Following a referendum, the Farnham Neighbourhood Plan 2013-2031 was 'made' (adopted) by Waverley Borough Council on 28 July 2017. This now forms part of the development plan and can be viewed on our interactive map.
The document sets out a vision for the future of the town council area and planning policies that will be used to determine planning applications locally. The plan was subject to public consultation and an independent examination.
