GUILDFORD LOCAL PLAN DOCUMENTS
Working in partnership with a local authority
Our work with Guildford Borough Council (GBC) has demonstrated that working in close partnership with a local authority can result in a highly resource efficient way of producing high quality plans.
As part of producing the Local Plan, GBC officers had written a wide range of planning policy, technical evidence and supporting documents, all of which were subject to public and statutory consultation. We worked closely with the project officers to ensure that these large, and at times highly technical documents, could be easily read and understood by the public. We prepared supporting maps and illustrations, designed a graphic template to be used throughout the suit of documents and type-set all documents. Crucially, we also acted as a “critical friend”, providing urban design and editorial advice where required.
