Key considerations

  • This area of Guildford is currently changing in character from primarily industrial to residential (including student accommodation), through a series of planning permissions on individual sites
  • Proximity to the Corridor of the River Wey
  • Flood risk in this area. Although the site is outside of the modelled flood extents for flood zone 2 and 3 (medium and high risk of fluvial flooding), land in relative close proximity to this site is within flood zone 2 and 3
