A £250 million revamp of a Woking estate is supported

The Woking Borough Council’s planning committee have approved the first phase of the Sheerwater estate regeneration scheme.

The £250 million regeneration of the Sheerwater estate plans to develop just under 1,000 new homes.

The estate was built after the Second World War as an overspill development. It occupies an area of Woking which is in-between West Byfleet golf course and the Basingstoke Canal.

The master plan includes the proposed demolition of 500 existing properties to be replaced with 984 new homes, 91% of which will be family sized houses and 62 of which will be assisted living units.

Included in the scheme is:

  • Retail floor space of around 1650 square meters,
  • A community and youth centre,
  • A nursery,
  • A health centre,
  • A new sports centre with a pool and gym.

In the first phase of the development 92 of the 1,000 new homes will be developed as well as the sports centre.

HTA Design LLP have created the master plan, and the borough council and its partner New Vision Homes have developed the scheme itself. The locals have divided opinions on the perks the scheme will bring to the area, which does still need signing off by the whole council.
