Camberley High Street revitalisation funding approved

Surrey Heath Borough Council is very pleased to announce that it has secured funding from Enterprise M3 Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) to improve the High Street and public spaces in Camberley Town Centre.

SHBC has been awarded a £3.5 million grant from Enterprise M3’s Local Growth Fund. The LEP supports economic growth of areas in the M3 corridor – stretching from Staines-upon-Thames to the New Forest, covering mid to North Hampshire, as well as South and West Surrey.  SHBC will add funds of £900k, so the total budget for the project is £4.4 million.

The scheme is an integral part of the strategy to develop Camberley as a major commercial centre.    It is estimated that the improvements could lead to an increase in the number of people coming into the town centre by 20% over a 10 year period. Other potential economic benefits expected to be generated by the scheme include more 100 jobs, with a total value of over £14m.

In addition to substantial structural improvement to The High Street, which will include widening the pavements, improving road and pavement surfaces; the project will also incorporate installation of public art and improved public seating and walkways in Knoll Walk and Princess Way.

Surrey Heath report positive improvement from property investments

Surrey Heath Borough Council issued this press release on their investment performance [click on image to expand],

Surrey Heath Borough Council has adopted a strategy of delivering efficiency and increasing income in order for it to be able to maintain services against a backdrop of reduced central government funding.

The Council has borrowed money to invest in property within the Borough, not only to generate an income to pay for services, but also to further its regeneration and economic development aims.

A recent report to Councillors indicated that so far this investment strategy was paying off. The Council had expected to receive a £1.5m contribution to its budget, but performance has been better than predicted.

Members heard that net income since ownership for The Square was 5% ahead of budget, and for the six months to 30 September 2017 almost 15% ahead of budget for the industrial estates the Council owns.

The increased income for The Square is helping to fund the extensive refurbishment of the centre. This should result in returns increasing further, or at least being maintained, in what is a very competitive market.

Phase 1 of The Square refurbishment covering Grace Reynolds Walk has now been completed on time and to budget (More info). Works on the rest of the centre will restart after Christmas.

Leader of the Council, Cllr Moira Gibson said: “We are encouraged by these latest reports from our advisers. The positive results contribute to overall income, and emphasise the importance of our property investments in helping to achieve the Council’s aim of continuing to offer as wide a range of services as possible in the face of Government funding cuts.”
