The model on display at the exhibition of the North Street proposal.

I have viewed in person the large-scale model for North Street Regeneration which includes an 11-storey housing development coloured in light grey at the corner of Leapale Road and the current exit to the bus station exit  (it is proposed to change to both in and out entrance /exit at the same location on Woodbridge Road, questionable in my view).

I  would recommend Guildford residents view the model itself at Dominion House tomorrow Wednesday, August 17, 5-8 pm – the final scheduled viewing of the current phase for consultation.

The model and further detail of the proposed development can be seen at:

www.northstreetregeneration.co.uk.

The planning application has now been validated. Details available at: Planning and building control – Guildford Borough Council.

    My cry for an integrated transport system has landed on deaf ears, yet again.

      Mine too! I did humbly offer solutions but the councils have apparently made up their minds and have stopped listening.

      There is no money apparently and yet St Edwards is spending £10 miilion to refurbish the bus station and other traffic modification work. They say as a result that they are unable to provide “affordable” homes.

      If the bus station stays with altered entry and exit, I would not be surprised if tailbacks around York Road roundabout become a daily occurrence, similar to that experienced in the gyratory.

      I wonder what marvel will be built in the “prime” Bedford Road surface car park site that developers must be queuing up for at the door of GBC. Would £10 million have helped to achieve that?
