Community Use Spaces

Bringing redundant station buildings back into use for our community

We’re working with the Association of Community Rail Partnerships (ACoRP) to transform redundant space at our station buildings into areas for our local communities to use. We have a dedicated ACoRP Officer to support us on this project and are working to engage with our communities at the following stations:

  • Addlestone
  • Barnes
  • Basingstoke
  • Bentley
  • Bookham
  • Branksome
  • Brentford
  • Brookwood
  • Camberely
  • Chertsey
  • Chessington North
  • Chessington South
  • Christchurch
  • Clandon
  • Claygate
  • Cobham and Stoke d’Abernon
  • Eastleigh
  • Fulwell
  • Hamworthy
  • Hilsea
  • Hook
  • Isleworth
  • Kew Bridge
  • Liphook
  • Mortlake
  • Motspur Park
  • Netley
  • New Malden
  • Oxshott
  • Porchester
  • Portsmouth and Southsea
  • Portsmouth Harbour
  • Queenstown Road
  • Redbridge
  • Richmond
  • Ryde Esplanade
  • Southampton Central
  • Stoneleigh
  • Sunbury
  • Sunnymeads
  • Wandsworth Town
  • Weybridge
  • Whitton
  • Winchfield

Each space is very different, varying from under-stairs storage to large rooms. Equally, the condition of these spaces requires different levels of attention and refurbishment.

While SWR has committed to working with groups on these projects, many of the locations will require third party funding to support the development.

 If you are interested in finding out more about the available spaces, and discussing how these could be used by local communities, please get in touch with Andy our dedicated Community Rail Manager
