Godalming Town Council would like to thank all the wonderful volunteers from our community who supported the preparation of the Godalming and Farncombe Neighbourhood Plan, the Town Council is delighted to be able to inform you that at the referendum held on 9 July 2019 the overwhelming majority of the vote (91.5%) was for a Yes Vote. Details of the referendum results can be found on Waverley Borough Council’s website (click here).
To enable uploading to this website, the Neighbourhood Plan has been split into two parts:
The Neighbourhood Plan focuses on matters that have been identified as important by the local community. The Neighbourhood Plan seeks to deliver the expressed priorities of Godalming and Farncombe and will provide a basis for dealing with planning applications in the Godalming and Farncombe area over the next decade or so.
The Neighbourhood Plan sets out policies to create a ‘balanced community‘. One of its principle aims is to accommodate growth and housing need which strikes a balance between much needed housing and the need to protect all the aspects and character of our neighbourhood that makes Godalming and Farncombe so special.
