Guildford Borough Council is on the lookout for an architect to masterplan its historic town centre and surrounding hinterland
The appointed team will create a commercially-based strategy focussing on the development of retail, commercial, leisure and residential activity within the Surrey county town.
Allies and Morrison was commissioned by the council earlier this year to create a vision document for the district.
Key proposals included creating new homes, pedestrianizing Onslow Street and revamping the town’s gyratory road network.
The latest masterplan will build on ideas and proposals within the Allies and Morrison vision while also taking account of the local property market and infrastructure requirements.
Once completed, the masterplan will be used to create a Draft Guildford Borough Local Plan and a Guildford Town Centre Supplementary Planning Document.
The masterplanning contract will last from January to July next year.
The deadline for requests to participate is 12 December.
