18th December 2014

The reference number shown above concerns a BIG planning application , in fact the  BIGGEST  ever seen in Guildford and one that  has vital consequences for our town.

It has been submitted by Solum Regeneration ( a partnership between Network Rail and Keir ) for a new station for Guildford and other site developments to include :
 

  • Revised station facilities
  • High rise towers  to include 445 residential dwellings
  • Office space for financial and professional services
  • Retail outlets
  • Food drink and leisure facilities
  • Car parking etc.

To assist with their public engagement, Solum are inviting responses to a flyer that has been delivered to some local residents and will also be holding public exhibitions on:

  • Monday 12th January between 2 pm and 8 pm at the YMCA, Bridge St.
  • Thursday 15th January between 5.30 and 8.30pm at the YMCA
  • Saturday 17th January between 10 am and 3 pm at The Guildhall

The planning application is a complex document; it needs careful study. In advance of the public displays, Solum’s planning statement,  other documentation, drawings, photographic and viewpoint projections can be seen by visiting the Planning section of Guildford Borough Councils website .  click here :
