Outline plan for Weyside Urban Village.

Proposals for Phase Three of Weyside Urban Village are to be presented this month.

Guildford Borough Council is holding an exhibition and says: “Everyone is welcome!”

The exhibition is to be held on Thursday, September 21 2023, from 4pm to 8pm at the Aggie Cafe and Social Club, Parsons Green, Bellfields, Guildford GU1 1QY.

The proposed phase three development is to be located to the south of Weyside Urban Village. In July 2023, planning approval was granted for 81 new homes for Phase One.

A council statement says: “Phase Three will form an important gateway into the new community. The proposals will provide around 175 homes of different tenures in a mix of houses and apartments.  The new homes will become the Heritage Quarter of Weyside Urban Village.

“They will draw on the rich architectural character of the existing Pump House building. It will be kept and celebrated within a new landscaped public space.”

GBC says it wants to give everyone a chance to see the current proposals and talk to the design team.

A council spokesperson said: “We’ll be on hand to answer questions, collect your comments and update you on the progress we’ve been making on site.

“After the exhibition, we’ll review the proposals taking into account the comments received. We will submit a detailed planning application in autumn 2023.”

For those unable to attend the exhibition from 8pm on Thursday, September 21 to 5pm on Friday, September 29 2023 it can be viewed and comments made at:

According to GBC: “The new Urban Village will be a green and thriving community alongside the River Wey. It will have 1,500 new homes, of which 40 per cent will be affordable. New green spaces and play areas, employment space and a commercial centre will be created.
