The story so far

The Oxted gasholder will be redeveloped by St William, a joint venture between The Berkeley Group and National Grid. St William specialises in redeveloping redundant gasholder sites and has unlocked some of the most technically complex regeneration sites at the heart of communities across London and the South East.

 The Council received a planning application from developers St William in October 2017 which was approved at the Planning Committee in January 2018. To view the planning application, visit www.tandridge.gov.uk and search for planning application reference 2017/2064. The application is for 77 apartments, with landscaping and associated car parking. The proposed development consists of 12 x 1 bed, 51 x 2 bed and 14 x 3 bed apartments, with 105 car parking spaces, spread across two buildings at three to five storeys on this redundant brownfield site. The apartments will be accessed from the entrance opposite Boots on Station Road East.

Where are we now?

The Council has exchanged contracts to sell Johnsdale car park in Oxted to developer St William, subject to conditions. Following St William securing planning consent to provide homes on the adjacent gasholder site, St William is now in the process of preparing a new planning application for a comprehensive residential redevelopment of both the gasholder and car park sites.

St William is holding a public exhibition to share proposals in early March, with a planning application expected to be submitted in late March and construction to start on site in Autumn 2018. Please visit the exhibition event to view proposals and provide feedback:

  • Thursday 8 March, 2pm to 7:30pm, Oxted Library, 12 Gresham Road, Oxted RH8 0BQ

You can also download the exhibition boards displayed at the exhibition events. Due to the size of the file, we have split the boards into Part 1 and Part 2. Please download both files in order to view the full proposals.
