On behalf of EcoWorld London, our planning team based in London has submitted a full planning application for the redevelopment of a key gateway site in Woking town centre.
The proposed residential-led, mixed-use scheme comprises of five buildings on parcels of land both north and south of Goldsworth Road, totalling 1.15 ha. The proposals will provide for 965 new homes, a range of flexible ground floor commercial uses (A1-A4, B1(a) and D1/D2), a replacement establishment for the existing Woking Railway Athletic Club and a new purpose-built homeless shelter for the York Road Project.
The scheme follows detailed pre-applications discussions with statutory and non-statutory consultees, including the Council, Design South East, Surrey County Council Highways and Network Rail, as well as neighbouring and existing on-site businesses. We led the client through the planning process, advising on challenging issues throughout, including tall buildings and associated considerations such as aviation, telecommunications, glare, wind and the impact on key views. Other issues advised on included the loss of on-site employment, site accessibility and re-location of existing tenants.
