West Byfleet, Surrey
West Byfleet in Surrey is the site for the first of our new sustainable, integrated in-town developments, close to existing amenities and services at the heart of the thriving local community. The £110 million retirement housing-led, mixed-use scheme will offer 196 1 and 2 bedroom apartments for sale and rental. The development will feature top class amenities including a wellness centre, café and restaurant with new public realm encompassing an attractive pedestrianised square enclosed by retail, a new community space and public car park facilities.
The new in-town format with its higher level of amenities and shared community facilities, integrates with existing services and creates wider community links.
This is a cohesive place-making project centred around a new public square at the heart of West Byfleet. A new cluster of independent, convenience, leisure and catering operators on the ground floor, facing the new public square and on to the main roads, will generate vitality and a shared amenities space with the wider community. This will create a community hub and a great lifestyle for residents in an inclusive and lively environment for everyone’s benefit.
The site is located at Old Woking Road, West Byfleet and previously formed the central shopping area of the West Byfleet village. The retirement community will be the new focal point for the compact and well-serviced centre.
A key aspect of the building will be the stunning views across Surrey Hills.
Transport links are excellent with convenient train services approximately 30 minutes into Waterloo just 4 minutes walk away with around 4 services per hour, good local bus services and easy access to motorway network with Junctions 10 and 11 of the M25, just 2 and 3 minutes away respectively.

Shopping, restaurants, services and community uses sit at ground floor to provide for the residents and the wider public. In the square they will spill out with activity to create lively spaces.
