The Galleries

We consider the redevelopment of The Galleries essential for the regeneration of Aldershot town centre and one of our highest priorities.

Development progress on The Galleries

On 11 November, our Development Management Committee granted planning permission (subject to a S106 legal agreement) for the demolition of the existing buildings and the construction of 596 new flats, an improved public car park, and new ground floor retail floorspace. 

The proposals also include a large, new public space that could be the focus for town centre events.

Shaviram's planning application can be viewed on our planning application website. The application followed a two-day public engagement event, supported by an online consultation, during July 2019 to get public feedback on these emerging proposals.

About The Galleries

The Galleries shopping centre sits in the heart of Aldershot town centre and is privately owned by a company called Shaviram. Since buying the site in 2016, Shaviram has been working closely with us to bring forward comprehensive regeneration proposals that reflect the regeneration ambitions set out in the pdf icon Aldershot town centre prospectus [11Mb]

Key council decisions

In order to bring forward the proposals, we have approved, in principle, to relinquish our land interest in the High Street multi-storey car park and to take a long-term lease on a new 250 space car park, which will form part of the proposed redevelopment. This will mean that the existing car park will be redeveloped as part of the scheme.

External funding for regeneration

We were successful in securing £3.4m of government grant funding from the Housing Infrastructure Fund (HIF) to help with infrastructure works that will be needed for the scheme.
