A plan to transform Caterham and Caterham on the Hill in Surrey over the next decade has been revealed to the public.

The owners of Church Walk Shopping Cente are looking to submit a planning application in Spring 2018. The project is set to include a larger shopping centre, as well as a cinema.

The owner of the former Rose & Young site and Clarion Housing Group (CHG) has exchanged contracts for the sale of the site. CHG has planning permission for 48 homes and a supermarket.

Other key proposals include the creation of a more attractive, pedestrian-friendly area around the station, development of high-specification homes and flexible office space, improvement of Town End and the regeneration of Raglan Precinct.

Councillor Michael Cooper, chairman of the Caterham Town Working Group, said“We have already seen great progress with an exchange of contracts on the Rose and Young site and the owners of Church Walk Shopping Centre are looking to submit a planning application in spring 2018. We now want to hear what residents think about the possibilities for the future of Caterham.”

The draft Caterham town masterplan supplementary planning document, prepared by planning and regeneration consultancy Nexus Planning and commercial property agents Colliers International, was considered by Tandridge District Council’s planning policy committee during the week ending 17 November.

The consultation period will run until 5pm on Monday 22 January 2018.
