Redhill Garden Community

Our vision

Our vision

Redhill Aerodrome Garden Community - an exceptional place to be born, to grow up, to make a career, to raise a family, to retire; to enjoy a rich and fulfilling life.

Vision document

This is an unprecedented opportunity to make well-planned provision for housing development and economic growth in a sustainable, well connected and low impact location.

The site straddles the boundary between Reigate and Banstead Borough and Tandridge District, in the heart of the coast-to-capital corridor so it can significantly help the housing and business needs of both councils in a sustainable location on a single site.

Redhill Aerodrome Garden Community has all the potential to become a thriving new place where local people really want to live and to work.

Substantial investments to infrastructure will improve local conditions by making new connections for through traffic and better public transport links to key local destinations.

We will deliver...


A diverse mix of 8000 new homes
including affordable and discounted market
homes, housing for families or retirement,
private rented homes, and homes tailored
to special need requirements.


Premium education facilities including two early years nurseries, two 3 form entry primary schools and an “all-through” combined 3 form entry primary school, 8 form entry secondary school and Further educational facilities.
