Nexus Planning has secured committee resolution to grant for Randalls Way, the first build-to-rent 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 an s106 legal agreement) at their November 2020 meeting.
As a build-to-rent 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.
Responding to the soaring demand for rental housing
Heidi Duncan, principal planner at Nexus London, said: “We’re delighted to secure the committee resolution to grant for Randalls Way.
“The build-to-rent scheme has been developed in response to the soaring demand for high quality, rental housing.
“New build-to-rent 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, added: “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 brownfield site with landmark residential property.”
