Caterham plans unveiled

Planning application on the way for Church Walk redevelopment

Ropemaker Properties, the property arm of the BP Pension Fund, has begun consultation on its plans for a comprehensive redevelopment of the 95,000-sq ft Church Walk shopping centre in Caterham, Surrey. The centre would be replaced by a mixed-use scheme incorporating retail, leisure and housing.

The outline proposals comprise a mall of 23 retail units ranging from 807 to 3,358 sq ft leading from Station Avenue, leading to a new public square surrounded by four ‘family dining’ restaurants. A three-screen cinema would sit beneath the retail while above will be 183 build-to-rent apartments on four floors. The new scheme will be served by 550 parking spaces.

A planning application to Tandridge Council is expected in December 2018 with an anticipated start on site in Autumn 2020.

  1. This is precisely the sort of plan which needs to be considered, especially for small towns like Caterham.

    The mix of use, especially with the build to rent capacity, is what I would wish to see as an investor in any aspect of the leisure market in leafy north east Surrey.

    Let us hope that Tandridge DC are brave enough to support it.
