Land adjacent to Tolworth Girls' School & Sixth Form

Tolworth Girls' School & Sixth Form - Fullers Way North - Surbiton - Surrey - KT6 7LQ

Taylor Wimpey is preparing proposals for new homes adjacent to the current Tolworth Girls’ School & Sixth Form in Surbiton.

  • Our site at Tolworth Girls' School & Sixth Form

    The land adjacent to Tolworth Girls' School & Sixth Form benefits from Outline Planning Permission (ref 14/10306/FUL) for the erection of 106 stunning new homes. The application was granted in September 2015 and was part of a hybrid application that included detailed consent for two 3 storey school buildings and sports facilities as part of the extension of Tolworth Girls' School & Sixth Form.
    While it was acknowledged the application would result in the loss of School Open Space, the School was able to demonstrate that the loss of this land was acceptable due to the re-provision and upgrade of the existing sports facilities. Taylor Wimpey has now been appointed to deliver the residential element of the school’s redevelopment proposals.

  • Redevelopment of Tolworth Girls' School & Sixth Form

     The school’s proposals seek a comprehensive development to facilitate improvements and upgrading of the existing school facilities and the potential to expand from a seven form to an eight form entry (and increase on the current annual intake of 201 to 240 pupils) and an increase in the total 6th form intake from 300 to 400 pupils. The new facilities include:

    •     Proposed 3-storey teaching/dining and sixth form centre to provide dining facilities and kitchen, replacement food technology classroom, additional IT facilities, additional science laboratories and business studies classrooms.
    •     Construction of the proposed Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) and long jump pit

    There are also proposals for a 3-storey building for use as a teaching, music & arts hall and library building to provide:

    •     New student and staff entrances;
    •     Multipurpose performance hall / lecture theatre with retractable seating;
    •     Improved drama and dance facilities;
    •     Replacement and expanded English department;
    •     Replacement and expanded music department;
    •     New media studies suite;
    •     Inclusion zone for pupils;
    •     Ancillary staff rooms.

  • Our proposals

    Our proposed scheme seeks to create a high-quality development that can fulfill the local need for new homes while respecting the character and heritage of the surrounding area.

    We are proposing to build a mixture of 1, 2, 3 & 4 bedroom properties, including apartments, semi-detached and terraced homes.

    Our designs include a contemporary style of architecture, with the use of a crisp materials pallet of roof tiles and occasional cladding. 

    Changes to our proposals

    Following responses to our public consultation in March, Taylor Wimpey has since made alterations to the development layout.
    Our amended proposals include the following key elements:

    • 106 high-quality new homes
    • A mixture of 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom properties
    • Parking has been relocated away from public open space
    • Reduced number of 3 storey dwellings
    • Increased on street landscaping
    • While the design of the access road on to the residential site has been agreed prior to our public exhibition, a £224,500 contribution will be made to Transport for London for Highway Improvements
    • We are currently reviewing our apartment designs to ensure we deliver a solution that will be in keeping with the surrounding area 

     

    Updated Layout

    Our revised layout has taken into account the comments and concerns of local residents.

    Our proposed development will preserve all significant trees which are currently located within the site. Existing healthy boundary trees and hedgerow will also be retained and enhanced with new planting to help screen the development from neighbouring properties.

    The majority of the site is of negligible ecological value. No evidence was found of any dormice, nesting bats, Great Crested Newts or badger sets. Ecological enhancements have been recommended and have been included within the planning design, including treelines augmentation and protection, tree planting, use of log piles/bird boxes.

    Car parking will be provided at the development in accordance with the Royal Borough of Kingston’s parking guidance. This is illustrated in the table below.
