Guildford Borough is located in west Surrey, and borders Hampshire in the west, and Surrey boroughs of Mole Valley, Surrey Heath, Waverley, Elmbridge and Woking. It is Surrey’s most populous borough with an estimated population of 146,845 in 2016. The Borough is the second largest district in the county in terms of area, covering approximately 104 square miles (269 square kilometres).

The two principal urban areas are the town of Guildford and the urban area of Ash and Tongham in the west of the borough. Approximately half of the borough’s population live in the town of Guildford. Outside of the urban areas, 89% of the borough is designated as green belt. The southern part lies within the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the borough also contains special protection areas, special areas of conservation, sites of special scientific interest and nonstatutory designations of sites of nature conservation importance and local nature reserves.

Guildford town centre has a thriving commercial centre both day and night. The night-time economy is vibrant and has a far reaching reputation drawing visitors from all over the South East. Alcohol and drug use can cause health and safety concerns and anti-social behaviour (ASB). ASB occurring from the night-time economy is a challenge for all local key partners and residents.
