More homes for Guildford's North Street redevelopment

Published at 10:41am 18th January 2019. (Updated at 10:42am 18th January 2019)

Guildford Borough Council say they are pursuing a "primarily residential-based" approach to the redevelopment of North Street.

The move follows a tough year for the retail sector across the country, which led to a number of store closures in the town.

Councillors say the plans will "provide much-needed homes, along with appropriate retail and leisure opportunities."

Leader of the Council and Lead Councillor for Regeneration, Cllr Paul Spooner, said:

“We are still committed to delivering a high-quality and balanced mix of places for people to live, work and enjoy our thriving town centre.

"Like any sensible Council, we have also looked again at the retail market and both agreed to now progress with a primarily residential-based scheme.

"This will mean changes to the balance of homes, retail and other uses, and I would also like to reassure our residents, businesses and workers that the final detailed plans will include an improved bus station.

“It’s critical that we develop the best possible scheme, in the shortest amount of time, to ensure Guildford continues to be a great place for everyone.”

The project is being delivered in partnership with M&G Real Estate.
