New bus station part of council plans to redevelop North Street in Guildford

Published by the Eagle Radio News Team at 7:07pm 19th February 2020.

Guildford Borough Council have revealed details of plans for the regeneration of an area of North Street in the town centre.

The redevelopment is expected to include a new bus station, public squares and green spaces.

In addition the site, which was once home to Guildford’s Friary Brewery, could see its brewing traditions revived through the developer’s vision to create a new micro-brewery.

The proposals are set to include a mix of new homes, including affordable housing.

As well as a new bus station, the road network around the site is set to be reconfigured to improve conditions for pedestrians and cyclists.

Leader of the Council, Cllr Caroline Reeves said:

"Redeveloping this site has been our long-term ambition and working alongside St Edward Homes gives us the opportunity to realise this.

"They will use public engagement and the concept of placemaking to ensure the area is inspirational and full of vitality capturing the needs and aspirations of residents, businesses and visitors while reflecting and enhancing our beautifully historic town.

"Their focus on addressing climate change through development aligns with the Council’s priorities."
