The design of the two blocks has been carefully considered to provide a visual link between the existing buildings to either side. The blocks will be predominantly two storeys in height, with Block 2 having a partial third floor stepped back from the main footprint of the building.
This project takes a brownfield site of limited amenity value and repurposes it with an exciting new development. It will provide a contribution towards Guildford Borough Council's housing obligations under the National Planning Policy Framework and will result in the significant visual improvement of the location.
