Plans to modernise Redhill Station and build new flats and shops have been submitted to the Council for approval.

The proposals promise improvements to the station itself, including new ticket halls at both entrances, a larger concourse, a new public square, and lifts to give step-free access to platforms.

This will all be funded by development on the existing station car park, alongside Ladbroke Road and Princess Way.

Proposals include 150 flats, a 25,000 sq ft Waitrose supermarket (similar in size to the Horley Waitrose) and some smaller shops.

Parking will be moved to the east side of the station, where a new 450-space multistorey car park is proposed on the small car park site next to the Toby Carvery.  A new taxi rank and pick up/drop-off area is also planned at the east entrance, on Redstone Hill.  Apart from a small drop-off area, taxis would disappear from the west entrance.

The developers carried out a public consultation exercise last year and made some amendments to their plans following feedback from residents.  Now the planning application has been submitted, it is important that you feed in your views.

For a summary of the plans and some artists’ impressions of how things would look, you can visit the developers’ website www.redhillforward.co.uk. You can make comments here but be aware this is not part of the official planning process – if you want the planners to take note of your comments you must submit them to the Council as outlined below.
