The North Street site in Guildford Site is to the east of the Friary and currently in most part is vacant land beside the bus station. It has been vacant for many years.
Today 4-12-2020 a press release signalling the start of consultation on the site has been released:
St Edward, a joint venture between the Berkeley Group and M&G Investments, will be sharing early ideas for the delivery of a new bus station, high quality new homes, a mixture of flexible commercial spaces and fantastic new public realm on the site.
St Edward will be hosting a series of online sessions, starting at 6pm on the 14th December for people to listen in and ask questions to the team, including the developer’s architects JTP. You must register on the website of the developers details in next paragraph. The session will also be recorded and posted on their dedicated website for those unable to attend the live meeting.
Viewers will be able to register for events and see plans, ideas and proposals at www.northstreetregeneration.co.uk as well as sign up to newsletters for information updates.
The community will be invited to feed into these early ideas, and input into the designs as they progress in detail throughout the planning process.
With the restrictions around the pandemic likely to be in place for some time, St Edward will be focussing the consultation online through a series of interactive events until it is safe to commence face-to-face consultation.
The full press release can be seen below.
