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, bolstering a partnership with University for the Creative Arts
  • 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.
