Guildford Residents Associations
Guildford Residents Associations

Welcome to GRA


GRA’s thoughts are with all residents at this challenging time.  We greatly appreciate all that is being done to support us by all key workers in Guildford, including by our Council.    


The Coordination Group is continuing to meet via teleconference and GRA will hold a full meeting and AGM in this way if the lock down continues.


Many Residents Associations have established Covid 19 support networks for streets within their area using various social media.  These have been greatly appreciated by residents and have helped to identify who needs a helping hand with things like shopping while following government guidelines on isolation and distancing.  Simple acts of kindness are making all the difference in the face of the coronavirus outbreak.


We look forward to being able to meet again in person.

Stay safe

Amanda, Jennie, Keith and Richard

GRA Coordination Group



Guildford Residents Association (GRA) aims to bring together residents associations and parish councils from across the borough to share ideas and information and provide a collective voice on matters that we feel are important to the community, such as the Local Plan.  GRA was formed in 2012.


GRA membership consists of 25 residents associations (RAs) and parish councils who support the GRA's statement of residents , "Aspirations for Guildford". The "Aspirations" paper is also supported by the Guildford Society and CPRE. Membership of GRA is open to all RAs and parish councils in the borough who support our Aspirations paper. GRA is apolitical.


Our vision is for all Guildford residents to enjoy a good quality of life in a healthy, enriching environment within caring communities. Achieving this requires Guildford to:

  • cherish its market town legacy, garden suburbs and downland setting
  • encourage innovative, sustainable development of its high added value economy, building on Guildford’s current strengths and correcting its weaknesses.
