North Street Regeneration – Public exhibitions

Logo

North Street Regeneration: Visit our exhibition

I hope you were able to attend our public webinar regarding the regeneration of North Street. If not, you will soon be able to view a recording of the session on our website.

We’re also writing to let you know that we’re hosting an exhibition about the project during August, at Dominion House, Woodbridge Road, Guildford, Surrey, GU1 4PU.

There will be drop-in sessions for people to pop in, when St Edward will be joined by architects JTP and other project consultants. Registration isn’t necessary, people can come along and meet the team, look at the plans and ask questions:

Saturday 6th August 10am-2pm

Wednesday 10th August 5pm-8pm

Wednesday 17th August 5pm-8pm

Alternatively, the St Edward team will be available at Dominion House for one-to-one appointments and closed meetings if you’d like to arrange this. Appointments are available 9am-5pm on weekdays, with Saturday appointments available 10am-2pm on 13th and 20th August.

St Edward’s vision for North Street is to bring this underutilised, brownfield town centre site back to life by delivering new spaces to eat, shop, visit, live, meet and play, in high quality buildings and surrounded by beautiful public spaces.

The Friary Quarter will have a varied architectural approach and its own character, whilst respecting the heritage of its surroundings. It will be a contemporary new neighbourhood for Guildford and a new chapter in the town’s rich history.

This development will set a new benchmark for sustainability with gas-free energy, all electric charging car park, planting over 120 new trees, 10% improvement in air quality, 72% reduction in CO2 emissions and a 201% net biodiversity gain.

We have committed to delivering a striking new bus interchange and the pedestrianisation of North Street, creating a safer, more welcoming, environment for shoppers, residents, and visitors.

You can continue to visit www.northstreetregeneration.co.uk for information regarding the project. It is being updated throughout August with new information.

Please email Lisa Flounders at info@housegroup.co.uk if you’d like to book a meeting

With best wishes

The St Edward team

Anti-social Behaviour Wood Street Village Green

Over recent months, there have been further instances of vehicles causing damage to Wood Street Village Green.  The vehicles appear to enter the Green where there is a low kerb.

Worplesdon Parish Council leases Wood Street Village Green from Surrey County Council on a long lease (until May 2073).

The Parish Council has been asked by some local residents to install physical restrictions to prevent further damage to the Green.

Before any decisions are taken Worplesdon Parish Council seeks to find out your views on the matter and the suggested measures to minimise further anti-social behaviour.

The possible actions would be:

  1. Leave the Green as it is.
  2. Install a line of wooden posts to the western edge (White Hart Lane side) of the Green, plus security gates or drop-down bollards for access during events, as well as to facilitate maintenance of the Green, trees, maypole, and village sign (Surrey County Council has consented to this proposal, which does not require the consent of the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (s38 Commons Act 2006)).
  3. Wooden posts to the entire perimeter of the Green plus security gates or drop-down bollards. This would require the consent of both the Secretary of State (s38 Commons Act 2006) as well as Surrey County Council
  4. The installation of a bund (grass bank) plus security gates or drop-down bollards. This would require the consent of both the Secretary of State (s38 Commons Act 2006) and Surrey County Council.

To that end, the Parish Council will be facilitating a public meeting on the Green on 20 June 2022 at 7.15pm.

Worplesdon Parish Council looks forward to seeing you at the meeting. If you are unable to attend, or have an alternative suggestion, please make your views known to the Parish Council by sending an email or comment to clerk@worplesdon-pc.gov.uk or to your parish councillor.

Alternatively, please complete the slip below and return it to the Parish Council by email or to Unit 2 Saxton, Parklands, Railton Road, Guildford, Surrey, GU2 9JX by midnight on 20 June 2022.
