ABOUT US – GUILDFORD VISION GROUP
We are a group of mainly professional people from all walks of life who share a common goal and passion – that Guildford should become an even more attractive, vibrant and pleasant place to live, work and visit.
We came together to form the Guildford Vision Group to respond to Guildford Borough Council’s initial draft Town Centre Framework in 2012.
We all believed that this was poor and lacking in vision and inspiration.
Since then we have campaigned tirelessly for a visionary plan with the Council having the determination necessary to develop the town as a holistic whole around its people and place making, rather than bit by bit through the piecemeal expansion of its buildings and roads.
We are delighted that the Council listened to us and commissioned consultants Allies and Morrison to prepare a broader and better Masterplan.
However, the Council has yet to commit to delivering the plan.
So our work continues even more urgently as we seek to ensure the best elements of the new Masterplan are put into action and changes are made where required.
Most importantly we believe that the only way to deliver the full vision of a truly pedestrianised town centre and open riverside for Guildford is to create a new crossing over the river and railway which takes traffic around the town centre.
