Residents in Egham have raised concerns over what they believe is an absence of protection for the town centre after planning permission was granted to a new student development.
Developers are looking to build more than 100 student beds in Egham High Street and were granted planning permission last week.
Under the plans, existing buildings will be demolished and replaced with three levels of accommodation above ground floor units in a "mews" style block.
However, residents have expressed their concerns over the lack of protection for Egham town centre, which is deemed as a Conservation area.
Mr Fisher added: "This is such an important site; it's in a conservation area on the corner of the High Street and calls out for a statement building. These buildings are for any town, anywhere. If this is suitable for a conservation area I don't understand what a conservation area is."
The plans haven't been backed by the university, who were not consulted at any stage during the planning process. However, the applicant said the scheme would bring a derelict site back to life and provides a solution to increasing student numbers.
