Would you believe people are actually living in this Godawfulming building?

Did the residents of Prime Place pay a handsome sum for the expertly fitted blinds across their windows courtesy of Willmott Dixon?

Will  Godalming resident Cristine Napthine, a highly respected local journalist, receive a full and frank explanation from Mr Geldard? If she does we will reproduce it here on the Waverley Web.
Dear Mr Geldard,
I have noticed on a local social media site (Godalming Community Board) that questions are being asked about why there has been scaffolding totally covering the flats at Prime Place in Godalming, built by Wilmott Dixon and completed in 2017.
The scaffolding has been there for many months. Can you shed any light on what issues exist and what is happening there in the way of a solution as it’s obvious there must be a major problem.
Rumours currently range from the “wrong kind of insulation” to water leaking through ceilings, crooked walls and floors etc.
As a journalist (although retired I still write local stories) I wonder if you would be kind enough to outline the current situation so that I can write an accurate piece for our local paper and let the community have a truthful account of what is happening there.
It is a real eyesore particularly for people living in Victoria Road immediately behind the development.
I’m attaching a photo.
Kind regards,
Christine Napthine.
Here’s the developer’s glowing description of its multi-million-pound development.

The townhouses are interspersed with two, four-storey apartment blocks to create an eye-catching attractive addition to the town.

Our residential development specialist Be Living is providing 35 houses and 102 apartments in total, just a short walk to Godalming town centre.

Just a 47-minute train ride from London Waterloo, it’s also great for commuters while its extensive amenities and quick access to the stunning Surrey countryside justifies its reputation for offering the best overall quality of life in rural Britain.

  1. Scaffolding is expensive, unsightly and it needs regular safety inspection, especially before and after adverse weather. Willmott Dixon should engage their commitment to “Safeguarding the health, safety and welfare of our employees, those who work with us and anyone affected by our works, is always a top priority.”
