Following the creation of the new Five Year Strategy for Surrey Heath, Surrey Heath Borough Council is now consulting on the next design steps for Camberley town centre.
We are asking for feedback from residents, communities and businesses to support and inform a new town centre development strategy. This strategy will set out how Camberley could be reimagined whilst continuing to be a great place to live, shop, socialise and do business.
Councillor Alan McClafferty, Leader, Surrey Heath Borough Council said;
“Many thanks to everyone who provided input to our Five Year Strategy, your views have enabled the council to create a really strong approach for our future that has been drawn directly from the people who live and work in the borough.
We need your input again to ensure our development strategy for the future of Camberley town centre are robust and in line with what local people, businesses and communities need. Camberley plays an important role as Surrey Heath’s largest town, and it is vital that it continues to evolve and grow into an even better place to live, work and visit.
Please let us know your views – either by completing the online survey, attending our online webinar on Wednesday 17 November 2021 or visiting the stand on Saturday 20 November.
Many thanks in advance for your input – the results from the consultation will be shared in the new year.”

Camberley Be Inspired
Surrey Heath Borough Council is committed to supporting and regenerating Camberley. 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.
Large multi-use development site. Situated fronting the London Road, opposite the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, the 5.5-acre site has the potential to create a substantial development and improve the gateway to Camberley.
SHBC has signed a 25-year contract with Places Leisure to design, build and operate a new £22 million leisure centre. The new centre will feature new swimming pools, sport courts, fitness facilities and a café. The new centre opened on 1 July 2021.
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.
