Application Submitted For extension to The Meads in Farnborough town centre
St Modwen, owner of The Meads shopping centre in the heart of Farnborough, has submitted a planning application to Rushmoor Borough Council to transform a key site in the town centre.
Following a public consultation held in the shopping centre in November last year, the plans look to redevelop the land between Kingsmead and Queensmead. The development will feature 30,000 sq ft of new shopping, 24,000 sq ft of leisure, 68 apartments with a communal garden, parking and a bridge link to the previously completed car park above The Gym.
Philip Robins, HEAD OF MAJOR PROJECTS (South-East) at St Modwen said: “The feedback from the public exhibition in November was very positive. The community was keen to see new restaurants and shops, as well as additional parking. The design was also welcomed and local people were pleased to see the empty land being utilised. The site is a key element within our multi-million-pound regeneration of Farnborough town centre, and we are pleased to have reached the milestone of submitting an application.”
