LONDON, 17.11.20: Award-winning planning consultancy, Nexus Planning, has secured Committee resolution to grant for Randalls Way, the first Build to Rent (BTR) development in Mole Valley. Recommended for approval by Mole Valley District Council planning department, the MVDC Development Management Committee upheld the Council’s recommendation (subject to conditions and a s106 legal agreement) at their November 2020 meeting.
As a BTR development with 214 units, the Randalls Way scheme will consist of a mix of unit types and sizes, including 36 affordable rented homes. The development, by urban residential development specialists Titan Property Developments, will provide 3,378sqm of communal open space and play space. In addition, on-site communal facilities will include a gym, post-room, residents lounge and car club.
With planning by Nexus Planning, the Randalls Way scheme has been designed by award-winning international architects, Broadway Malyan, and in consultation with the region’s leading built environment design support experts, Design South East.
Heidi Duncan, Principal Planner at Nexus London, comments: “We’re delighted to secure the Committee resolution to grant for Randalls Way. The BTR scheme has been developed in response to the soaring demand for high quality, rental housing. New BTR developments also reflect the changing needs and priorities of modern renters in the UK – now more than ever. These include enhanced landscaping and green space, increased residential facilities, and an improved sustainable transport offer. Following the s106 legal agreement, we look forward to the Randalls Way scheme delivering on all of these aspects for the residents of Leatherhead.”
Steve Summers, Director and co-founder of Titan, comments: “Heidi and the Nexus team have worked tirelessly with our operational lead, Ben Hughes and other key design team members, to achieve consent for our development proposals at Randalls Way. As can be seen from our approved plans, we’re aiming to significantly enhance the local built environment by replacing a large, derelict brown field site with landmark residential property. When occupied, it is easy to see how the residents will be able to re-energising local commerce in support of the Council’s own vision to Transform Leatherhead. We’re already looking forward to next phase of delivering this project so that all the local benefits can be realised.”
