If you would like to support the Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity and have a great day out, the Weybridge run is on again in May 2022.
All family members are welcome at the run and as we take a look at Weybridge moving forward, another project meant for all ages is nearing a close.
There are still a few areas to be finalised but new cycling and walking routes between Brooklands Business Park, Weybridge Railway Station and Weybridge town centre have been essentially completed.
Plans for Weybridge town centre are less complete, a project which stalled, then restarted again after a review in early 2021. Communication is still a bit thin on the ground but there is hope.
The project is now called WeyBetterWeybridge, a partnership between Surrey County Council, the NHS, Surrey Heartlands and Elmbridge Borough Council. A dual phase program is intended, to change both sides of Church Street.
Wider community facilities remain part of the plan but priority is being given to medical services and related care. Construction is intended to be complete on the South side of Church Street from late 2023 to early 2024.
Property In Weybridge
Early stages of the pandemic brought concerns about property prices, which proved to be unfounded. A number of areas have seen notable rises, Weybridge has performed quite well, with the rise in property values around 6% over the last year.
With the furlough scheme over, stamp duty cuts phased out and rising interest rates, easy to think this may reverse but seems unlikely. Weybridge remains a desirable area and forecasts are for a further 3% to 4% rise in 2022.
The trend shown in databases has been mirrored by our own removals service, with demand in the area solid throughout the year and bookings ahead already in place. We see no reason to disagree with the forecasts.
The collapse of high streets we hear of has not truly hit Weybridge, odd empty shops but also new openings, ready for Christmas and 2022. The feel of the town centre remains one of a lively, well visited place.
A few local services have been reduced, such as garden waste collection but in general, Weybridge continues to be a well cared for town.
Ample rain to encourage plant growth and behavioural changes from the pandemic have had a positive affect on non human residents. A walk along the river Wey, the Thames, or local heath areas offers ample interest.
The long term weather forecast for Weybridge (if you believe them) suggests another year with steady summer temperatures and above average rainfall. The 2021 pattern perhaps repeated throughout 2022.
Whether rain, or shine and at any time of year, we anticipate being just as busy in 2022. If our team can help with removals in Weybridge, or offer advice on a move, please get in touch at any time.
