Royal Victoria Place (RVP) in Tunbridge Wells has submitted a planning application for a new entrance at Fiveways in the town centre. The application follows the approval of the multi-million pound retail and leisure extension at RVP. It will provide a modern and fresh entrance to the centre.

RVP Proposed New Fiveways Entrance CGI

Nicky Blanchard, Centre Manager of RVP commented “Our customers deserve a fresh, warm welcome and the proposed plans for the Fiveways entrance do just that.  Right from the start we have wanted to create something that will benefit the whole of Tunbridge Wells. Providing a modern retail face to RVP is key to ensuring a thriving town centre as well as giving customers and retailers a great experience. We believe this next phase of investment will provide a strong boost for the town centre.

“We felt that the time was right to make the application before the start of the retail and leisure extension so that subject to approval we could plan the works together, minimising disruption to both our shoppers and our retailers.  If successful our aim would be to get the project team working towards a start in the first half of 2018.”
