Union Street

Union Street proposals

On 24th June 2020, Rushmoor Borough Council’s Development Control Committee voted to approve our plans to redevelop 38-62 Union Street (running from, and including, the former Marks and Spencer store to the corner of Wellington Street and around into the High Street).

The plans for the site include:

  • Over 2,200 sqm of high-quality retail/ commercial space to create a reimagined high street
  • An exciting ‘Union Yard’, attracting independent/small retailers to lease flexible studio space
  • Public space as the focal point of the project, with pedestrianised walkways and seating
  • 100 much-needed new one-, two- and three-bedroom homes, including 20% affordable housing provision, for Aldershot
  • 128 student accommodation units
  • 1:1 car parking ratio for residential element of the scheme


You can view the approved plans on the Council’s website here using the reference number 20/00171/FULPP, or by clicking the link below.

Union Street regeneration

Demolition of the Union Street site has started, with contractors beginning to clear the area ready for redevelopment. Work will take place from 1st February 2021  likely until summer 2021, and those on site will be working to the guidelines set out by the Considerate Constructors scheme.
