The leader of Guildford Borough Council (GBC) has failed to reveal what he said to an event held in Guildford on Monday (November 6th, 2017) for potential developers. The event was called: “Guildford and Surrey Development Plans 2017” and was organised by Built Environment Networking (BE).

It has been confirmed by BE that Cllr Spooner attended and spoke at the event.

The Guildford Dragon NEWS asked him, through the communications team at GBC:

1. What will be your objectives at the event, what will your message be?
2. Does it not matter that you will be sharing a platform with Keir, part of the Solum partnership, just days before their planning appeal hearing starts?

Cllr Paul Spooner

A member of the communications team has confirmed that the message was passed on to the leader but the team had received no response.

Event organisers said of the event: “…our November conference in Guildford brings to light some significant development opportunities and some of the markets leading players to share with you their key schemes and plans for the future.”

“Surrey County Council and Guildford Council [sic] will set the scene on the frameworks and schemes that are on their radar and Surrey will highlight the bigger picture as far as the county is concerned.”
