WAVERLEY Borough Council has unveiled a virtual reality simulation of what the new Brightwells Yard will look like when it is fully completed in 2022.

The animation, commissioned by Waverley, was produced by a UCA student, Toko Andrews.

It recreates what it will feel like to walk through the retail, commercial and residential development, from East Street to the New Market Square, taking in the centrepiece Brightwells House, followed by a 360 degree spin around the residential, retail and leisure complex.

Toko Andrews said: “I’m really pleased to have had the opportunity to put all of the skills I’ve learnt at the UCA into practice like this.

"The flythrough is a great centre-piece for my student portfolio and has contributed towards the skills I’ll need for my career as an architect. I’ve really enjoyed the experience and can’t wait to visit the complex when it is complete.“

Councillor Andy MacLeod, Waverley Borough Council portfolio holder for planning policy and services, said: “Toko has done a great job and the flythrough gives a real sense of what it will be like to walk around inside the development.

"Of course, some of the colour palettes and materials will differ in the final build, but it gives you a good idea of the layout of the buildings and a real sense of the space around the shopping areas and square.

“The flythrough shows the tremendous potential that Brightwells Yard can bring to this part of Farnham to deliver both a fantastic environment for retail, commercial space and leisure, and of course much needed new affordable homes.”
