Plans set out for new £150 million retail development in Woking

A public consultation is to be launched this week on plans for a new 125,000 sq ft retail development in Woking.

The proposed Victoria Square scheme will comprise of new retail floor space anchored by a 60,000 sq ft Marks & Spencer store, a new Boots, plus a four star hotel with conference facilities, spa and gym, new residential apartments, additional car parking, and two new public plazas. 

The Victoria Square development site will cover the former Woking Market, the former Post Office, Globe House, Woking Fire Station, Bandstand Square civic space, a number of existing retail units, and some of the surrounding road network.

The scheme is being led by Bandstand Square Developments, a joint venture between Moyallen, Surrey County Council and Woking Borough Council.

Councillor John Kingsbury, Leader of Woking Borough Council, commented: “These exciting redevelopment proposals to create Victoria Square will positively transform this part of Woking town centre and deliver a high quality mixed use development anchored by Marks & Spencer. It will include a number of improvements that will benefit local people as well as attracting important investment into the town.”

Peter Robinson from Moyallen added: ”Working closely with our development partners Woking Borough Council and Surrey County Council, we invite all members of the public with an interest in the site to come along and view our proposals. The feedback received will be collated, considered and, where appropriate, incorporated into the development proposals.”

The news follows the opening last month of TopShop’s expanded store in Woking. At 5,966 sq ft, the new TopShop is a third larger than the brand’s previous store in the town. In addition, Patisserie Valerie is to open a 2,050 sq ft café in Wolsey Place this autumn.
