Redhill regeneration – a town worth investing in
The town centre of Redhill is being transformed by the significant investment from public and private sector initiatives.
Reigate & Banstead Borough Council have been proactive and are working with commercial developers to regenerate strategic sites within the town. A new £50m redevelopment of Redhill station has been approved by the council which will be anchored by a new 25,000 sq ft Waitrose store, additional retail and also the development of 150 new homes. The station will have 450 new car parking spaces to complete the regeneration.
A new Sainsbury’s store has been completed at the prominent, Warwick Quadrant development. This also includes 560 new car parking spaces, a Travelodge hotel and gym together with the redevelopment of the existing Harlequin Theatre and Redhill Library.
In addition, the Marketfield Way redevelopment has commenced to provide a new multi-screen cinema, new restaurants, shops, leisure and office uses on the ground and first floors. 150 new one and two bedroomed homes are to be privately rented and a landscaped new pedestrian route, flanked by shops and restaurants, linking the High Street to Marketfield Way. This is due to complete in summer 2022.
This investment into the town centre will enhance Redhill’s location as an affluent commuter centre, and will help retain existing employers whilst attracting new high-profile occupiers to the town.
Grosvenor House will be a joy to work in, as well as a place we can be proud to bring customers into. After the last 12 months, where we have all been home working, it will be a hugely welcome change, allowing us to socialise and work together as teams again.
