Woking redevelopment work continues

The next phase of Woking's ongoing redevelopment process has been outlined by developers, reports.

Woking is in the process of a £4 million regeneration project which will see the town centre transformed into a much more modern, thriving area. Now, attention is set to be given to Commercial Way, with pedestrian boulevards and new restaurants set to transform the central street.

Planners have outlined their aim of extending work already undertaken in Jubilee Square, which would see an open, expansive pedestrian boulevard built. This would be flanked by new restaurants and office space taken from the area currently owned by Batemans Opticians and Esquires café.

It is hoped the new "Arctic white" finish would give the area a much fresher feel and solve the recent complaints which described it as having "dark shopfronts under a heavy canopy with black brick walls".

The move would also, developers claim, act as a "gateway to Wolsey Place" for anyone making the journey to Woking via the railway station.

Whilst redevelopment work is causing minor disruptions to the area, it is hoped the finished article would not only make for a more attractive town centre but also send prospective buyers and renters to the letting agents Woking has to offer as desirability soars.

Commenting on the operation, joint chief executive of the Ambassador Theatre Group, Rosemary Squire, told "It is very exciting to be part of the extensive changes taking place in Woking, the town where the Ambassador Theatre Group all began.

"The redevelopment of Commercial Way will give the opportunity for more space at our head office and with the continued expansion of the company, including the recent acquisition of our 40th venue on Broadway, this additional space will be most welcome."
