Our vision for 2018-2023
For Guildford to be a town and rural borough...
...that is the most desirable place to live, work and visit in South East England.
We want Guildford to be a centre for education, healthcare, innovative and cutting-edge businesses, high quality retail and wellbeing. A county town set in a vibrant rural environment which balances the needs of urban and rural communities alike. Known for our outstanding urban planning and design, and with infrastructure that will properly cope with our needs.
Guildford Borough Council is the local authority serving a diverse urban and rural community in the heart of Surrey. Borough Councillors and officers work on devolved issues such as parks, leisure, older residents services, youth services, street scene, refuse collection, planning, social housing, homelessness and aspects of business and tourism. The Borough owns and operates significant heritage assets that include monuments such as Guildford Castle, as well museums, art collections and civic regalia. The Council also delivers a significant capital investment programme to renew and improve the Borough through best use of our assets. We are developing an entrepreneurial approach to delivering an innovative income generation model to sustain future services. The Council’s financial plans for the coming years have recently been reviewed by Moody’s who gave us a credit rating of Aa1.
