A pop-up shop has been created to help Woking stakeholders shape the town’s masterplan.

The Shape your Place shop in Mercia Walk will have planning officers available to explain the masterplan’s 10 themes and allows visitors to submit their views.

From Saturday August 20, the pop-up shop will be open Mondays (except bank holidays), Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays between 11am and 3pm until the end of September.

Cllr Ann-Marie Barker, leader of the council, said: “This administration is committed to making the Woking Town Centre Masterplan consultation as accessible and inclusive as possible, so I am delighted that we are opening our ‘shape your place’ pop-up shop.

“Conveniently located in the heart of Woking town centre, the shop provides yet another way for residents, businesses and key stakeholders to find out more about the masterplan and, most importantly, have their say.

“The comprehensive consultation gives residents the opportunity to help shape the town centre’s future. It suggests what infrastructure will be needed to deliver Woking’s continued growth, along with what retail and leisure facilities are needed, whilst preserving important environmental and heritage assets.

“I would encourage all residents, and those who have an interest in creating a modern, welcoming and vibrant town centre, to get involved and tell us their views.”
