Specific permission for upgrade of foot to joint foot / cycle paths will not be granted; if that would prejudice established or proposed pedestrian routes or pedestrian priority schemes. The provision of foot paths and cycle paths and joint foot/ cycle ways will be strongly encouraged as part of all new developments, such that they are separate from road space for motor vehicles whenever possible. Guildford Borough Council and Surrey County Council are encouraged to request from the developer an appropriate financial contribution towards the provision of such infrastructure through S106/CIL mechanisms where the planning merits justify such provision.
The above policy reflects the concern of residents for conflict between motor vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians, who do not always respect each other’s space, as evidenced in our Survey
