Supporting Native Land, Kanda achieved a consent for a mixed-use scheme in the heart of Guildford.

    Kanda Consulting supported Native Land on their proposals to redevelop Debenhams Guildford, known as St Mary’s Wharf, to provide a new sustainable and vibrant town centre development. The proposals were approved by Guildford Borough Council in April 2023.

    The proposals will provide 185 new private and affordable homes, sat above new retail and restaurants at ground floor, along with creating new publicly accessible spaces and green spaces across the site.

    Kanda worked with Native Land on a detailed community and political engagement strategy to support this, including complex stakeholder engagement and work post-submission to continue to liaise with the local community around amendments to the application and ensure local buy-in and support.
