Plans to regenerate Redhill train station have been submitted for approval, according to

The new station design would also include a new ticket hall (which is double the size of the original) and a multi-storey car park, with developers hoping to start work in early 2014. In addition the plans include the construction of a new public square at the station entrance.

Plans for the £40 million project has been submitted to Reigate and Banstead Borough Council by Solum Regeneration, a joint venture by Network Rail and Kier Property.

Overall, the station development is part of a wider regeneration of the area which, once complete, could see around 150 new apartments and a new Waitrose supermarket built around the interchange.

Edward Pearce, development manager at Solum Regeneration, spoke to about the redevelopment: "It is widely recognised that the area around Redhill station is in need of investment and improvement.

"This development will radically enhance the station area and create a gateway into the town of which it can be proud and and help in regenerating this part of the town centre," he added.

In addition, Network Rail's route managing director Tim Robinson said the station needs investment as more people are travelling by train.
