Sheerwater Regeneration to begin with £26m leisure complex

It has been announced that new leisure facilities will be the first part of the Sheerwater Redevelopment Scheme to be built.

At a meeting of Woking Borough Council on Thursday (5 April), councillors voted to release £26 million of funds to development partner Thameswey Developments Ltd.

This decision marks the beginning of the Sheerwater Regeneration Scheme.

Construction will start on the grounds of Bishop David Brown School starting in July on the new leisure and recreation facilities.

They will feature a leisure centre with a five court sports hall, studio spaces and gym, as well as a 25-metre swimming pool and separate teaching pool.

Outside, the complex will host a high quality full size 3G football pitch and new grass football and rugby pitches.

In addition, new parking arrangements will increase the number of spaces available, and ground source heat pumps and solar panels will provide low carbon sustainable energy.

A Community Use Agreement will ensure the leisure complex is available for use by both the local community and school.

Speaking after the Council meeting, Cllr David Bittleston, Leader of Woking Borough Council, said: "Finally, this evening's significant decision marks the beginning of the transformation of Sheerwater.

"Whilst many were sceptical, we have kept our commitment to prioritise the leisure and recreation facilities in the development, thereby building a better Sheerwater that is both tangible and real to local residents.

"The leisure complex is the first exciting step towards the regeneration of Sheerwater, creating the building blocks for a modern, sustainable, 21st century community where people will want to live and bring up families for years to come."

Thameswey Developments Ltd has recently submitted its enhanced hybrid planning application.

If approved, the scheme will see up to 1,200 new homes built, of which 47 per cent will be affordable, and an increase in the amount of open green space by 12 per cent to 10.48 hectares.
