Surrey planning committee approve £40m Redhill cinema redevelopment

Plans for a £40 million cinema, restaurant and retail complex in Redhill town centre has been given the go-ahead by Reigate & Banstead Borough Council’s Planning Committee.

The redevelopment will include a six-screen cinema and up to 11 glass-fronted shops and family-style restaurants on the ground and first floors with 153 studio, one and two-bedroomed flats above.

Construction of the PRP designed development will begin later this year and will replace the council’s Marketfield Road surface car park plus 12 shops with offices above in the High Street, opposite the main entrance to The Belfry shopping centre.

The scheme, to be delivered by Coplan Estates, also includes basement parking for residents and a new pedestrian route connecting the High Street to Marketfield Way.

Craig Sheach, director at PRP architects, said:"We are thrilled to have achieved planning approval on Marketfield Way.

"This landmark scheme will be key in driving forward the regeneration of Redhill. The provision of a new cinema, restaurants and shops will turn the town centre into a destination in its own right, whilst the new apartments will provide much needed high-quality housing."
