Surrey Heath Borough Council is suspending car park charges for up to four hours in Main Square and Knoll Road multi-storey car parks from 24 July 2020 until 13 September 2020.

In addition, the council is introducing a Knoll Road car park Parking Subsidy Season Ticket of just £10 a month or £120 a year for qualifying town centre employees.

This Season Ticket will also be available in the Council’s car parks across the borough.

Free unlimited parking will remain in place in both Main Square and Knoll Road car parks until 23 July 2020.

NHS workers and care workers will also be able to park for free for unlimited periods throughout the summer.

Councillor Alan McClafferty, Leader, Surrey Heath Borough Council said;

“We have made these decisions after careful consideration of the requirement for parking income to support our services and also the Council’s commitment to supporting Camberley’s businesses and shoppers as the COVID-19 restrictions are eased.

The four hours of free parking has been calculated to give people time to shop, visit the bank, attend appointments and enjoy refreshments safely with the social distancing and queuing procedures that are in place across the town.

The Parking Subsidy Season ticket will provide low-cost parking to our qualifying customers who work in the borough.”

All previous town centre Season Ticket holders will be contacted and informed of the date that parking charges will resume.

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
