Client: Bouygues Development
Scheme: 213 dwellings, 7,000 sq m of retail, cinema and hotel
Nexus planning has prepared and submitted a detailed planning application for the comprehensive mixed use redevelopment, spread over two phases, of a large site in Addlestone town centre. The site is predominantly owned by Runnymede Borough Council and the applicant (Bouygues Development) has entered into a development agreement with the Council to bring forward this ambitious scheme.
Nexus has worked very closely with the applicant to co-ordinate a consistent approach on a wide range of planning issues. These include the interrelated matters of air quality, transport and noise, in a constrained urban area. This has been against the background of a tight timetable for the client to start construction to meet their corporate objectives.
The planning application is supported by an environmental statement, which has been prepared by Nexus Planning, which covers socioeconomic, transport and air quality impacts.
The development will deliver many significant regeneration benefits to Addlestone and will invigorate and revitalise the town centre. These will include enhancing retail and leisure provision, increasing spending by new residents and hotel guests, delivering much needed housing, and providing a high quality public realm with a new permeable street network.
Construction work is due to start in early 2015.
