Although Guildford has been honoured with its own Monopoly board, there are big changes afoot in nearby Woking.
Plans to deliver 560 new apartments across three landmark buildings in Woking have been given the green light after borough councillors voted to approve planning on the scheme. Our client Prime Place will develop the towers, designed by Rolfe Judd architects at 17, 25 and 34 storeys in height, on Goldsworth Road, close to the town centre and mainline train station with fast access to London.
The development, a major catalyst for the further regeneration of this part of Woking that will follow, will also include 10,000 square metres of new office space along with public realm improvements, retail space and new leisure facilities.
Prime Place Managing Director Brian Brady said: “We’re delighted that Woking Borough Councillors have approved our vision for the regeneration of Goldsworth Road. It will provide much needed new homes and office space for Woking and bring an attractive outdoor space to the area around Goldsworth Road which all local residents and visitors can make full use of. It underlines our ambition to be recognised for delivering vibrant new homes, communities and places.”
Commenting on the approval, Henry Lamprecht, associate director at Prime Place’s planning advisors Curtin & Co said: “The response that we have received from the local community towards the regeneration of Goldsworth Road has been really positive. Since the start of 2016 we have undertaken several consultation events in Woking Town Centre, and have been delighted with the interest this has generated from local residents. These proposals will greatly regenerate the area around Goldsworth Road, and we are delighted to have played a part in helping Prime Place to secure this consent.”
