The scheme was delivered by a partnership between MVDC, Surrey County Council (SCC) and Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership (C2C LEP).
One of the objectives of the scheme is to provide a better environment for all the businesses in Church Street, including the newly arrived Waitrose store and the long established Leatherhead Theatre. To celebrate the history of the Theatre, the Leatherhead Residents’ Association and the Fire and Iron Gallery enabled five commemorative stones to be laid recognising some of the most lauded performers from the Theatre’s history, including Sir Michael Caine and Richard Briers. Since completion, Church Street has hosted Halloween, Christmas and Easter celebrations.
The proposed Randalls Road cycle path intended ot provide sustainable transport links has had to be stopped because:
There is potential to reallocate the funds earmarked to the Cycle Path scheme to support improvements to bus services along Randalls Road.
We are moving forward with our Leatherhead transport study - a key stage towards informing options for the town centre gyratory system, High Street and decisions on the public realm.
Once the Transport Study has been completed and the Swan Centre Redevelopment opportunities identified, the opportunities for the development of this strategic site will be considered further. This will be a mixed-use development that looks to include all the remaining uses identified in the Masterplan.
