Welcome to Victoria Square, Woking.
Following consultation undertaken in 2013 Bandstand Square Developments Ltd (BSDL) have now submitted two major planning applications for the redevelopment of the western part of town centre to deliver a new fire station and Victoria Square, a comprehensive, retail led mixed use development.
The Victoria Square proposals deliver 10, 967sqm of new retail floorspace anchored by Marks & Spencer; a 190 bed four star hotel with conference facilities, spa and gym in a 21 storey tower; 392 residential apartments in two towers of 28 and 34 storeys; space for a medical centre; 380 additional car parking spaces, and two new public plazas. The redevelopment also provides the opportunity to change the way pedestrians and cars move around this part of the town centre through the realignment of Cawsey Way and the change of the High Street to one way only. The proposal will mark another exciting step forward for Woking building on the success of the other recent projects in the town centre.
The first phase of construction is to begin later in 2014 with Marks and Spencer scheduled to be open for business in 2018
The new fire station is also proposed on Goldsworth Road, larger than the existing, with residential units above, which will be delivered prior to the decommissioning of the existing facility.
