Have your say about plans to improve Oxted

Visit our exhibition

Come and view the exhibition in the Council offices at any time during opening hours from 25 May to 23 June.

The exhibition will include new initial designs for the Urban Redesign project in Station Road East and West, along with designs for the development of the Oxted gasholder site. There will be survey forms for comments on both of these projects, as well as information about the next steps for the provision of additional parking and business start-up and office space.

More about the programme

Regeneration Oxted aims to create a vibrant town centre to benefit the whole community. Comprising four key projects, the programme will create more local jobs, boost the town’s retail and evening economy, encourage new businesses and create more car parking for all.

The programme is being delivered by Tandridge District Council, working in partnership with Surrey County Council and the Oxted Business Improvement District (BID), supported by a mixture of public and private funding.

1. The Oxted gasholder

The future removal of the gasholder is progressing and the Council continues to meet regularly with owners SGN and National Grid and their development partner, St William.

A planning application for residential development on the site will come forward over the summer. The project will deliver a double benefit – not only will it facilitate the removal of the eyesore which has dominated the town for decades, it will also provide much needed additional housing.

2. The Urban Redesign Project

Oxted Parking Review

Another key part of the programme is to enhance the look of Station Road East and West to make the town a more attractive place for shoppers. The brainchild of the Oxted BID and supported by the Council, this Urban Redesign project will help boost the town’s retail and evening economies.

Attracting more visitors will help support existing businesses and encourage new ones. Residents will be able to have their say about the plans which will be based on the conceptual designs prepared for the Oxted BID by designers Greer Pritchard, whose portfolio includes the 2012 Olympic Park site.

3. More car parking capacity

Plans to redevelop the town take into account recent car parking review findings, which show the town centre doesn’t have enough spaces for local businesses and shoppers and that enforcement needs to be improved.

Residents will be able to have their say about proposals to provide additional capacity on Council owned sites in the town which could see around 40% more spaces created for visitors, shoppers and local businesses. We are looking at a number of options including multi-storey, underground and park and ride.

Providing easy access to car parking spaces will help make the town a more attractive place for people to visit and spend time in, which in turn will help our local economy.

4. Help for small businesses

Businesses are an important part of our town, but we know finding affordable, flexible office space is a major challenge for small businesses, often preventing them from growing and forcing them out of the area. We will look at options to help business get a footing by investigating town centre opportunities for business start-ups and office space.

Get involved

Public consultation is a crucial part of helping inform the plans, so please check this page regularly and stay up to date with news. This will be the first of a number of opportunities to get involved and have your say.
