Guildford Borough Council has released its Interim Town Centre Framework document ready for adoption by the Executive Committee.  THIS DOCUMENT HAS THE POTENTIAL TO SHAPE THE NEXT TEN OR MORE YEARS’ DEVELOPMENT OF THE TOWN CENTRE and there will be no further consultation before adoption.

Guildford Vision Group’s supporters and followers will know that the Vision Group was formed around a public meeting on 21st March 2012 that arose from the flawed Draft Town Centre Masterplan and the shared recognition that WE NEED A PROPER PROFESSIONAL MASTERPLAN WITH THE FULL ENGAGEMENT OF THE COMMUNITY AND STAKEHOLDERS.  That is the Vision Group’s single and sole purpose.

On Tuesday 28th August at 6.00 for 6.30pm in the upper hall at the Trinity Centre (next to Holy Trinity Church in Guildford High Street) Guildford Vision Group will give you its first thoughts on the document once it has been published.

We have been promised a redrafted document with new diagrams; we are, however, concerned that there will be no public scrutiny of this Interim Town Centre Framework which, it is understood, has been prepared IN ADVANCE OF ANY TRAFFIC STUDY.

If you are unable to attend this briefing (which we aim to complete by 8.00pm) please contact your Councillor(s) and ask them to explain the document to you.  Look out for the document on the Council’s website:  Keep checking our website : during the next few weeks for critical information about the future development of Guildford.

Please be under no illusion.  WE NEED YOUR HELP to make sure that the full Council understands the extent of support for a proper master plan and the depth of concern about this piecemeal process of planning our town.

Please pass this invitation to as many people as possible; friends, family and colleagues and we look forward to welcoming you on 28th.

To help us plan this event, please let us know if you intend to come to
