Land adjacent to Surbiton Station Proposed Redevelopment


The exhibition boards PDF is here and the online consultation form here


Proposals have been announced to redevelop the car park at the rear of Surbiton station (along with other changes in the main station area). The developers are running a consultation and say:

Solum, a partnership between Kier Property and Network Rail who look to unlock regeneration, housing and passenger experience improvements around stations. Our homes help to improve station developments, with over 50% of profits being reinvested back into the railway, enabling more connected living. We are currently delivering seven schemes on brownfield sites across England including Guildford and Twickenham. Our schemes encourage sustainable transport and ease over development in the local countryside and greenbelt sites. By reimagining the role of railway stations and their surrounding areas, Solum is transforming outer-city living. From our apartment interiors to the station environments we create, quality is everything.

Regeneration plans for the land adjacent to Surbiton station have been unveiled and we want to hear the views of local residents and businesses.

The plans will deliver high-quality affordable homes for local families, a new 250 space multi-storey car park (MSCP), improved accessibility throughout the site, a refurbished Southern Ticket Hall and improved station forecourts on the north and south station entrances.

We will respond in due course but it is clear the proposed massing with a 17 storey tower and a visually overwhelming over-developed site is entirely inappropriate for the area.
