Work to redevelop the site of an old theatre in Surrey begins this week with the demolition of two buildings.

Proposals for the site of the former Bellerby Theatre in Guildford will see it turned into affordable homes and community facilities.

A planning application is due to be submitted early next year.

The buildings being demolished on the site are Victoria Court and North Place day centre, whose occupants have been relocated elsewhere within the town.

Guildford Borough Council said the footpath from York Road to Haydon Place would be closed temporarily during the demolition period.
