Design Code Policy G5 Design Code Development proposals which do not comply with the following design requirements will not be permitted: G5 (1) Context for Design New development respects established street patterns, plot sizes, building lines, topography, established views, landmark buildings, roof treatment, aspect and relationship with other buildings. G5 (2) Scale, Proportion and Form New buildings respect the scale, height and proportions and materials of the surrounding environment. G5 (3) Space Around Buildings Existing spaces of value are respected and new spaces created through development should have an attractive and identifiable character. G5 (4) Street Level Design Buildings and spaces at pedestrian level provide visual interest and a sense of place and identity. G5 (5) Layout The built layout is easily understood by the user and creates areas of identifiable character. G5 (6) Important Public Views and Roofscape Important public views are protected and opportunities to create attractive new views and vistas are provided and encouraged.

Identified Settlements in the Green Belt Policy RE3 Identified Settlements in the Green Belt The following settlements in the Green Belt are identified with their boundaries shown on the Proposals Map: Albury, Chilworth, Compton, East Horsley, Effingham, Fairlands, Flexford, Gomshall, Holmbury St. Mary, Jacobs Well, Normandy, Peaslake, Pirbright, Puttenham, Ripley, Send, Send Marsh/Burnt Common, Shalford, Shere, West Clandon, West Horsley (North), West Horsley (South), Wood Street, Worplesdon. Within these settlement boundaries new buildings will be permitted in the nature of infilling on land substantially surrounded by existing development for the developments referred to in Policy RE2 and the following purposes: 1 Development of a small gap in an otherwise continuous built up frontage by up to 2 dwellings of appropriate scale and design; 2 Small scale housing developments, appropriate to the scale of the settlement and locality. 3 Community or employment facilities appropriate to the scale of the settlement on land substantially surrounded by existing development. The above will not be permitted where it involves the loss of important open spaces, harms the character or appearance of the area or where necessary services are inadequate.
Replacement Dwellings in the Countryside Policy H6 Replacement Dwellings in the Countryside Outside the urban areas of Guildford and Ash and Tongham replacement dwellings will be permitted provided that the development: 1 Does not result in the loss of a small dwelling; 2 Is in scale and character with the area and avoids the adverse affects of overdevelopment; 3 Has no unacceptable effect on the amenities enjoyed by the occupants of buildings in terms of privacy and access to sunlight and daylight; 4 Has no unacceptable effect on the existing context and character of the adjacent buildings and immediate surroundings. In addition to the above criteria, outside the identified settlements and within the Green Belt there will also be a presumption against the replacement of existing dwellings with dwellings which are materially larger than those they replace.
