Camberley Regeneration Appointment
The Mall Limited Partnership (MLP) has announced it has appointed Centros as development manager on exciting regeneration proposals for Camberley town centre.
MLP, which owns The Mall Camberley, is working with Surrey Heath Borough Council to deliver proposals which would reposition the town centre as a convenient destination of choice through the provision of new retail, in accordance with Surrey Heath's Town Centre Area Action Plan. Plans will include a major new store on London Road.
Surrey Heath Borough Council has also appointed Montagu Evans to work alongside the MLP team of Capital & Regional, Aviva Investors and Centros, to help drive momentum and prepare a suitable masterplan.
Mark Bourgeois, Managing Director of Shopping Centres at Capital & Regional, commented: "The Mall team are pleased to be working closely with Surrey Heath Borough Council to drive the delivery of these transformational town centre improvements.
"The appointment of urban regeneration specialists, Centros, is a key milestone in the preparation of the proposals which are now gaining momentum and we are looking forward to working with all of the parties involved in the project."
Karen Whelan, Chief Executive of Surrey Heath Borough Council, said: "The council has been working hard to deliver its vision for the Town Centre which has been our number one priority since 2010. This latest development has undoubtedly brought the delivery of that vision one significant step forward, which is great news for Camberley and Surrey Heath as a whole."
Director of Centros, David Lewis, said: "We are delighted to have been appointed by The Mall to manage the development process on this complex and prestigious project. Camberley has a strategic M3 corridor location on the boarders of Surrey and Berkshire and with it a very strong and discerning catchment population. A huge opportunity exists to improve the retail offer and consumer experience to make Camberley a convenient destination of choice."
