Public exhibition - Godalming

Unpacking in Retirement Living development from McCarthy & Stone

Proposals to redevelop land at the Christian Science church in Ockford Road, Godalming with Later Living retirement accommodation and a replacement church building.

Local residents have an opportunity to shape new homes in Godalming as McCarthy & Stone reveals proposals to redevelop the site with an attractively designed new church along with around 36 two bedroom Later Living retirement apartments for private sale.

The new church is intended to become a practical community resource and the building’s meeting room and facilities will be available for wider community use, which we hope will provide an improved service to the town as well as being an attractive addition to the streetscape of Ockford Road.

A spokesperson for the church said:

“We are looking forward to continuing our present activities in a new building, which will also be more suitable for varied community uses.”

McCarthy & Stone will share their early proposals with local residents at a public exhibition on Friday 2nd August 2013, at Wilfred Noyce Community Centre, High Street, Godalming GU7 1DY, between 1:30pm and 6pm. 

A representative of McCarthy & Stone said

“We’ve already spent time carefully researching the architecture and character of the local area, but we need to ensure that what we build is what our customers, as well as the local community, would like to see in Godalming.”

“To ensure the local community has been kept informed of the proposals, McCarthy & Stone held a series of individual meetings with immediate residents. It was a good opportunity for residents and stakeholders to ask questions about the proposed development.”

He continued “Our project team will be at the forthcoming exhibition to answer questions and listen to feedback on what we’ve done so far and the comments we receive will help us tailor our proposals into something people will want to see, enjoy and call home.”

McCarthy & Stone are renowned for the quality of their developments that give their homeowners the time and opportunity to do things they’ve always wanted to do. The apartments allow people in later life to retain their independence, close to their family and friends, in a home suited specifically for their customer’s needs, in a safe and enjoyable environment.

If you aren’t able to attend the public exhibition or would like further information, McCarthy & Stone has provided a dedicated freephone information line for you to call (0800 298 7040) and will set up a website covering their initial proposals which can be found at, which will go live nearer the time.
