A new letting to a major brand is soon to be announced. 

Duncan Kite, Director of Shopping Centres at GCW said “We are delighted to have been appointed as joint letting agents for The Peacocks, joining Jones Lang La Salle.  The centre has huge untapped potential and it is really encouraging in the current economic climate that Moyallen are investing substantially in The Peacocks and Woking town centre.”  

Tim Buckley for Moyallen said, “ GCW demonstrated substantial knowledge and enthusiasm and as the centre progresses we hope that they will bring new tenants to the centre. Footfall is up and we have several new names to be announced in the Autumn and many other conversations underway.” 

GCW replace Savills as joint letting agents.
