Runnymede Borough Council is committed to regenerating the Borough's town centres, as well as improving infrastructure and public facilities in the area. The regeneration of Addlestone Town Centre is already well advanced, and the Council has entered into a development agreement with Places for People to pursue further regeneration schemes including Egham Town Centre and Egham Leisure Centre.
Places for People is one of the UK's largest property development and regeneration companies with a strong track record in building sustainable communities and mixed-use developments.
Addlestone town centre
Addlestone Town Centre is being transformed to provide new shops, a cinema, gym, homes and public spaces. Construction of the £80m Addlestone ONE development is a partnership between Runnymede Borough Council and Bouygues Developments. To find out about this exciting project visit the Addlestone One website.
Egham town centre
The Council is working with its development partner Places for People to bring forward a new cultural quarter in the Station Road North area of Egham Town Centre. Public consultation was undertaken in 2017 and 2018 to give residents and retailers the opportunity to comment on the proposals.
Chertsey town centre
The Council, alongside Surrey County Council, commissioned an independent master plan that identified specific design enhancements and development opportunities for further regeneration. The aim is to increase economic activity, retail and commercial competitiveness while respecting the historic character of the town.
This 2013 work followed the modernisation of the southern part of Chertsey Town Centre in the 1990s. This improved the prosperity of the town and enhanced the environment.
