Green Belt SPD in February/March 2023. You can view the SPD draft together with the responses that we received.
We made the decision to adopt the SPD on 23 November 2023.
