The Slyfield Area Regeneration Project is a major redevelopment of the Slyfield area of Guildford which has been designated as a Housing Zone. The project has been in the pipeline for the last ten years but has not previously reached the development stage due to development constraints caused by land contamination.
The scheme follows on from the Clay Lane Link Road, funded by the LEP, which is an essential prerequisite to enable the whole site to be unlocked. The project will directly address land remediation costs, unlocking the site for future residential and commercial development and enabling Slyfield to become a viable proposition for private sector investment.
The project also includes the relocation of the ageing sewage treatment works to the 1970s land fill, relocation of the Guildford Operational Services Depot to the old landfill site, and the Surrey Council Waste Transfer Station, as well as the building of two new industrial units.
