An improvement programme for Main Square multi-storey car park has been given the go-ahead.
Surrey Heath Borough Council's decision-making Executive at its meeting on April 11 agreed to recommend to full Council a new upgrade totalling £343,500.
The latest project will support improvements completed at the car park in 2011 when CCTV and energy efficient lighting were introduced and the main stairwell revamped with new doors, repainted walls and a high quality floor surface.
The new enhancements will involve providing a facelift to improve the remaining two stairwells and refurbishing three lifts, as well as installing shutters to close off upper floors when not in use at night, improving security and saving energy costs.
Further proposals to replace the pay-on-foot system will be considered at a future Executive meeting pending further consultation.
Surrey Heath's portfolio holder for the built environment, Councillor Liane Gibson said: "The Council is committed to regenerating Camberley town centre and is working closely with its partners and local businesses to deliver this.
"The latest upgrade will support the economic growth of the town centre by providing a more pleasant parking experience for customers and support local traders by encouraging return visits."
The council is currently consulting people on the future development of Camberley town centre up to the year 2028. Visit www.surreyheath.gov.uk/ctcaap to look at the Camberley Town Centre Area Action Plan consultation document and find out how to give your views.
