Proposed Submission Local Plan: strategy and sites 2016 - Part 2: Sites

A33: The University of Law

POLICY A33: The University of Law, Guildford

Allocation

The site is allocated for student accommodation (sui generis)

Requirements

  • Significant regard to height of buildings (buildings higher than two storeys are unlikely to be suitable)
  • Retain some parking on site, sufficient to meet day to day operational needs
  • Sensitive to the setting of the Grade II listed building (Braboeuf Manor)

Opportunities

  • Green corridors and linkages to habitats outside of the site, given the site's proximity to ancient woodland and trees

Ward

Ownership

University of Law

Area (size)

0.7 ha

Existing use

Key considerations

  • Impact on landscape (AONB)
  • The site is within the curtilage of Braboeuf Manor which is a Grade II Listed building and also within the St. Catherines Conservation Area
  • The development may impact on some trees which could potentially provide habitat for bats, nesting opportunities for birds and foraging areas for badgers
  • Provision of car parking
