Planning application for Church Walk, Caterham re-development

A planning application has been submitted for the re-development of Church Walk in Caterham. It is available to view at using the application reference 2019/145. The proposed development would replace the existing Church Walk shopping centre, while keeping the Morrisons supermarket.

The proposed multi-use development includes:

  • Shop, cafe and restaurant units.
  • A three screen cinema.
  • Improved public areas and a town square in front of Morrisons supermarket.
  • Extending and upgrading the current car park and bicycle provision.
  • A new frontage onto Station Avenue. 
  • 178 one and two bedroom apartments.

The plans submitted by Ropemaker Properties Ltd have been drawn up following significant consultation, including events for residents, a public exhibition in Church Walk, meetings with councillors and parish councils, as well as members of the Caterham Business Improvement District (BID).

We will be sending letters to local residents shortly. A decision about the planning application is expected in April.  

The proposed development is one of the programmes within the Caterham and North
Tandridge Regeneration programme, which aims to make the area more attractive for people to shop and spend their leisure time in, as well as boosting the economy and creating more jobs. 

Councillor Martin Fisher, Leader of Tandridge District Council, said: “This is an exciting opportunity to significantly improve Church Walk in Caterham and enable Caterham to thrive economically, while developing a vibrant community. The plans are available for everyone to view online and I would encourage everyone with an interest in the area to do so.”
