Welcome to our website which aims to provide you with information on Ashill Land Ltd (Ashill) and McCarthy & Stone’s proposals to redevelop land at the former Greenfield School, Brooklyn Road, Woking with Retirement Living Plus (Extra Care) accommodation.
As you may be aware Greenfield School relocated to Old Woking Road in September 2019, and subsequently sold its site to Ashill in 2020 to help fund the new site and its improvements. Greenfield School’s new site provides enhanced accessibility, enables the school to cater for a significantly increased number of pupils, employ more staff, and offer community facilities, including a new Nursery for the under twos.
Ashill felt that this important site presented an excellent opportunity to provide much-needed specialist retirement housing. As a result, it has entered a partnership with market leaders in the sector, McCarthy & Stone, to ensure the development of this vacant site makes a positive contribution to the local neighbourhood.
As part of our commitment to community engagement, we have commenced a community consultation programme to inform local people of our proposals. Because of social distancing restrictions in place due to Covid-19, the consultation programme will be directed towards digital and postal formats.
The virtual public exhibition will allow local people to view our proposals and provide us with feedback on the plans before we submit a full planning application. Our exhibition will be available on 6 February until 20 February 2021 and all materials displayed on the exhibition will be available to download from this website.
We welcome your feedback. You can let us know your thoughts via the contact us page.
If you have any other questions or comments at this early stage, you can also contact us via the project’s freephone information line on 0800 298 7040.
