It appears from Surrey Live press reports that the development of Guildford Station East side begins on the 28th October.
GVG is disappointed that this major development is going ahead, despite many objections. We believe the Station should be redeveloped; but in a properly planned manner. Apart from 400 plus flats, the Solum Development provides little of value to the town and its supporting infrastructure (Roads, Public Facilities etc).
The opportunity presented by the railway station site to create a new Transport Interchange and Vibrant Quarter for the town is being lost to short term commercial considerations.
Undaunted, GVG is re-appraising it’s proposals for the Town Centre to encompass Solum and other potential changes in the Town Centre. GVG and will be proposing updated ideas in the new year which we hope will provide a input to the Town Centre Plan that we urge the council to develop with vigour and in good time. We need to protect the Town Centre from another planning disaster.
