Camberley Town Centre is currently undergoing an exciting regeneration programme led by Surrey Heath Borough Council (SHBC).
To date SHBC has invested £140 million into Camberley; which has already seen the acquisition and subsequent refurbishment of The Square shopping centre, substantial projects to improve the roads, pavements and public realm areas in the High Street and the preparatory works have started on Ashwood House as it is transformed into 116 high quality residential apartments.
The next stage of regenerating Camberley is investing in and improving the area along London Road (A30) between the High Street and Park Street and opposite the historic Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. SHBC is now seeking to appoint an experienced regeneration developer with the resources and vision to deliver a comprehensive and transformational development of the 2.0 ha (5.5 acres) site.
It is envisaged the scheme will involve a new build development. The scheme has the capacity for 350 residential units and 10,000 m2 of commercial space, together with public and private car parking. SHBC has also asked bidders to prepare proposals for providing new offices as part of the development which could unlock other sites in the town centre for redevelopment.
Karen Whelan, CEO, SHBC said:
“This is an exciting stage for the regeneration of Camberley. The London Road opportunity occupies an important landmark site in the town centre and the right development will not only transform this part of the town but further support the ambition for Camberley as a vibrant place to live and visit.
Interest from developers who have the vision to give Camberley the investment it deserves and build its future legacy are coming forward. Together we can build a great future for the area.”
Cllr Richard Brooks, Deputy Leader, SHBC said:
“Many residents will know that developing this area has been a long-term objective for the Council. It has taken a significant amount of work from SHBC over a period of several years to reach this very significant milestone.
We look forward to securing a developer with the vision and capacity to deliver this major project in partnership with the council.”
