Camberley Be Inspired. Camberley regeneration update July 2019 - Princess Way, removal of canopies


Friday, 26 July, 2019

Camberley town centre is currently in an exciting regeneration and improvement programme led by Surrey Heath Borough Council (SHBC).  

Planning permission has been granted to remove the canopies on Princess Way to further open up this space.   This work will start next week (w/c 29 July) and will take 4-5 weeks to complete. 


Princess Way will remain open at all times for pedestrians throughout the works taking place – only sections of the walkway will be inaccessible. For some stages of the work the contractors will be working in the evenings to minimise disruption to pedestrians and retailers. 


Find out more about the High Street, Princess Way and Knoll Walk improvement project here.  


Camberley Be Inspired 

Surrey Heath Borough Council is committed to supporting and regenerating Camberley town centre.  SHBC’s investments have already seen the acquisition of The Square shopping centre, commencing its refurbishment programme within the first year of ownership.  Followed by an ambitious set of projects to improve the roads, pavements and street scene.  A redundant office building has also been purchased to create 116 high quality town centre apartments, with proposals to re-deliver new commercial space.  

SHBC has selected Kier Property as the development partner for the London Road site.  Situated fronting the London Road, opposite the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, the 5.5-acre site has the potential to create a mixed-use development and improve the gateway to Camberley.  

The regeneration work is supported by a comprehensive events programme, grant schemes for independent businesses and cultural and enrichment projects to ensure Camberley is a key destination and experience.  In Camberley we are committed to reshaping and enhancing the town centre to support our community and local businesses while high street retail faces challenges nationally.
