CREATING A NEW COMMUNITY

With new homes come new facilities and local improvements which could not otherwise be created or sustained. We believe the proposals for Walnut Tree Close can offer a range of benefits for both existing and new residents, including the following:

  • A residential development of up to 191 high quality properties that the district needs, both for existing and future generations
  • One and two bedroom apartments to cater for local needs
  • A scheme that offers properties specifically for rent that are professionally managed and maintained
  • An accessible development by public transport, cycle and foot
  • A sustainable development ideally located within walking and cycling distance of local schools, public transport links and shops, services and facilities the centre of Guildford
  • A development that will complement the emerging residential character of the area
  • A sensitively designed development, with properties sympathetic to the existing character of Guildford, the Conservation Area and adjacent listed buildings
  • A scheme that has been designed with the local area in mind, with communal gardens and enhanced landscaping along the pedestrian path along the River Wey
  • A development that reflects work completed in the Guildford Town Centre and Hinterland Masterplan
  • A scheme that improves the views to and from the site from the conservation area and Dapdune Wharf

Economic Benefits


  • Substantial investment into a predominately vacant, brownfield site to deliver much-needed new homes
  • A knock-on economic boost for Guildford town centre through the additional spend of new residents in local shops and services, helping to sustain jobs and businesses
  • Funds from the government’s New Homes Bonus scheme for Guildford Borough Council to be spent for the benefit of local people, as well as raised council tax revenues for the borough from the new properties
