Yesterday Surrey Heath Borough Council announced,
Camberley’s High Street and Public Realm areas are about to have a makeover! Works will start next week on Knoll Walk – which is the walkway which leads from Knoll Road to the High Street opposite the theatre.
- Monday 18 March 2019 – Knoll Walk, the walkway into town opposite Camberley Theatre, will be closed as it is cleared and prepared for the works. This will include the removal of the existing trees which have grown too big for the space, these will be chipped onsite and taken to Lightwater Country Park for use on the paths. New more suitable species of trees will be planted as part of the new scheme. This section of works will take approximately four weeks.
- 24 June 2019 – The main works will start and vehicle access to the High Street and Princess Way (east) will be restricted. Pedestrians will still be able to access the businesses and properties on the High Street and Princess Way (east).
- Summer 2020 – The project will complete and High Street and Princess Way (east) will reopen to all vehicles.
The new seating will provide a place to dwell and rest in the town. The old benches once removed will be reused in other parts of the borough including our parks.
The works will cause some disruption as they progress – but you will still be able to visit all the shops by foot while they are taking place and we will try to keep disruption to a minimum. Once the works complete they will reveal a much improved, modern, attractive place which celebrates Camberley’s heritage and is also more accessible for everyone including young families, the elderly and people with disabilities.
If you have questions about the scheme please visit us our Camberley Be Inspired stand at Camberley Carnival on 23 June 2019 and the Collectively Camberley Car Show on 17 August 2019 when you can chat to Council Officers.
