Bellway reveals vision for improvements to riverside in Guildford

Bellway’s Trinity Quarter development

Bellway has revealed its vision for transforming the riverside at Wey Corner in Guildford as part of its Trinity Quarter project.

The developer is building 55 apartments on a disused warehouse site in Walnut Tree Close. One of the key benefits to the wider community will be improved access to the River Wey.

Bellway will also contribute £62,800 towards a new footbridge across the river to link Walnut Tree Close to the town centre.

Ian Curry, Technical Director for Bellway South London, said: “The River Wey is the key focal point of Trinity Quarter and it is important that the whole community experiences the benefits of the site’s regeneration.

“We will be creating a green open space overlooking the river where we will plant native wildflowers, as well as trees and hedges. A gently sloping walkway will be installed to provide easy access to the path along the river.

“Once the development is completed, we will have significantly enhanced the biodiversity and ecology of this former industrial site. It will be a much more pleasant environment and more accessible. We hope this will encourage people to walk or cycle to the town centre and to nearby Guildford Railway Station to help reduce car journeys.”

The homes at Trinity Quarter will be one and two-bedroom apartments. The first buyers are expected to move into their apartments in the spring.

Apartments are currently priced from £330,000 to £510,000 and the government-backed Help to Buy scheme is available. It requires a five per cent deposit and 75 per cent mortgage. The remaining 20 per cent is provided as an equity loan which is interest-free for five years.
