G1 (2) Transport Provision, Access, Highway Layout and Capacity Satisfactory access and highway layout is provided and the traffic generated by the development is compatible with the local road network. Appropriate provision has been made for pedestrian, cyclist and public transport facilities. G1 (3) Protection of amenities enjoyed by occupants of buildings The amenities enjoyed by occupants of buildings are protected from unneighbourly development in terms of privacy, access to sunlight and daylight, noise, vibration, pollution, dust and smell. G1 (4) Access for people with disabilities Development to which the public would reasonably have access makes provision for safe and convenient access by people with disabilities. G1 (5) Crime Prevention The design and layout of buildings and surrounding spaces provides for public safety and deters vandalism and crime. G1 (6) Flood Protection Areas of floodplain, identified on the Proposals Map, are safeguarded from development that would increase the risk to people or property from flooding. G1 (7) Land Drainage and Public Utility Infrastructure Adequate land drainage and public utility infrastructure is in place to meet the needs of the development. G1 (8) Light Pollution External lighting is designed to minimise glare and the spillage of light from the sight. G1 (9) Energy Conservation. The design and layout is energy efficient. G1 (10) Conservation of Water Resources. The design, layout and landscaping is efficient in the use of water. G1 (11) Development on or Close to Contaminated Land Where a proposed development is on or close to contaminated land the applicant demonstrates that the site is safe or can be made so through remedial measures. G1 (12) Safeguarding and Enhancement of the landscape and existing natural features Development is designed to safeguard and enhance the characteristic landscape of the locality and existing natural features on the site, such as, hedgerows, trees, watercourses and ponds which are worthy of protection. G1 (13) Mixed Use Where appropriate the development incorporates or maintains an existing mix of land uses and activities where: (a) The uses are mutually compatible; (b) There is no unacceptable disturbance through traffic, noise, pollution or other adverse effects.
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. G5 (7) Materials and Architectural Detailing Materials are of a high standard and harmonise with surrounding buildings.

G5 (9) Landscaping Design A high standard of landscaping, to include walls, enclosures and paving schemes, as well as trees and other planting is provided to ensure that new development integrates into the existing townscape and landscape. G5 (10) Open Spaces of Value Open spaces, whether public or private, which contribute to the character of an area, in terms of the views they create, the feeling of openness they allow, are protected.
Housing in Urban Areas Policy H4 Housing in Urban Areas Planning permission will be granted for residential development in the urban areas of Guildford and Ash and Tongham provided that the development: 1 Is in scale and character with the area; 2 Has no unacceptable effect on the amenities enjoyed by the occupants of buildings in terms of privacy and access to sunlight and daylight; 3 Has no unacceptable effect on the existing context and character of the adjacent buildings and immediate surroundings.
New Residential Development Policy H10 New Residential Development Residential development should be at a density of between 30 and 50 dwellings per hectare net. Densities above this range will be permitted in locations with good public transport accessibility. Developments with a density below 30 dwellings per hectare net will not be permitted except where higher density proposals would have an unacceptably detrimental impact on the existing character of the area. Proposals for residential development should provide a mix of dwelling sizes and types to reflect the needs of those seeking housing in the borough. In all cases, the proposed development must accord with the criteria contained in relevant policies including G1, G5, H4 & RE3.
Recreational Open Space in Small Resid. Policy R3 Recreational Open Space Provision in Relation to New Small Residential Developments Residential development of between 5 and 25 units, will require either: 1 Recreational open space provision based on the standards in Policy R2 above; or 2 A contribution towards recreational provision in the area at an appropriate scale to the size of the development, unless the provision of open space in the ward is, and will remain after the development adequate, based on the standards set out in R2.
Dev. Affecting Trees, Hedges & Woolands Policy NE5 Development Affecting Trees, Hedges and Woodlands Development will not be permitted if it would damage or destroy trees protected by a Tree Preservation Order or in a Conservation Area unless the removal would: 1 Be in the interests of good arboricultural practice; or 2 The need for the development outweighs the amenity value of the protected trees. If the removal of any trees is permitted as part of a development, a condition may require that an equivalent number (or more) of new locally native trees be planted either on or near the site.
Potential Special Protection Areas Policy NE1 Potential Special Protection Areas (pSPA) and Candidate Special Areas of Conservation (cSAC) Planning permission will not be granted for proposals which are likely to destroy or have an adverse effect directly or indirectly on the nature conservation value of potential Special Protection Areas (pSPA) and candidate Special Areas of Conservation (cSAC), as shown on the Proposals Map.
Species Protection Policy NE4 Species Protection Planning permission will not be granted for any development that would be liable to cause any demonstrable harm to a species of animal or plant or its habitat, protected under British Law unless conditions are attached requiring the developer to take steps to secure their protection.
Movements Implications of Development Policy DN2 Movements Implications of Development Development will only be permitted where it is, or can be made, compatible with the transport infrastructure in the area.This should include identification of improvements to encourage walking, cycling and the use of public transport.
Parking Provision Policy DN3 Parking Provision Development proposals should comply with the aim of promoting sustainable travel choices by reducing the amount of land used for car parking but increasing cycle parking facilities. Maximum car parking standards will be set according to location, type of development and public transport accessibility. Minimum cycle parking standards will be retained. Park and Ride schemes will be supported where they form part of an integrated planning and transport strategy for an area.
Managing Urban Areas Policy LO2 Managing Urban Areas The planning authorities will manage development within the urban areas and promote the principles of urban renaissance through the mechanism of Comprehensive Urban Strategies.The re-use or redevelopment of previously developed land and buildings should enhance the quality of the built environment, the facilities and services available, and movement within Surrey?s towns. Development leading to the loss of urban open land, which is important to the amenity of local communities or identified in a greenspace strategy, will not be permitted. Development that could attract a high level of car-borne trips will only be acceptable in a location that is, or could be made, easily accessible by public transport.
Design & the Quality of Development Policy SE4 Design & the Quality of Development Development should contribute to improvements to the quality of urban and rural areas whilst retaining features that contribute to sense of place.The design, both of buildings themselves and of the way they integrate with their surroundings, must be of a high standard. Development in areas of special local character should safeguard the distinctive qualities for which the area has been designated. The layout of new development and the opportunities presented by redevelopment within built-up areas, should give emphasis to the needs of pedestrians, cyclists and public transport users thereby enhancing movement choice. The local planning authorities will identify, promote and safeguard a framework of open spaces and green corridors for each settlement.
Nature Conservation Policy SE7 Nature Conservation Land or water habitats designated as of importance for nature at an international, national, regional or county level will be conserved and enhanced. Development, whether directly or indirectly, which may harm designated sites that are important for nature conservation will only be permitted where it has been clearly demonstrated that the need for the proposal outweighs the need to safeguard the nature conservation importance, and that no alternative site is available.
