AN ILLUSTRATIVE MASTERPLAN
Over the last few months, the developers and its development team has been preparing draft plans to show what development at Walnut Tree Close could look like. This has involved a lot of work by a range of technical specialists, such as architects, planners and engineers. However, this is only the start of the design process.
We want to know what you think of our initial ideas and need your help to refine our plans. At the moment, the draft plans shown on the website have evolved following an in-depth design process.
Through engagement with the community, we hope that local people will provide constructive feedback that we can use to develop the plans further before a planning application is submitted to Guildford Borough Council. Whatever you think or would like us to know about the plans, we want hear it.
