Designs for a new multiplex cinema, restaurants and shops in Redhill town centre go on display next week (9-12 March ). Come along to see and comment on the plans.
Residents and workers are being encouraged to come along to see and comment on the plans before a planning application for the development is finalised later in the spring.
The exhibition will be held at the Warwick Quadrant Information Centre (the former Mothercare shop) at 26 London Road, Redhill, RH1 1NN from Wednesday 9 to Saturday 12 March 2016. Visitors can drop in to see the plans between 10am and 4pm Wednesday to Friday and from 11am to 3pm on Saturday.
Staff from Reigate & Banstead Borough Council’s regeneration team and the scheme architects will be on hand to talk to visitors and answer questions on Wednesday 9 March between 10am and 1pm and on Saturday 12 March from 11am to 3pm.

The six-screen cinema and up to ten large, glass-fronted shops and family-style restaurants, to be let to well-known brands, will go on the ground and first floors. 153 studio, one, two and three bedroom flats for private rent will be built above. The scheme also includes basement parking and a new pedestrian route connecting the High Street to Marketfield Way.
The development will replace the Council’s Marketfield Way car park plus twelve shops with offices above in an under-utilised part of the High Street, opposite the main entrance to the Belfry Shopping Centre.
Cllr Mrs Natalie Bramhall, Executive Member for Property and Regeneration, said: “This will be a really exciting development for Redhill and is just what the town needs. It will give residents and the local workforce a greater choice of places to eat out, shop and spend their leisure time, greatly improving Redhill’s family friendly offer and boosting the economy. It will also provide much needed town centre housing and new jobs in construction, retail and leisure.
“Please come along to see the plans, find out more and tell us what you think.”
The public have until 18 March to comment on designs, either at the exhibition or by email to email@example.com.
The planning application will then be finalised, ready for submission later in spring 2016. If planning permission is granted, construction is expected to start in 2017 and be complete in 2019.
