Nature-led riverside urban village where the town meets the countryside.
Weyside Urban Village lies to the north eastern edge of Guildford, and north of the A3. It is bounded by the Wey Navigation Corridor to the east and the existing neighbourhood of Bellfields to the west.
BMD was commissioned in 2019 to work alongside JTP Masterplanners and Guildford Borough Council, to carry out landscape masterplanning on a hybrid application and design code, for the development of a brownfield site next to the River Wey in Guildford. Consent was granted in October 2021 and BMD are working with Guildford Borough Council to design and deliver the first phase of development. Collaborative workshops focused on the design of the interface between the existing and new communities, creating spaces that can be shared and 'owned,' helping to encourage local movement and opening up access to the river for the first time.
