Design Workshops

The Design Workshops will focus on specific aspects of the master-planning process. The workshops will allow members of the Sheerwater Community to review our design proposals and give feedback on what they think works best.

It is important to stress that the Design Workshops are focused events which will review the design proposals in order to help the Design Team continue to shape the masterplan. The workshops are not the correct forum for responding to wider questions about the regeneration proposals. If you would like to sign up to any of the Design Workshops please get in touch on 0300 373 0373 or by email to: regeneration@nvhwoking.co.uk.
