We hope you agree with our vision for a Guildford which is centred on people and open spaces, and which reunites the two halves of the town around a newly invigorated riverside.

However, we still need to convince Guildford Borough Council to commit to delivering the Masterplan and, most importantly to delivering the crossing which will remove traffic from the town centre.

What we certainly do not need is a plan which adopts only some areas and wastes the once in a lifetime opportunity we have now to have a properly integrated approach to securing the town’s future.

How You Can Help – Guildford Vision Group: What you can do:

  • Write to your local councillors asking them to support our proposals
  • Spread the word to others – recruit friends, neighbours, colleagues and local organisations for their support
  • Enter our ‘Visions for Guildford’ photo competition with pictures of places in other towns and cities which have inspired you
  • Contact us to find out ways we can help you – for example have a member of our Group talk to your community or organisation.

Tell your local councillors that you want them to adopt the Guildford Vision Group’s proposals for delivering the Town Centre Masterplan. You can find out who the councillors are for your ward, together with their contact details here.

Then all you need to do is send them an email saying you want them to ensure the new crossing proposed by the Guildford Vision Group is adopted by the Council so that traffic and all its dangers are removed from the town centre and new homes, pedestrianisation and the riverside square are created to benefit residents and visitors.

Please copy us in on your email by putting our email address in the CC section – .

And that’s it – that’s one simple thing you can do to play an active part in making Guildford a better place for you, your children and future generations.

Thank you.

Make sure your friends, neighbours, relatives and colleagues know what is happening.

Please encourage them to get involved and send them a link to this website so that they can find out more for themselves and also write to their borough councillors.

Our ‘Visions for Guildford’ Photo Competition is a chance for you to share places you have visited which you have found inspiring.

It may be the Spanish Steps in Rome, the Millennium Bridge in London or simply a feature in a town you feel is inspiring – such as a market square, fountain or play area – and you would like to see in Guildford.

Whatever it may be all you need to do is send us your photo in jpeg format to (specific email address, eg together with a brief description of where it is and why you are nominating it together, of course, with your contact details by (date).
