WYG regional director of planning and design Gary Morris said: “The proposal will deliver a high quality mixed use scheme on a key gateway site in Redhill town centre, it’s a great example of sustainable economic development and should give a big boost to regeneration in Redhill.

“The approval follows extensive discussions and negotiations between the joint applicants, Sainsbury’s and Aviva, the local authority and councillors to deliver a scheme that would play a central role in delivering the Council’s vision for regenerating Redhill town centre.”

Sainsbury’s regional town planning manager said: “We are delighted to be working with Aviva Investors to deliver this regeneration project in Redhill town centre. The new store is a significant investment for Sainsbury’s and I am pleased that our customers will soon have much greater shopping choice, in a modern and attractive environment.”
