Camberley town centre is ready to welcome you back. As lockdown restrictions are eased many shops will be open again from Monday 15 June 2020.
Surrey Heath Borough Council’s Leader, Councillor Alan McClafferty said: “The council has been working closely with Collectively Camberley, the management teams at The Square shopping centre, The Atrium and individual businesses to ensure the town is safe and accessible. There is signage across the town to direct you and please observe the social distancing markers on the floors.
Please be aware that the High Street and Princess Way are in the middle of extensive regeneration construction – but the active works are fenced off and are safe to walk around.
Parking in Main Square car park remains free for an initial period.”
Camberley Be Safe
To ensure you stay safe in Camberley please observe and follow the social distancing guidelines that are in place in Main Square car park, The Square shopping centre, High Street, Park Street and The Atrium.
When shopping please;

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.
Kier Property has been selected by SHBC as 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.
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, sports courts, fitness facilities and a café. The new centre is now in construction and is due to open in 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 while high street retail faces challenge nationally. www.camberleybeinspired.com
