From a press release by Surrey Heath B.c. on 27th February,
Surrey Heath Borough Council has announced that Berkeley Homes has been awarded the contract to redevelop Ashwood House and Pembroke House in Camberley.
Ashwood House occupies a key site on Pembroke Broadway in Camberley town centre, and was acquired by SHBC in 2015 to facilitate its future development. The upper floors of the building will be transformed into high quality residential accommodation, comprising around 100 flats, subject to planning permission.
Simultaneously, Berkeley Homes will redevelop Pembroke House, located on Frimley Road. The scheme has the potential to offer around 25 flats and ground floor retail space, subject to planning permission, providing affordable housing for local people and retail space for Camberley’s businesses. Following a full procurement process, Berkeley Homes has been named as the successful bidder for both schemes.
