Consultation Website


Welcome to St. Mary’s Wharf, a new sustainable and vibrant town centre development by Native Land for Guildford.

Key Update — January 2022

We are pleased to confirm that Native Land submitted a planning application to Guildford Borough Council in October 2021, for the redevelopment of St Mary’s Wharf.

The submission followed three rounds of public consultation which attracted high levels of engagement and strong support for the creation of a high-quality development, with new public access to the River Wey, places to live, shop, eat and relax, and high standards of environmental sustainability.

Key features of the proposed development include:

  • Opening up the River Wey by creating publicly accessible spaces including a new landscaped riverside walk
  • Access from the High Street to the river for the first time in 50 years
  • A new pocket park and landing points for the future provision of a pedestrian footbridge to the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre
  • A new civic square at the end of the High Street, a gateway to the town and riverside, with a pavilion for community uses
  • Two new sustainable, residential buildings with retail and restaurants at ground floor, providing new homes, shops, cafes and bars
  • Improving access and permeability with a new residential street linking Millbrook to the River Wey
