West Byfleet Neighbourhood Plan

The West Byfleet Neighbourhood Plan (WBNP) has been prepared by the West Byfleet Neighbourhood Forum for the West Byfleet Neighbourhood Area. If the WBNP becomes part of the Local Plan for Woking it will be used to determine planning applications locally, and will therefore play an important role in helping to achieve sustainable development in the Borough.
