The borough of Runnymede gets its name from the Runnymede Water Meadow near Egham, where the Magna Carta was famously signed in 1068. The borough of Runneymede was created in 1974, when Chertsey and Egham Urban Districts were merged.
Get Planning and Architecture has overseen a number of successful projects in the borough of Runnymede. Our team of experts have worked on a wide range of projects here, and are familiar with the Local Planning Authority.
Runnymede Planning & Conservation Areas
Conservation areas are sites of historical or architectural importance. Building and redevelopment can be a more complex process due to more planning regulations and constraints applying within such areas. However our highly trained staff have the expertise to address more challenging planning and design issues. We achieve the aims of our clients both on an aesthetic and functional level whilst adhering to regulations set out by the local planning authority.
Runnymede conservation areas:
Chertsey, The Hythe, Egham, Egham Town Centre, Thorpe, Englefield Green, Wey Navigation

In July 2014 the go-ahead was given for the transformation of Addlestone town centre. The regeneration will involve the demolition of several existing buildings, which will then be replaced by residential blocks providing 213 flats, a 64-room Premier Inn, and a shopping mall with a cinema, restaurants, cafes and retail units. The council has recommended that out of the homes, 53 should be much needed affordable housing. Work on this development was expected to start in summer 2015.
In other news, the development of 308 homes close to Chertsey and Virginia Water has stalled. Planning permission for the development at the former DERA site in Longcross was given by Runnymede Borough council in July 2014. However, in October 2014, a legal challenge against the council was launched over doubt about whether the council followed the correct process in their decision making.
