Our Vision

The development of this site presents a real opportunity to revitalise and support the town centre economy whilst delivering new green spaces and providing a diverse range of amenities to serve the local community for many years to come.

Our proposals will seek to:

  • Deliver a range of tailored housing options that support families, individuals and students.
  • Deliver a new riverside park, with a range of planting and seating for local people to enjoy.
  • Integrate at least 20% biodiversity net gain with new planting that is suitable for ecological riverside habitats.
  • Bring social value through new and inclusive amenities, serving existing and emerging communities with an active ground level, potentiality offering co-working space and places to socialise.
  • Provide enhanced permeability through the site by connecting the town, University and the riverside with new walkable routes.
  • Build a future-proof sustainable development, incorporating energy-efficient building solutions and systems to be installed to support long term use and building flexibility, should local needs and demand evolve.
  • Create inviting landscapes and spaces which are accessible to all.
  • Provide ongoing short-term and long-term employment for the town on-site. 
  • Protect the site from flooding aligned with Guildford Council’s Strategy and take every opportunity to assist with flood alleviation (i.e. increased permeability, flood capacity) for the wider area.
