Local Benefits

Access icon


Permeability and accessibility for the local area are key aspects of the scheme, with new routes and spaces unlocking pedestrian connections across the site and linking Bury St to Portsmouth Road. The new east/west route will pass through a new central courtyard space that is designed to host communal outdoor events and activities.

Affordable homes icon

Affordable homes

A commitment to deliver on-site affordable homes that are fully integrated into the scheme and offer flexible accommodation to meet the needs of local key workers and others who are priced out of the private rental sector.

Green space icon

Green space

A central, landscaped courtyard is located at the heart of the design and draws inspiration from the rich mix of formal and informal green spaces that characterise the surrounding streets. A mix of soft edges, threshold screening and new tree planting will enhance ecology and create spaces for meeting and outdoor work and play.

Sustainability icon


Guildford’s policy requires that new developments achieve a 20% reduction in carbon emissions compared to standards set out in government building regulations. It also requires that at least 10% of this reduction be achieved through the use of on-site low or zero-carbon technologies.
