Green light for new residential landmarks in Woking

Willmott Residential’s plans to deliver 560 new apartments across three landmark buildings in Woking have been given the green light after borough councillors voted to approve planning on the scheme.

The company’s residential development brand Prime Place will develop the towers, designed by Rolfe Judd architects at 17, 25 and 34 storeys in height, on Goldsworth Road, close to the town centre and mainline train station with fast access to London. The developmentwill also include 10,000 square metres of new office space along with public realm improvements, retail space and new leisure facilities.

It adds to the company’s existing pipeline of developing homes for sale through Prime Place and build to rent through Be:here, with 7,500 units in construction or pending development.

Speaking after planning was awarded in Woking, Willmott Residential chief executive Nic Simpkin said: “We’re delighted that Woking Borough Councillors have approved Prime Place’s vision for the regeneration of Goldsworth Road. It will provide much needed new homes and office space for Woking and bring an attractive outdoor space to the area around Goldsworth Road which all local residents and visitors can make full use of. It underlines our ambition to be recognised for delivering vibrant new homes, communities and places.”

Commenting on the approval, Henry Lamprecht, associate director at Prime Place’s planning advisors Curtin&Co said: “The response that we have received from the local community towards the regeneration of Goldsworth Road has been really positive. Since the start of 2016 we have undertaken several consultation events in Woking Town Centre, and have been delighted with the interest this has generated from local residents. These proposals will greatly regenerate the area around Goldsworth Road, and we are delighted to have played a part in helping Prime Place to secure this consent.”
